Today, you need more than just software…

In today’s medical practice, a practice management system and EHR are just the beginning. You need to keep up with a challenging reimbursement environment, and an even more challenging regulatory one. It’s not just about information technology or a software system; it’s about knowing how to use them.

This is where ASP.MD comes in, the one vendor handling all of these challenges. We not only provide powerful, flexible, always on, always up to date, totally web based information technology for your practice. We also optimize your billing. And finally we expertly guide you through the worst of whatever regulations and reporting CMS or your ACO require next.

ASP.MD modernizes your IT with the latest in always up to date web based systems for practice management and EHR. We modernize your billing, to get you the best returns at the lowest cost. And, we simplify complex MACRA requirements and step you through them, making sure you get the credit for your performance that you deserve.

Large healthcare organizations leverage IT, EHR, PQRS/MACRA/MIPS, and the regulatory environment to scare you into their fold, where you’ll work for them. They’ll tell you that it’s no longer possible to practice medicine independently, that the required systems are too complex and too expensive for any one practice to manage. But, these are scare tactics, aimed at making you an employee. The fact is,  you don’t need to be afraid, and you can be independent. With ASP.MD, practices CAN and DO do it on their own- at a much lower cost than the large organizations, and earning up to 40% more than their employed colleagues.

Software that doesn’t make you want to quit medicine…

In the last several years, you’ve probably been forced onto an expensive to buy, expensive to maintain EHR that doesn’t even do everything you need and is already behind the curve. It may even require you to do extra, redundant work or require you to export data to another system for quality analytics. Meanwhile, you’re thinking that a software system is supposed to make your life easier, not harder. After all, isn’t that the point?

Enter ASP.MD. Totally integrated, fully web based practice management, EHR, and MIPS analytics without any up front costs. Always up to date without any maintenance, everything you need for MACRA and MIPS, and a whole lot more. Incredibly well designed, ASP.MD minimizes the extra data entry you need to do, by combing through the data it already has on your patients to meet quality measures and eliminate your need to double document. The system is incredibly affordable. And if you use it, it will probably result in increased earnings which outweigh its costs.

Perhaps it’s time to get away from a system you’ve been forced onto, and instead go with something you choose. You just might feel a whole lot better.

EHR

The ASP.MD Medical Office System was designed and built by a physician software engineer. He understood better than just about anyone just how busy doctors are, just how unfamiliar with computers many of them are, and, just how arcane a software system can quickly become if not properly designed.

So, he built a system focused on usability, and built around several key design features.

  • Make the system powerful, but easy to use.
  • Limit data entry; don’t require unnecessary or redundant data entry.
  • Integrate all parts of the system, so that it’s very easy to move from one section to another, with minimal clicks.
  • Concentrate a lot of data on a few screens, so that a lot of navigation isn’t required.
  • Build help and tips right in to the workflow, so that users know what’s what.
  • Provide excellent online documentation to assist users as necessary.
  • Assist users behind the scenes, doing things for them that they would otherwise have to do themselves.

In addition to good design, the Medical Office System is also molded through years of user feedback. Hundreds of features have been added per user requests. And features have been fine tuned and modified until they are truly intuitive. ASP.MD takes customer feedback to heart, and it shows.

The result of these principles is a very powerful system, that’s not hard to use. See the panel below for screen shots and page by page list of features. See our features page for a summary of features.

PRACTICE MANAGEMENT

A good practice management system is as important to your practice as a good EHR. The ASP.MD medical office system features powerful scheduling and registration, with a host of added features like automatic electronic eligibility checking and an automated phone/text/email appointment reminder system. AMOS makes sure that your staff captures everything that’s necessary for billing on patient check in. Electronic coding eliminates paper encounter forms; built in coding rules reduce coding errors. HCC tips alert you to the best diagnoses to choose for maximal reimbursement. All this adds up to clean, ready to submit claims which are then automatically submitted by the system, with a first pass rate of over 98%.

Following submission, claims are scrubbed and then adjudicated, and any rejected claims immediately flagged for follow up. Likewise, accepted claims are paid and electronically posted, typically within 15 days.

Finally and perhaps best of all, the ASP.MD Practice Management components give you complete insight in to your billing status, in real time, at any time. If you elect to have ASP.MD work your claims, you can see how we’re doing, right down to the claim level, whenever you want. No more putting blind faith in your billing company, and finding out months after it’s too late that they’ve let tens or even hundreds of thousands go. Take a look at the panels below for an up close look at ASP.MD Practice Management features.

PATIENT PORTAL

The ASP.MD Patient Portal makes communication with your patients easy. To add a patient to the portal, simply get their email address at the front desk. Then, click a button, and ASP.MD will email the patient a login to the portal and instructions on how to get going. From there, it’s as easy as can be; the patient logs in, and they can see all of their core information, see lab results, and message you or receive a message from you. You can also, at your option, easily share notes or documents with the patient. Finally, they can download a summary of their clinical information for another provider should they need it. See the panel below for images of the patient portal, what it features, and how easy it is to use it.

Billing

ASP.MD doesn’t just make the best web based medical billing system on the market. We also use it to provide the best medical billing services. Most billing companies don’t use or control their own software system. So, they pay a lot for their systems, and pass the costs on to you. And, when they need something updated fast, it often doesn’t happen.

By making and controlling the software we use, ASP.MD can do more and charge less. Additionally, our billing experience drives our software; we update it constantly to deal with the latest challenges. And every new feature we add, goes out to you the very same day. With web based software, there’s no waiting for the next version. Do you really want to pay for billing software made by a company that doesn’t do billing? And, do you really want to use a billing company which doesn’t make, understand, or control the software they use?

At ASP.MD we’re tech experts, medical experts, quality experts, and billing experts – a rare combination, but exactly the combination  you need. With our proprietary system with rules built right in, we’ll get you paid more, faster, with fewer denials and a much lower cost. And, we’ll go beyond software, with experienced staffers working your claims constantly. At ASP.MD we don’t just do the easy part- we do it all. For less than you’ll pay anywhere else.

MEDICAL BILLING

With ASP.MD billing services integrated with ASP.MD software services, you’ll get the smoothest, most efficient, least costly billing service available, with the best possible outcomes.

And, you’ll have complete, real time insight in to your billing process. No more wondering how you’re doing or whether your billing company is really working your claims or letting tough ones ride inappropriately. No more finding out months after the fact that they’re doing a less than optimal job, leaving money on the table that should be in your pocket.

With ASP.MD’s fully streamlined and integrated scheduling, registration, practice management and billing, your front desk will immediately know any patient balances in real time. So, when they’re checking in a patient, they raise the issue of any unpaid balances immediately. It’s the most effective way to collect, and, it will make a difference.

ASP.MD’s billing and follow up process is streamlined and works like a machine to get your problem claims worked and paid. Compared to in house billing, you’ll never have to worry about employees on leave or vacation. Our scale is such that we always have enough redundancy to keep your account totally up to date.

With an average 28 days in A/R, a 95% first pass payment rate, and, collections of up to 98% or even more of allowables, you can rest assured that every penny that can be collected is being collected.

Want to keep your existing IT systems but still save 40-50% on your billing costs, with better, faster collections? We can do that too. ASP.MD can plug in to your current infrastructure at any level, and still provide substantive savings over your current process.

TRANSCRIPTION

Still prefer dictating over typing or checklists? Give our transcription services a try. We’ll typically shave 30-40% off your costs, with near perfect accuracy and overnight turnaround. Want to avoid the computer interaction as much as possible but need to capture structured data for quality reporting? Use our structured dictation service to extract the data you need (then use ASP.MD’s quality reporting features to report).

At ASP.MD, we make medical documentation smooth and painless.

Guidance and Compliance

IT. EHR. HIPAA. Practice management. Billing. Coding. ONC. PQRS. Meaningful Use. MACRA. MIPS. ACM. CPT. ICD-10. QPP. IPPS. eCQM. IRF. LTCH. SNF. The list goes on…

Do you ever wonder if the Federal Government has entire departments organized just to dream up new and trickier programs for you to adhere to, and, to constantly change existing ones so that you can’t possibly keep up? And other departments to post reams of arcane, conflicting, and out of date documentation on any of several federal websites about these programs? It certainly seems that way, doesn’t it?

The regulatory environment for today’s medical practices is overwhelming. Just when you think things have settled down, congress releases another 2,000 pages of healthcare legislation, including lengthy updates to all of the healthcare IT programs. It’s simply too much.

Unless, of course, you’re with ASP.MD. ASP.MD simplifies the regulatory burden. We make data gathering and reporting seamless and easy. Our distributed documentation keeps on you top of the reporting requirements. Our system tracks your data and presents it in useful dashboards so that you can see how you’re doing. ASP.MD even monitors your progress, to see how you’re doing. And finally, if you need to, you can call and actually talk to an expert. Someone who knows what they’re doing, and can tell you what to do.

Have you been forced into manual registry reporting? Combing your EHR for data, manually extracting it, and then plugging it in to another website!? What’s the point of having an electronic health record, when you have to manually extract data?

Or, are you locked in to claims based reporting, where you have one chance to get it right, and you can’t go back.

Consider the ASP.MD alternative; see your patient, document your visit, and let us take care of the rest. We’re one of only 17 vendors in the country which is both a CMS “data submission vendor” AND a CMS certified “Registry”. And unlike other registries, there’s no manual data entry with ASP.MD.

ASP.MD has gotten every one of our providers through meaningful use and PQRS. Give us a call to see how much easier we can make MACRA and MIPS for you.
