Cloud Practice Expands ClinicAid© Web-Based Billing to Ontario Medical Practices

Cloud Practice, Inc. has announced that ClinicAid, its web-based medical billing software, is now available in Ontario. Medical practices throughout the province will now be able to dramatically streamline their billing to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), easily record and consolidate their medical billing data, and integrate with electronic medical record (EMR) systems such as OSCAR. ClinicAid also makes it possible for medical professionals to access their data from anywhere using a computer, tablet or smartphone with an Internet connection.

ClinicAid is designed to save physicians time and money by eliminating or reducing many of the complications associated with billing. It also allows physicians and their staff to process more invoices in less time and with fewer billing rejections. Key features of ClinicAid include built-in timesavers such as resource tables to search for service codes, diagnostic codes, and select referral doctor IDs, a default provider setting, favorite codes lists, and templates for default invoices. ClinicAid is entirely web-based and can be used as stand-alone software or integrated with EMR systems for fully automated billing.

Physicians in Alberta who have been using ClinicAid since it launched in 2012 say it has made a significant improvement in how they bill and allows for much-needed flexibility.

“ClinicAid is fast and effective,” says John Fernandes, MD, a general practitioner in private practice in Calgary, AB. “The system has transformed our billing process and saved our practice an enormous amount of time. Adopting ClinicAid into our practice is one of the best business decisions we’ve ever made. It’s also quite easy to learn and use.”

ClinicAid facilitates physician billing submissions to Medical Claims Electronic Data Transfer (MCEDT), the Ontario Ministry of Health’s new web-based system, as well. The Ministry recently announced that all physicians are mandated to transition from the current GONet dialup modem system to MCEDT by December 18th, 2014. Switching over to MCEDT with ClinicAid will allow for automated submissions for Ontario’s practices.

“Physicians and medical practice staff will find it easy to customize the invoicing page with physician billing preferences, service codes, and diagnostic codes and to quickly select patient names, health numbers and other necessary information," says Jordan Visco, CEO of Cloud Practice, Inc., the company that developed ClinicAid. “The reporting tools allow users to easily check the status of invoices, identify claims with potential errors, filter reports through many different variables, and confirm what amounts the government has approved for payment.” Visco adds, “With regard to security, the protection of data is one of our paramount concerns.”

A video overview of ClinicAid that demonstrates exactly how the software operates and organizes comprehensive data is available on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubNGDgj6Zkg. Cloud Practice offers a free 30-day trial of ClinicAid which can be started by signing up at clinicaid.ca.

ClinicAid is expected to launch in British Columbia within the next few months and has been available in Alberta since 2012.
