The old saying, “Jack of all trades, Master of none”, is being celebrated as a much sought after quality in young businessmen today. But when it comes to medical practitioners this quality is not supposed to be admired. Doctors have a responsibility towards the society and any mistake in the diagnosis/treatment can cost someone’s life. A physician’s life is already stressful and they shouldn’t attempt to take care of medical billing all by themselves.
All the administrative duties such as managing accounts, documentation, scheduling, submission, medical billing can be exhausting for the physician or his/her small team. Besides all of this, the main responsibility of the doctor and its gravity remains the same. The consequences can be challenging as it often diverts doctor’s attention from giving focused care to his/her patients.
