What does P3 stand for?
The founders envisioned the name, P3Care, after many brainstorming sessions and practically evaluating the stakeholders in the healthcare industry. After critical analysis, they concluded that three entities are under the direct influence of the healthcare sector – Patients, Providers, and Payers. You cannot exclude any one of them if you look at the process, starting with the patients visiting the doctors and ending up with the doctors getting paid for their services. As the US healthcare system moves from the paper-based forms to EHRs (Electronic Health Records), everything that happens during the exchange of information goes through computer systems – the IT-based medical software.
Two names that come to mind when we talk about the digital sphere of healthcare are the EHRs and the practice management systems.
Practice management systems handle the operational elements of a practice or a hospital like the number of doctors, their names, the staff, nurses, and the medical equipment information. EHRs, on the other hand, are more patient-centric, carrying Protected Health Information (PHI). PHI contains patients’ histories, appointment schedules, medicines’ refilling timelines, things patients are allergic to, lab reports, diagnoses, past and current treatment procedures, and e-prescriptions.

What is HIPAA?
HIPAA is an acronym for the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act. According to HIPAA, the medical information is protected from unnecessary public exposure. However, medical billing companies, in-house staff, and the payers have access to PHI (Protected Health Information) in a safe environment of hack-proof computers and other devices.
HIPAA, by law, keeps PHI from coming into contact with people who are not playing a part in the virtual health IT process. P3Care is HIPAA compliant and follows a strict policy when it comes to the security of EHRs and patient records. The relationship between a provider and a health IT consultant thrives on the trust. Therefore, if you are thinking of P3Care as your medical biller, medical billing auditor, HIPAA security & risk analysis consultant, credentialing & enrollment agent, meaningful use reporter or MIPS Qualified Registry, feel free to get in touch with us today. We do our best when it comes to helping providers realize the full benefits of PHI,
Taking RCM to the next level for improved collections
What is RCM?
RCM stands for Revenue Cycle Management. It is the management of the income cycle of a medical professional or provider. We work with primary care physicians, specialists, nurses, anesthetists, and chiropractic so that your hard work pays off.
Hovering the mouse over the RCM button on the website opens a drop-down menu showing the list of services that we are offering. Pathology and clinical labs link to the page where you can read about the laboratory billing process. The steps on the page ensure a smooth billing cycle until the reimbursements reach your bank accounts. Our medical billing & coding staff is sufficiently educated and highly eager to learn. Thereby, figuring out and implementing the latest updates by CMS becomes one of our strengths.

Credentialing & Enrollment – Establishing your authenticity and adding to your reputation
You may be familiar with credentialing as a medical, provider or physician. It is a screening process that authenticates healthcare professionals as medical professionals. The degrees, certificates, qualifications, previous working statuses, residency, and licenses should concur with the claimed criteria. If there are discrepancies in what they are saying and what is found in the records, the candidate is denied the job. In case of insurance credentialing, the specific insurance company will not add them to their network for reimbursements.
Enrollment in Medicare, on the other hand, requires a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC). A MAC is a middleman or the fee-for-service contractor to get us through the process. Directly approaching CMS is not recommended.
Credentialing is not an easy task. Get yourself authorized and credentialed today! Call P3Care for guaranteed and reliable results 909-245-8350.
Medical Billing Audits – Identifying the phases needing perfection
Medical billing audit is one of our services that you can avail if you are not satisfied with your current medical billing, whether it is in-house billing or an outsourced company. There is a checklist of things for medical billing & coding. We keep these things into perspective performing the audit. We will analyze the reasons behind slow revenue cycles and poor collections and try to overcome them quickly.
Finding out the reason behind those denials is one of the critical areas that can affect the speed of the RCM process. By comparing the percentage of approved claims with the ones facing denials, we can drive the acceptance percentage up.
As a standard practice, we should leave no room for errors in the first place. It is what veteran billers do to have impeccable first-time acceptance rates.
Accounts Receivable Management – P3Care never lets your claims pile up!
Accounts Receivable Management or A/R Management is a significant part of the medical billing process. If the insurance companies do not respond to the billing claims that need following up, they start piling up in the form of accounts receivables.
P3Care timely checks claims sent for reimbursements with the insurance companies. However, if there are outright denials, we revisit those claims and fix and resend them. If you are not filing them back within a given time frame, those claims may never be reimbursed.
Medical Coding – Experienced medical coders for error-free coding
You don’t seem to have a problem when you have the best medical coding staff at hand. Why are we the best? Our coding staff is equipped with the latest medical coding system – ICD-10. The ICD-10 is a revised version of the ICD-9 update.
MACRA/MIPS Consultants – Sticking to bonuses and evading penalties
MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System), under the Quality Payment Program (QPP), is a system that aligns with the requirements of the modern-day healthcare industry. It is a value-based reimbursement model which is here to improve patient outcomes keeping the costs of healthcare delivery to a minimum. MIPS gives real value to the eligible professionals (EPs) for rendering their services. It also rewards them with incentives and bonuses at the end of the year against a CPS (composite performance score). To achieve MIPS objectives, each MIPS qualified individual or group of clinicians should complete a set of measures. It is where P3Care comes in. We report or submit those measures to CMS, on your behalf.
Despite the advancement in technology, sometimes the complexities of the digital age can be overwhelming for the providers. And outsourcing a company for compliance to the MIPS guidelines can be a much more affordable and reliable option as compared to the in-house solution.
Medicaid Meaningful Use Specialists
Since the Medicare EHR Incentive Program is now an active portion of MIPS under the performance category of Advancing Care Information (ACI), we are left with the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
Why do we have to demonstrate meaningful use at all?
As the value-based reimbursement system is in effect and we are advancing towards actual care delivery with fewer expenses and improved quality of care, meaningful use of EHR systems has become mandatory. In 2018, it is not only for the 90-day period but the whole year. Now as providers you must exhibit meaningful use throughout the year.
Give us a call if you think you can count on us for bonuses and rewards.
