Growing physician trend: Simpler billing processes and no more paperwork

The U.S. healthcare systems have not been designed to make physician’s life easier. Years of training and abilities are being wasted while dealing with billing and paperwork as less time is dedicated to patients that truly deserve and need quality care. Practices and Hospitals are not spending enough time to improve operations.

Medicare, for example, is a single-payer system in which the federal government pays the bills for those who qualify, but hospitals and other providers remain private. Despite the conflict of ideas about healthcare systems, the truth is that more physicians are now adapting better to changes and searching for less convoluted ways to deal with their billing processes.

The growing trend is that physicians want to spend more time taking care of the patients and to offer healthcare to as many people as possible. Today, less than half of the practicing physicians own their practices according to the American Medical Association, and they want less participation in who pays the bills. On top of that, studies have also shown that about a third of the physicians time is spent on administrative work. This clearly indicates the opinions of the majority to rely on one system to pay medical bills to make the process simpler and smoother.
