Softactics Laboratory Billing Software is a menu-driven system, minimizing the need for previous computer experience by the staff. Typically, billing staff is comfortable with the system after only a few hours of training. Program operation is consistent throughout the Billing System. Data entry screens allow you to enter, review, and correct information and help is always available to explain any special operations or options for the current screen or window. The same keys provide the same, or similar, functions consistently throughout the Billing System.
The system allows for entry and maintenance of patients' demographic and insurance information. Each patient is identified by a unique patient code which you may configure to be automatically or manually assigned. Insurance information can be maintained and edited on a date-driven basis, and edits can be put in place to insure correct carrier specific requirements. Services can then be posted, maintaining visit level and charge level detail information. Individual and client charges may be entered intermittently without changing programs (which is useful in situations where operators enter both). Changing back and forth between individual and client billing has no effect on previously posted charges and all charges posted to the patient appear on the appropriate accounts.
