    Medical billing services can actually increase your practice’s revenue.

    The revenue your medical practice pulls in is closely related to a large number of factors – and some of them may not be the first to jump into your head. While having a large patient base and offering quality patient care are hugely important, how you run office functions in the practice can make a big difference.

    Even a number of very small factors can have a major impact on your office’s revenue. The idea of streamlining medical practice office functioning has become more popular since the technological age began and computerized systems became more common in businesses. While most doctors’ offices and hospitals are still not using electronic medical records systems, many have chosen medical billing outsourcing as a way of improving office procedures.

    There are a number of ways that medical billing services can streamline the office and actually increase revenue. Though it may seem counterintuitive to pay a third party to collect money owed to you, the division of labor is a smart choice and here assigns a task that most doctors do not specialize in – accounting and billing – to a financial specialist. Also, because the staff at physician medical billing companies like PhyLogic specializes only in medical billing, they have the time to call your patients, properly file paperwork, and make certain that you collect all revenue owed to you. This also saves you the time and money involved in hiring someone to help with billing at the office – or training your existing staff to do the job.

    Medical billing may seem like a huge leap, but accounting reports – and office headaches – will show that it’s a smart step in the right direction.

    About PhyLogic

    PhyLogic Healthcare, LLC, is a specializing in maximizing physician revenue by outsourcing to experts in the United States. Dedicated to their clients and customer service, PhyLogic offers fully customizable plans.

    The hardy rubber tree is an unusual plant which was first found in central China. It can reach as high as 60 feet in the warmer climates of the world. The technical name for the tree is called Eucommia ulmoides, and the tree contains latex or gum. Eventually, the bark of the tree was used for medicinal or health purposes. The extract is considered to be of balanced and acrid consistency and has been historically used in an oriental tea or Chinese tea blend. Traditionally, anywhere from 7 to 10 % of a medicinal tea will consist of extract from Eucommia ulmoides.

    The hardy rubber tree must be at least 10 years old before material is suitable for harvesting. The trunk bark is typically gathered between April and June in three large sections. During these spring months, the potency of the medicinal elements is at their highest. To process the extract, the bark is folded in on itself, with the inner surfaces touching each other. The bark is then left for several days until the inner areas turn black. The next step is to allow the bark to fully dry via sunlight exposure after the outer layers of bark are removed. During growing months, the tree’s living bark is cracked regularly to expose and collect white latex threads.

    Eucommia serves to treat mainly ailments when prepared in oriental tea or Chinese tea. It is used as a detoxification element and promotes kidney cleansing, colon cleansing and urinary tract health. Reduction of genital itching is also a known benefit of the hardy rubber tree plant. As an overall detoxification agent, Eucommia will assist with expelling toxins from the blood. It will also aid in boosting the overall immune system, effectively helping the body to fight off disease and illness.

    Medicinally, Eucommia is used to treat lower back pain and knee pain. Deficiencies in strength of the lower body can be attributed to kidney and liver health. Eucommia cleanses the liver and kidney which in turn strengthens the lower body. The oriental tea or Chinese tea made from the hardy rubber tree plant will also promote joint lubrication and functionality as well as bone strength and health. Eucommia is said to have age defying properties when used regularly and used to make its drinkers light of mind and light of age. Finally, drinking teas made with Eucommia can promote weight loss and long-term weight management.

    Modern technology has gifted us with a number of different inventions that have made life easier and safer, and medical alarms for seniors are a good example of that technology in action. With the appropriate device, any senior person, or their close friends and family, can have peace of mind that should anything go wrong; help is literally just around the corner. But, if technology is not something you are familiar with, you probably don’t know the difference between the devices and what you are shopping for. We have put together these top three tips to help you decipher the technical jargon and make an informed decision on your safety:

    1. Compare The Ranges Of The Devices

    The range of your device will determine, to a large extent, how effective it is. At least 600 feet is reasonable for an average sized home. If, of course, you live in a smaller place, you won’t need such a large range. Some people prefer a slightly more complex device if they have gardens or like to go out walking a little further away from their homes. Some people like to have senior alarms even if they live with their families, as it provides a support system when they are left alone.

    2. Make Sure You Get an Instant Response When Pressing the Button

    Some call centers may divert your call, or communicate the emergency, to a 911 control room, which can waste valuable time in the event of a medical emergency. To be truly beneficial, the alert should trigger the call center to make immediate contact. If they do not receive a response they should contact emergency services directly and get hold of your closest listed relative. The company should demonstrate proactivity.

    3. How Simple Is The Device To Use?

    Generally, medical alarms are quite quick and easy to install, but if the installation is more complicated than your chances of using it, or it puts you off using it, you may want to reconsider. It only makes a difference if it is easy to use. Remember that you should also have battery back-up in the event of a power failure. It is also helpful if the company offers full support during the installation process, so that you have someone to call if there is a problem. Also you should have the option to cancel an emergency alert in the event that you activate it by mistake.
