Patient Barcode Scanning
Claimocity is constantly working to improve the daily workflow efficiency for doctors. We systematically evaluated every feature a hospitalist could use to
Should I Scan the Patient Wristband Barcode or the Barcode on the Chart?
Whichever is easier. Both will populate the same level of data including all the relevant insurance information, billing demographics, identity verification, and other high-value inputs. The reason you can use either is that at the point of care it is extremely simple and efficient to just scan the wristband if the chart is not present. But if you need to input or update a patient’s info after the visit or after discharge then it is much easier to use the app to scan the chart code.
Does the Patient Barcode System Provide Everything Needed?
The hospital patient ID wristband barcode provides everything needed in order to verify patient identification, input demographics, create a billing persona, and reference relevant medical records available in the hospital system.
Not only are they ideal for hospitals because they help eliminate the possibility of mistaken identity, medical errors, and switched charts that are more common as patients switch rooms or shift within the hospital facilities, but they are perfect for the modern world where data transfers are much easier electronically than on paper.
While hospital staff use a specific barcode scanner for their facility purposes, Claimocity has integrated a smart function into our software that acts as a medical barcode scanner app to instantly transfer all the relevant data to the billing department where it is vetted and populated into the PM software for use in scheduling, billing, reporting, and claim capture.
