Cardiologists often review electrocardiograms (EKGs) on behalf of hospitals or other physician practices. This is a very important process for hospitals – in fact, it’s required by The Joint Commission, the nation’s leading healthcare accreditation organization. However, obtaining reimbursements can be tedious because of the large number of claims and the relatively small payments per claim.
At First Coast Billing, we’ve developed specialized software that allows us to submit claims in bulk on behalf of cardiologists. Our software interfaces directly with hospital databases. So, all our cardiology clients have to do is read EKGs and receive reimbursements. We do everything else. At present, more than 25 hospitals and nearly 300 cardiologists in Florida are utilizing us for this service.
