On the surface charge capture seems simple enough. A provider documents the service/procedure that they provided and the patient diagnosis. But there is so much more complexity that rules the charge capture process. There is a countless number of rules, thousands of numeric codes that can change annually as new codes are introduced and others are retired. If the changes you submit violate just one of the many rules, payment will be denied until the error is corrected and the claim re-submitted. If ambulatory healthcare providers providing hospital services in today’s tough economy and brutal insurance market think they can succeed, or even compete, without eliminating the paper and time that their current hospital charge capture and census management systems waste – they are sadly going to fail.
If your current charge capture process is causing you to miss charges or spend money on additional steps, it may be time to eliminate the old fashioned paper way and move to a streamlined mobile charge capture system.
If your current charge capture process is causing you to miss charges or spend money on additional steps, HybridChart is the solution for you.

This process allows for a lot of human error and unnecessary steps. Clients who begin working with HybridChart’s mobile charge capture system see upwards of $30,000 in savings in the first month alone.
