PIMSY Pays for Itself

PIMSY EHR saves our clients time and therefore money…but how!?
Practice Paper Trail
EHR means electronic health records (often referred to as EMR, or electronic medical records). It’s essentially an electronic form of your traditional paper charts. Many practices use EHR in conjunction with a PMS, or practice management system, that handles things like client appointments, payroll, provider scheduling, etc – but it’s more efficient to use a software that integrates both EHR and PMS.
EHR and PMS reduce paper waste by recreating your paper forms electronically. They also save you time, because forms, checklists and other documents can be completed (or signed) only once instead of the multiple times that is often required on paper. Of course, data security and HIPAA compliance are greatly enhanced by protecting your patients’ PHI (Protected Health Information) and adding additional layers of security (see “How Does PIMSY Help You Stay Compliant?” for details).
EHR also connects the data: for example, a treatment plan created in PIMSY can be pulled up in the assessment note, treatment note, group or team note and utilized as many times as needed. You don’t have to physically attach it to your new note or recreate it – the treatment plan is saved and popped into the note for easy access. Simple steps like these can easily add up, especially among multiple providers and save your practice hours of work.
“I would highly recommend PIMSY to other therapists who are looking to streamline their paperwork at a reasonable monthly cost.” – Seth H., Business Owner
Behavioral Health Billing
We’ll just let our clients explain how this works:
- “We are now functioning at a 50% faster recovery rate for money and a 50% lower denial rate.” – Kim T., Agency Director
- “I just did my invoicing, and it took me 1/10th of the time it used to! THANK YOU!” – John M., Practice Associate
- “I can now do my electronic billing that used to take days in a matter of minutes. No more searching for folders, spending hours on billing, trying to remember insurance authorizations. It is all here.
- Thanks to PIMSY, I am getting ready to add a therapist to my practice, because I now have the tools I need to effectively manage my clients, my billing, and more therapists.” – Seth H., Business Owner
Training & Support
One of the biggest potential challenges any time you utilize software is knowing how to use it: being thoroughly trained, using the product to its fullest ability, and having solid customer service available when you have questions or want help.
The PIMSY team provides the implementation and training you need to become completely comfortable with PIMSY. We help craft customized solutions for your unique software needs, and after training is complete, we offer stellar support.
This means being able to reach someone on the phone when you need help – and additional customer service options such as email support, a Help Desk with ticket tracking, how-to videos, a client Forum, complimentary client webinars and more.
“I’ve researched numerous of other EHR software and was unable to find one that was so comprehensive and affordable.” – Manote P., Practice Owner
Mental Health Compliance Education
PIMSY goes above and beyond by giving complimentary educational tools and resources to our clients. For example, we recently offered our clients 2 private ICD-10 webinars to provide information and options – we also sent them a 4 page action item guide on how to prepare for this important change.
These types of resources save our clients hours of research and worry and helps them ensure compliance in this ever-changing industry. See our Resource Centers for examples.
Ongoing System Enhancements & Refinement
PIMSY updates happen at least 3 times a year and give our clients free new functionality. We always provide update release notes, complimentary training webinars and videos, and Forum updates to keep our users up to speed.
“PIMSY more than pays for itself by streamlining my office, improving efficiency and reducing billing times.”
