Practice management (PMS) software runs the business side of healthcare, from scheduling patients to billing to generating monthly reports. Unlike with electronic health records (EHRs), selecting and overseeing a PM system isn’t typically the physician’s domain. In a large practice, it typically falls on the office manager’s or IT manager’s shoulders.
PMS vendors can take a leadership role to reduce costs in healthcare beyond clinical efficiencies. Today, many PMS companies do not offer revenue cycle enhancements such as EOB conversion or EFT Reassociation to ERAs. However, companies which live “outside” the PMS can also support the overall payment process because they provide solutions highly focused on back-office and billing efficiency.
