The opportunity

We sat down with the Practice Manager of this medical practice to discuss their Cubiko journey.  

 

The medical practice needed a system that could: 

  • Help identify potential revenue 
  • Assist in the management of chronic disease for their patients 
  • Save the practice team time 

The practice manager had previously used a clinical data analytics platform to find patients eligible for chronic disease related item numbers. Using this was time-consuming for having to: 

  1. Open the program 
  2. Run a collection on their data which took 10 minutes 
  3. Find the relevant MBS item number 
  4. Manually set the clinical filters. 
  5. Utilising server resources during the day 

This reporting used to take the Practice Manager two hours a week, and the clinical nurse up to 30 minutes a day to find the opportunities for the Practice to deliver exceptional clinical outcomes.

Item Optimisation

  • Cubiko’s Item Optimisation metrics focus on MBS Item Numbers and the potential eligibility of that patient based on their billing history, not looking to make a clinical judgement. 
  • Madison set processes in place in the Practice to have the reception and nurse print off eligible patients for the 10997s, and then to follow up with their doctor and, if clinically appropriate, the patient 
  • Item Optimisation allows for efficient use of the MBS schedule to deliver exceptional patient care while also increasing revenue.

The results

INCREASED BILLINGS BY $1,500

“Let’s look at today, due to Cubiko’s item optimisation and clinical judgement from our doctors, we were able to bill for an ATSI Health Assessment, and four care plans we wouldn’t otherwise know were possible. That’s $1,500 today from increased revenue due to Cubiko.” says the Practice Manager.

SAVE 5 HOURS A WEEK

Cubiko’s one-touch reporting and analytics allows this practice manager to save 2 hours of her time a week, and her nurse 30mins a day. In saving time, they can work with more patients and ensuring the Practice is sustainable into the future. 

“Using Cubiko, we found $600 in opportunities for 10981s, today had $1,500 in additional billings through Cubiko’s item optimisation and saved time to deliver greater patient outcomes.”
