Upcoming #KareoChat: Pros & Cons of Outsourced Billing

August 26th, 2015 by Kareo

This Thursday, August 27, at 9 AM PT, @ehrandhit hosts the #KareoChat on the Pros & Cons of Outsourced Billing for medical practices. “More and more practices are turning to an outsourced billing provider to streamline their billing operations,” says John Lynn of the EMR, EHR, and HIT blog. “Doing so comes with its own pros and cons. Understanding the goods and bads of outsourced billing will help you make the decision that’s right for your practice.”

In the #KareoChat, John will lead a conversation on these questions. Review them to prepare for this event and share your perspectives.

  1. Why are many practices choosing outsourced billing over in house?
  2. What are the disadvantages of outsourced billing?
  3. How will ACOs and value based reimbursement work with an outsourced billing company?
  4. How do you select a high quality outside billing company? What differentiates these companies?
  5. Does your outsourced billing company need to have tight integration with your EHR?  Why or why not?
  6. What are the pros and cons of outsourcing your billing to your EHR vendor?

Join us @ehrandhit and @GoKareo at 9 AM PT on Thursday. Hope to see you there!
