The rapidly evolving technology and complex diagnostic protocols has made cardiology billing a cumbersome process for many healthcare practices. This complexity of the entire process leads to considerable gaps, which, if not recognized may lead to a huge loss of time and efforts.
In fact, the constant advancements lead to ever-changing codes for almost all the procedures. When it comes to cardiology billing, there is always a possibility for up or down-coding a procedure. Since frequent changes in codes keep occurring in procedures including angioplasty, ECG recording, lilac repair, Stent replacement, etc.
It is important to efficiently manage your cardiology practice so that things don’t get messed up and the primary focus is not diverted from patients to administrative tasks. Medical coding and billing is a big challenge in cardiology. It includes collecting and documenting the patient’s medical records timely and correctly. The entire process of billing is challenging and involves various steps to be initiated. However, partnering with Unify Healthcare Services will be a step in the right direction.
