Line item accounting is combined with strong receivables tracking software to provide financial management tools. Estimation technology and automatic propagation of payment and estimate data simplifies treatment planning and collections. The Collections Manager provides filtering tools for identifying types of outstanding payments and delinquent accounts. Centralized billing allows for specialization of focus, so that billing can be handled separately from patient care. Payments can be processed at any clinic’s front desk regardless of where treatment was performed and correctly assigned to the relevant provider or location. Centralization of patient billing history also reduces delinquent accounts and simplifies patient communication.
