Juggling Multiple Practice Locations? Here’s an Easy Way to Boost the Bottom Line
Maintaining multiple practice locations may have been your dream since dental school as a way to reach more patients, boost revenue, and ascend into a more comfortable future. But that doesn’t mean it’s an easy feat—especially when it comes to centralizing and streamlining practice data and patient information between offices.
Dentrix Enterprise, a practice management solution for large-group and multisite dental practices, consolidates this essential information from multiple office locations in one easy-to-use software program. Aside from creating a more cohesive front desk operation, the software is uniquely designed to improve revenue cycle management and help you achieve your financial goals.
For example, by streamlining accounting functions for all locations, you can more effectively bill and collect payments for a variety of situations that are unique to multisite practices. And by creating and sending batch insurance claims electronically for all locations and providers, not only are you reimbursed faster, but the front desk gains back more time to focus on providing a better patient experience by talking through treatment plans, sharing important office protocols, and discussing preop and postop instructions.
Here’s a deeper dive into 3 Dentrix Enterprise integrated software tools that can help increase practice efficiency and boost the bottom line:
Through an integration with Veradigm, the market-leading provider of electronic prescriptions, Dentrix Enterprise ePrescribe helps clinicians prescribe medications easily and safely—directly from the Dentrix Enterprise software. A web-based solution, ePrescribe automates the process of writing prescriptions and transmitting them to pharmacies, while flagging dangerous drug-to-drug interactions, drug allergies, and dosage errors that might be missed when prescribing on paper.
Patient billing doesn’t have to eat up precious hours from the front desk team. Dentrix Enterprise QuickBill statements take the place of manually produced dental billing statements, as well as the time-consuming printing, folding, stuffing, sealing, stamping, and mailing that goes with them. QuickBill statements look professional and can be easily edited to change credit cards accepted, line item descriptions, and the invoice color.
In addition, addresses corrected through the National Change of Address Verification are reported for update in Dentrix Enterprise, keeping your database up to date and making it even easier to stay in touch with patients.
With just a few minutes and a few clicks of the mouse, Dentrix Enterprise eClaims allows you to create, validate, and electronically send insurance claims to your payors—reducing your reimbursement time significantly. In many cases, claims can be adjudicated in real-time. Part of the Dentrix Enterprise software, eClaims does not require bridges or third-party patches. Attach digital x-rays, perio charts, and photographs to claims right from within the software and then send them to the largest list of payors in the industry. Before sending your insurance claim, eClaims verifies that all the necessary components are included, which helps reduce the frequency of rejected claims.
When you choose the right software partner for centralizing these kinds of processes, you’re choosing to increase efficiencies, improve your bottom line, and strengthen your multilocation organization.
