I’m working on adding a global institution mode flag in Globals and modifying the following:
- Codes by adding a new field for recording and maintaining revenue codes. Purpose is to keep revenue code with procedure code so that depending on institutions purpose they may setup procedures relating to their discipline. Better, I think, than a lookup for coder to code at billing.
- An encounter class field in encounters for out/inpatient and discharge. Not sure if patient location info belongs here but I could go ahead and add location to demographics if some of the clinicians can give guidance.
We are just missing too many data points for effective institutional billing, and I can’t stress enough how much I hate anything accounting, so for decent billing validation really need to collect data where it should originate and not in billing.
Looking for suggestions.
