Breakdown of core features
Electronic health records (EHR)
The platform enables medical practitioners to write notes and prescriptions, code encounters, and manage patients in cloud-based EHR. Moreover, physicians can customize the software to their needs. Medical professionals can filter note types and templates to their specialty and set favorites and shortcuts to save time and focus on patients. The flexibility of Kareo means users can utilize the device and documentation style of their choice.
Kareo’s e-Prescribing feature takes both providers and their patients into consideration. The Kareo Clinical e-Prescribing workflow improves accuracy, increases patient safety, and reduces costs while creating a secure connection between medical practice and a pharmacy. When coupled with Kareo patient eligibility checks and patient medical histories, e-Prescribing gives providers insight and peace of mind when prescribing medications throughout a patient’s care journey.
The software equips practices to create a positive end-to-end patient experience, from getting found online to re-care reminders. Providers can simplify and automate many patient communications with tools like online scheduling and patient intake, bi-directional text and email reminders, and patient follow-up surveys.
Furthermore, Kareo updates online listings, boosts search rankings profile, and improves patient reviews on multiple social media sites. Medical organizations can enhance their online reputation and presence so more patients can find them. Then, they can use the software to maintain engagement with regular patient communications like re-care messages and satisfaction surveys.
Kareo’s web and mobile applications let providers handle patients and the complications that come with billing insurance. It allows billers to use a robust desktop application that supports flexible workflows, A/R management, reporting, and analytics. The software also presents a dashboard that shows billers exactly what tasks they need to complete. Staff can set alerts for things like no-response claims to ensure nothing slips through and can collect every dollar. Kareo processes all billing electronically, and practitioners can see how they are doing in real-time with the reporting dashboard.
