Demographics Entry

Better Patient Data Quality.
Better Speed-To-Care.
Sometimes getting the basics right can make a huge difference to the profitability of your medical practice! In revenue cycle management, those basics start with the patient demographics captured by a medical or group practice.
What are Patient Demographics?
Patient demographics refers to the personal and insurance coverage information of the patient. It includes the personal information of the patient such as the Full legal name, SSN etc., and Insurance Information.
3 Important Implications of Accurate Patient Demographics

  • Vital to your practice getting paid: Patient demographics are at the core of electronic health records and health insurance claims. Accuracy of patient demographics impacts every subsequent step in revenue cycle management like insurance eligibility verification, prior authorization, and claims approvals.
  • Important for patient communication: Your entire patient communication strategy (physical statement, payment reminders via phone/ text, and electronic messages) hinges on the accuracy of contact information.
  • Impacts patient care delivery: Accuracy in patient demographics is vital for evaluating existing medical conditions and rendering value-based healthcare.

Ensuring that all patient information is received via the paper-based registration process, or the patient scheduling system is updated on the medical practice's EMR is tedious and time-consuming. Hiring additional staff is often not an option due to space constraints at the practice office. Therefore, choosing to outsource the administrative task of patient demographics updates can be financially beneficial to medical practices.
