Digital Insurance Capture: Increasing Accuracy in the Medical Field

Did you know that 25% of healthcare expenditures in the United States are due to administrative overhead? Errors made in keying patient information including insurance details are the most common reasons for these extra costs. Wrong information can lead to incorrect bills to patients, and can sometimes even lead to fraud cases. Luckily, there are new systems that medical offices can use in order to eliminate chances of human error.

Automated insurance capture is the solution to curb inaccuracy with medical administrative tasks. Manual intake is inefficient and leaves multiple opportunities for errors. It can take extra time for medical providers between calling payers and visiting insurance websites. Automated processes reduce the chances for human error, and information can be collected and verified in a matter of seconds. This means that medical administrative staff can spend more time on their other tasks rather than fixing problems that are caused by incorrect insurance capture. 

Digital insurance capture is not only beneficial for medical staff, but for patients as well. With automated insurance capture and verification, patients receive accurate prices for their medical services. Accurate price models can also enable better decision making overall in patients and increase their confidence in the care they receive.
