E/M level coding assistance, as used in our EMR, can be an incredible financial benefit, especially in family practice, pediatric and internal medicine practices. In fact, a recent study by Medical Economics Magazine stated that “a physician not coding to the maximum E/M levels may be losing $40,000 to $50,000 annually”. Using an EMR solution, like FirstEMR®, enables a practice to reduce their physical storage space by drastically reducing the amount of paper used for each patient. This can translate into utilizing new-found office space and making it available for treatment. Eliminating the wasted storage space by eliminating old paper charts makes sense and saves money.
