The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) is hosting its annual orthopaedic conference March 12-16 at the Venetian/Sands Expo at 201 Sands Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada 89169.

It is a well-known stereotype that many doctors—especially older ones who were trained in traditional record-keeping and patient charting methods—do not like to use complicated software such as Electronic Health Record (EHR) solutions.
Payment collection is a key issue for any healthcare facility. However, a major part of effectively collecting payment for medical services is applying the appropriate Evaluation and Management (Office Visit) medical billing codes for each patient visit.
The 2019 Louisiana Orthopaedic Association Annual Meeting (or LOA 2019) is just around the corner, and Phoenix Ortho will be there once again to showcase our orthopaedic-specific Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. This annual meeting of Louisiana-based orthopaedic surgeons, clinic managers, and other industry experts represents a great opportunity to gather, share information, and learn about exciting new orthopaedic technologies and solutions.
In orthopaedic surgery, the global period can be an important consideration for the billing of services. For those who are wondering “What is the global period?” it is, as noted by the Office of Workers’ Compensation, “a period of time starting with a surgical procedure and ending some period of time after the procedure.”

Having easy access to patient information is crucial in the healthcare industry. If healthcare providers do not have information about recent patient interactions, they may end up scheduling redundant tests or prescribing new medications that react badly with the patient’s existing medications that were prescribed by other specialists.
For a busy orthopaedic doctor, there never seems to be enough time in the day to do everything they need to do. A busy general practitioner might see 10-15 patients in a day—a busy orthopaedic specialist might see 60-80 patients in a single day. If the paperwork to process each one only took 5 minutes, that would still be roughly five to six and a half hours of paperwork on top of the time spent helping patients.
