How are you Writing for Durable Medical Equipment
What Tools are we providing to help Physicians and their Practices Paperwork can take as much as third of a Physicians workday. We have Automated prescriptions, labs, and charting but what have we done with Durable Medical Equipment Orders? Diabetes alone accounts for over 6 million Medicare CMN’s per year. What tools have we provided our Physician’s?
Current Tools The only tool being offered to Physicians is to manually fill out and Fax these orders.
DMEhub Will let Physicians Order DME directly from their EHR Physicians can select the Durable Medical Equipment they want to order for their patient DMEhub will provide the needed forms and Auto-Populate the patient’s demographic information, Insurance information, and Physician information. DMEhub’s built in rules engine will ensure that the physician can fill out the form completely the first time. Eliminating repeated faxes requesting addition info. The physician can electronically sign the form and select a supplier to send the order electronically.
DMEhub adds Security DMEhub exceeds all HIPAA security standards. All paperwork is electronically signed via Adobe EchoSign, the leader in e-signature technology. All documents are stored for 7 years and can be accessed by the Phycian’s office at any time. No more PHI laying on fax machines for any eyes to see.
Changes to the DME Market Medicare has just Passed the second round of Competitive Bidding. Go live date of July 1. National Mail Order diabetes suppliers were cut from over 500 suppliers to only 15 suppliers effective July 1. Reimbursement rates cut on average 41% on Oxygen, CPAP, Wheelchairs, Diabetes Supplies, and more.
What does this mean for Physicians? Increased Pressure from suppliers in regards to paperwork. As of July 1, all Diabetes Mail Order patients will have to get new paperwork if they are not currently with a supplier that won a bid. No more orders shipped before paperwork and supporting documentation is received. Patients will have to wait longer on their supplies.
Now Is the Time to add DMEhub for all Practices With all the changes and demands on a Physcician’s time, why not add a program that can save them time and money everyday? No more paper, faxing or time wasted on helping patients get the medical equipment and supplies they need. One simple and secure process that captures all the pertinent patient data from a physician’s EMR to populate an electronic form (eCMN – Certificate of Medical Necessity) that is digitally signed and submitted to a supplier completing the process in one step. HIPAA complaint, DMEhub™ works directly within a physician’s EMR platform (such as Allscripts) or via the web and mobile devices (such as iPhone, Android and Blackberry).
