Check out PCC's top 5 billing tools for pediatric practices!
"PCC’s Payments tool allows billers to post personal payments, copays, and credit write-offs at any time. Payments can also be posted during patient check-in, when you post charges, create a hospital visit or billing encounter, or by families right in the Patient Portal.
You can use the Payments tool to write off bad debt and review an account's complete payment history. Updates to the tool include the ability to edit the payment and apply the payment to specific charges, instead of the oldest charges. After you’re done posting payments, don’t forget to print a receipt!"
It's #BabySafetyMonth and here's how pediatricians can support families and their communities in protecting babies via PCC.
"The top topics the AAP focuses on for all children are safe sleep, gun safety, and water safety, but safety encompasses many areas of a child’s life, from exposure to secondhand smoke, safe transportation options, and much more.
Pediatricians are well-versed in providing reassuring advice and tactful caution to caregivers on the safety of their infants. While safety guidance may remain essentially the same, it never hurts to reexamine the ways your practice offers safety guidance and resources for families."
Do you have a patient that is chronically late for appointments? Here's how to encourage your patients to respect your time and arrive on time.
"The practice should establish a concise, written policy regarding arriving late for appointments. It should clearly state the position of the office and the physicians. The policy should advise patients to arrive early to complete their paperwork or to complete the paperwork online to facilitate their office visit. Patients should be told that if they arrive late--and state a reasonable time such as 30 to 45 minutes--they will be seen at the end of the day or must reschedule their appointment."
