Patient Demographics Entry Services
Accurate capture of patient details is perhaps one of the most under-rated processes in the revenue cycle process chain. Not only does the data captured in the demographic entry process form the base for the medical record, but it also affects insurance claims payment. Error-free capture of patient information is essential for clean claim submission and facilitates quick claims processing by Payers.
The front-office at the place of service should accurately capture the patient information, either via paper-based registration processes or via the scheduling system. Accurate information about the patient is critical to ascertain the patient’s eligibility and benefits, obtaining prior authorization, and error-free claims filing. Additionally, population health analytics is possible only by utilizing accurate patient information.
Details captured in the Patient Registration / Patient Demographics Entry process
At Medical Billing Wholesalers, we have trained our team of revenue cycle professionals to validate all information available in the face-sheets. Our team contacts the provider’s office or the medical billing company if any information is incomplete or erroneous in case of any discrepancies. Our team members enter the validated data on the client’s practice management software with a high degree of accuracy and within a turnaround time of 24-48 hours. We review and update the following information on the practice management system:
Patient’s legal name, age, gender, address, phone numbers
Patient’s social security number for identification
Allergies if any
Special requirements (interpreter, assistance for physically disabled people, medications, Ambulance, stretcher access, etc.)
Payer information (name of the Payer, mailing address for claims, and group and policy numbers)
Details of secondary as well as primary Payers
Medicaid or Medicare card (if the patient receives federal or state assistance)
Name, address, and telephone number of the person who will be responsible for payments
