MDTech & Kareo Partner to Improve Charge Capture

March 26th, 2015 by Kareo

Medical Design Technologies (MDTech), a provider of the leading mobile and web-based Charge Capture platform, has partnered with Kareo, to offer new charge capture solutions for small practices. MD Coder 10 enables Kareo users to get timelier, more accurate revenue capture and simplify patient management for clinicians rounding in acute care settings.

“Working with Kareo has reinforced to us the need for a robust charge capture solution for rounding physicians,” said Damon Spiegel, CEO and Founder of MDTech. “Having the ability to offer Kareo customers a fully integrated product right out of the box, has uniquely positioned us to quickly deploy our solution in days, not weeks or months.”

The partnership started some six months ago and the application has already been deployed in three states. Initially, these customers have seen a 90% decrease in charge lag and a surge in electronically-captured charges.

“With the growing number of Kareo providers who are doing double duty as hospitalists, it was important for us to provide a solution that would enable our doctors to quickly and accurately document codes and charges within the fast-paced hospital environment,” said Thomas Nicholas, Director of Business Development at Kareo. “Through our relationship with MDTech, we have been able to do just that by integrating their proprietary MDCoder mobile charge capture technology with Kareo Practice Management. With our joint solution, hospitalists can use their mobile devices to seamlessly transmit charges directly to Kareo within seconds, with the result being much less time spent on paperwork and more time devoted to quality patient care.”

The combination of MD Coder and Kareo is an ideal combination of flexibility and features for independent practice providers. To find out more, visit the Kareo Marketplace.

Tips for Using Copy Note in Kareo Practice Management

March 23rd, 2015 by Kareo

Kareo recently release a SALT (Same As Last Time) feature in Kareo Practice Management. It is a very helpful tool when providers see patients repeatedly for chronic conditions or other types of ongoing care. You can easily copy the encounter and then update with just the new information from the current visits!

Here’s how it works…

  1. Click Encounters > Find Encounter in the top menu.
  2. Find the encounter you want to copy and click on it once to highlight it.
  3. Click Copy at the bottom of the window.
  4. Important: Use of this feature is optional and your practice acknowledges that the responsibility for auditing a newly created encounter falls solely with you as an end user. Federal and State False Claims Acts do place the obligation on the person that processes the claim to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the data prior to submission for reimbursement.


Kareo recommends the following best practices when utilizing this feature:

  1. Confirm that all the service dates have been updated and are accurate for the new encounter.
  2. Verify that the patient’s coverage is up to date (insurance company, authorizations and ID numbers).
  3. Confirm that all providers (rendering, referring and supervising) and the service location copied from the previous encounter still applies to the new encounter.
  4. Validate that all Procedures, Diagnosis, and Modifier codes are consistent with the documentation in the patient’s medical chart.

Important Note
Use of this feature is optional and your practice acknowledges that the responsibility for auditing a newly created encounter falls solely with you as an end user. Federal and State False Claims Acts do place the obligation on the person that processes the claim to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the data prior to submission for reimbursement.
