Many practices are more than satisfied with the daily use of Medisoft. Did you know that most practices only use Medisoft about 40% of its capacity?

For those unfamiliar with Medisoft, here is a quick overview. Medisoft is practice management software for medical and medical practices. Any doctor, from physical therapists to brain surgeons, can use this software. Facilities and organizations such as pharmacies, ambulatory health services, billing services and surgery centers can also maximize their office functionality by using Medisoft. The suite of Medisoft solutions gives offices everything they need to fully automate their practice. From scheduling appointments and documenting patient care electronically to billing and account management, Medisoft helps make the practice more efficient and profitable.

Medisoft is the most user-friendly software you can buy and can be easily customized to meet your unique practice needs. More than just a medical billing system, Medisoft has the ability to increase productivity, improve efficiency, simplify administration, and strengthen work and financial flow.

Medisoft manages patient scheduling, overdue patient and insurance accounts, collections, write-offs, and patient co-payments. Here are some key features you might not know about:

Payment plans for patients: Medisoft can create patient payment schedules that include the date the first payment is due, the payment due date (ie, every 30 days), and the amount due. Should the patient deviate from the scheduled payment schedule, the patient will be included in the collections list function, at which time you can create a collections letter.

Patient quick entry: This feature allows you to select which fields from the patient and case windows to include in a patient quick entry template and even add initial defaults. You can also select any custom data items created in Custom Patient Designer or Custom Case Designer, e.g. B. a custom combo box. This feature allows you to enter patient and case data through a simple window.

Collection list: The collection list has replaced the work list that was available in previous versions of Medisoft. The collection list helps you manage financial transactions that need to be selected for collection. You can create Tickler items to track patient and carrier collection efforts. You can also create and track collection letters.

BillFlash integration: Medisoft allows you to process your bank statements online via BillFlash. Upload your bank statements from Medisoft to BillFlash and BillFlash takes care of the printing and shipping.
