Increase claims payments
Every year practices lose revenue by failing to collect total payment for services. Boost revenue from both third-party payers and patients with support from our technology—such as claims editing software, a rules engine, a cost-estimator, self-pay solutions, and more.

Edit claims prior to creation
Clean claims help avoid denials. NextGen In-line Edits provides for automated edits and real-time edits of encounters prior to claim creation. You can quickly correct issues within the encounter, which helps to accelerate cash flow and reduce claim denials.
Faster payments via rules engine
Implement a rules engine that uses custom and specialty-specific rules along with automation to review and correct charge data before it enters the PM system—eliminating 75% of the tedium of charge review. This can help speed up collections.

Follow up on denials
As part of A/R recovery, follow up on denials. If a high percentage of denials are related to the same error, look for a practice management solution with a rules engine that can be updated to avoid recurring denials.
