Are you new to eClinicalWorks? For example, you get a task on payments and charge entry and your boss says it’s a simple job and shouldn’t take the whole day. Medical Billers or physicians new to eClinicalWorks have to jump through a lot of hoops to get a job done which sounds simple but gets challenging if you are trying for the first time without someone by your side.
Posting payments quickly and accurately to each patient’s account in eClinicalWorks, is one of the hardest skills and takes a lot of practice to develop it. Inefficient automated payment posting systems which proved to be good for few months, has now given up to your expectations. Apart from a system, double entry and wrong keyed transactions are the key reasons that hit your bottom line.
The electronic mandate has made each and every process complex. One of the many goals of a staff is adapting, scaling and simplifying the payment posting process.

What do you do to achieve the above goals or to carry out the complex process of managing payment posting in eClinicalWorks? Called the support to guide/walk you through the steps to add/delete payments using your EMR but was put on a long hold. Let’s see why you shouldn’t be fully dependent on support.
To work with an EMR, it needs a lot of experience and adequate support. There can be unexpected situations at any given time. If you lack both, it gets challenging to fix. We do reach out to the technical support team but the expected resolution is not guaranteed. And, if it gets confusing at the first place, example the Rep doesn’t seem to understand your problem, it takes a lot of hours and the resolution is either a temporary OR is put on hold.
The above issues are related to accounting and technical. I don’t mean to show the EHR in the poor light OR say there is no one out there who knows.
Well, this is about revenue management. Again, it’s just someone’s personal opinion. When you plan of taking/switching an EMR’s RCM service, there’s a lot to do before you end up signing. Example, one must know what are the services covered by the provider, the contract terms and conditions, policies and many more.
It is difficult for any organization or an individual to gain 100% customer satisfaction.
Let me tell you that eClinicalWorks is one of the most appreciated and high ranked EHR, according to BlackBook market research, 2015 under all categories .If you go with the above voices how about this:
A happy and satisfied customer, what else does an organization want. Below is the latest feedback.
So this proves there are people out there to help you with what you are looking for. But we have to have something with us or give a 100% short before we approach the support. It is in the benefit of a staff of a medical practice to have a step by step guide handy. It will save the search time and help you hone your skills. Mastering the complete eClinicalWorks billing takes time. Instead a better choice would be to practice and master one procedure at a time.
Let me walk you through some simple steps to delete/post a payment in eClinicalWorks.
