Why outsourcing should be the new normal
Outsourcing has become more and more of a common practice in dental and dental specialty offices across the country. Did you know, with the exception of dentistry and hygiene, the majority of skill-based tasks in a dental practice can be outsourced? Here are some of the most commonly outsourced services:
- Employment agreements & HR management
- Lab work
- Supply management
- Equipment maintenance
These areas or responsibilities are typically outsourced to alleviate unnecessary stress from the practice owner and in-house team, freeing up time, and preventing burnout.
If dental practices across the country outsource many of the skill-based tasks in the office to make their lives easier, why is the #1 time-consuming task in a dental office not on the list? We are talking about dental billing. Insurance claims and codes are more complex than ever, making specialized billing expertise more and more of a necessity. Administrative teams are spending too many unnecessary hours trying to work out convoluted dental claims processes, which means spending time on the phone not scheduling patients. There is so much on their plate on any given day in the dental office, so it is no surprise that 70% of dental practices are not collecting 100% of what they are owed on insurance claims.
Outsourcing the tremendous burden of dental billing can free up the administrative team to focus on:
- Patient experience & care
- Treatment planning
- Managing team members, fostering growth, & encouraging cross-training
- Internal and external marketing & managing social media for the practice
- and so much more!
All you can do is work to make the phone ring and get patients on the schedule. Freeing up your administrative team to field those phone calls, schedule to goal, and focus on the patients is the boost your practice needs. This should be the new normal.
