Family medicine, as the name suggests, is a specialty related to generalizing comprehensive health care for people of all ages. Family medicine primarily focuses on the prevention of diseases and giving the best health care possible within the family and as a whole. A general family physician examines the patient’s overall health needs in one or more areas of medicine. This specialty is not limited to any organ, gender, or diagnosis. Family medicine focuses on the needs of a patient in the healthcare system. In most cases, a physician is the primary point of contact. Medical billing for family medicine is dynamic and growing continuously.

Personal Health Records for Family Medicine
A personal health record (PHR) is an internet-based tool that allows the user to input information about his or her lifelong medical history. Personal health records are maintained by users, and they have control over who can access their records. Specific tools available through PHRs can include functions to input daily measurements (e.g., blood pressure, body weight, blood glucose), access provider-endorsed websites, or communicate directly with health care providers by electronic means or fill patient forms online. Another possibility within the scope of PHR technology is integration with provider-maintained electronic health records (EHRs), allowing patient’s access to their full medical records. Patients can book appointments online as well.
PHR is a step in the right direction and a positive outlook on the future of medical technology. PHR use is the idea of portability and patient engagement. Patients want to be more active and involved in their health care. Patients also want to access physicians in new and novel ways which are convenient for them.
Also, Medicare is encouraging providers to switch to EHR and therefore, enforcing MIPS and MACRA penalties to provider’s reimbursements for not communicating or engaging their patients through PHR. Hence, the adoption of PHR is inevitable. GreenSense Billing EHR is fully integrated with PHR for all your Family Medicine medical billing needs.
