Advantages of Automated Medicaid Activity Reporting When Compared to Manual Reporting
In this article we will compare the two ways to do Medicaid activity tracking – manual activity tracking vs. automated activity tracking. Most people don\’t make a clear difference between these two methods but in fact automated Medicaid activity reporting has lots of benefits in comparison to the old-fashioned manual activity reporting and it can make a big difference for institutions that rely on Medicaid managed care. That is why we will provide here a side-by-side comparison of these two activity reporting approached.
As long as speed of report delivery is concerned, the manual service will take from several hours to many days before a Medicaid consulting company will take a look at the reports, though when it comes to the automatic activity tracking, the reports will be received instantly after the healthcare providers submits them.
Security is a very important aspect of Medicaid activity tracking and in regard to the traditional methods of handing the Medicaid activity reports, there is absolutely no guarantee that there will not be someone who will gain access to the paper documents. The automatic service is superior to manual activity tracking in this respect, because the data is protected by a secure SSL certificate, and each healthcare provider has an account that is password-protected.
Taking advantage of a Medicaid consulting company means that, in the traditional way, one of the employees of the company will visit each school separately and have the reports collected. In the automatic method, the reports will be received immediately by the company. Then, the minutes that each staff member has worked will be calculated in an automatic fashion. In the manual mode on the other hand, you will need to have everything calculated by the corresponding healthcare professional or nurse, which means that they will be spending their precious time filling in paperwork instead of helping students or patients.
Automatic activity automated activity tracking also simplifies making changes into reports. Let\’s say that a Medicaid consulting company does manual activity tracking and a medical practitioner or nurse discovers that a report that has already been submitted needs one or more corrections. In this case he or she will need to contact the Medicaid consulting company and ask it to do the changes. An employee of the Medicaid consulting company will need to locate the correct document and then make the changes manually. In contrast with manual tracking, the automatic reporting method allows the healthcare provider to make changes to the submitted reports even after these forms have been submitted. However it is possible for the Medicaid consulting company to finalize a submitted report by locking it so that medical practitioners will no longer be able to change form entries and only an employee of the Medicaid consulting company would be able to make further changes to that form.
A good Medicaid activity reporting will be able to help institutions and companies that deal with disabled children. It will streamline the Medicaid billing process thus allowing the medical personnel to focus on their students.
