New state-of-the-art technology has launched this month at DENmaar that is targeted towards filling the gaps of loss revenue for providers and groups in the behavioral healthcare industry.
We’re on a mission to increase the revenue or all of our clients, and to help them improve their patient satisfaction.
This year, we’ve made a lot of exciting updates to further our goals. We recently launched a new Paypal P2P feature (read about it here), and our latest upgrade adds additional patient capabilities to our RCM.
The new technology that has launched this month, has been added to DENmaar’s RCM, which allows for three new important features for patient billing, that will:
- Improve efficiency.
- Reduce time for staff and costs.
- Increase revenue from patient collections.
- Adds two more additional push to click and send statements to the PayPal P2P feature.
This update is incredibly easy to use, with icons made to send a P2P invoice, email statement or postal statement with click of an icon. We’ve also added color coded icons, which indicate the last time any invoice or statements were sent. The new automatic month-end invoicing system reduces staff work by auto posting payments made by credit card to your dashboard and to our RCM. The best part is that all of these premier features have been integrated into the current software, there is no additional cost associated with accessing them, they are included in our billing services.
This new feature targets anyone looking to improve patient billing of their group, specifically those experiencing frequent high revenue loss.
We’re proud of what we do! We’ve got a lot of technology innovation on the horizon — from artificial intelligence, to fintech and virtual reality — aimed to improve and evolve the behavioral provider landscape. Our commitment is to bring the latest tools to the insurance and patient billing and credentialing services we provide.

Technology is revolutionizing health care and behavioral health one app at a time. OK, it’s not all about apps, but mobile and tablet applications are one piece of the technology pie that’s making patient management easier for providers.
Apps are in the frontier of their development and influence in the health care industry. In the not so distant future we expect to see apps that offer reliable patient monitoring, portals for clinical decision-making, prescriptions and even diagnosis.
While there are many ways apps are being utilized in health care, here are three of the key ways providers are using apps to enhance their practices right now.
Knowledge and industry news.
Aside from games, using apps to gather news and stay up-to-date on the best practices of any trade is a huge draw to apps in general. For example the APA Journal has an app that “with just a swipe of your finger, you can glide from article abstracts to press releases explaining the importance of studies. Journal subscribers can also access full-text articles, says Susan J.A. Harris, senior director of APA Journals.’It’s targeted to our researchers, clinicians and students,” she says. “We know they are very busy, so our intention was to have a product that would quickly and easily deliver the latest research to them.’” Check out the app by clicking here!
Most people are familiar with the use of apps for communication in health care and behavioral health. Video, voice and text meetings and consultations have become a mainstream norm. Many apps also offer a platform for all patient and business related communications like e-email and social networking. For example, according to the website apptentive, the app “Medici has made it possible to text with your doctor. The company set out to make health care more accessible for everyone, and they created two mobile applications, one for patients and one for providers. This allows patients to connect with providers in the Medici network for a fraction of the cost of going into a doctor’s office—and a fraction of the time.”
Revenue and health records management.
From accessing EHRs, patient information, history, coding and billing information, apps are evolving to be a one-stop-shop for providers to manage all of the backend information on their patients. The Denmaar app for example, is an active credentialing module that a provider can use just like they would their computer at home. Within the app, providers can manage all patient data, from payments to therapy notes.

CAQH, the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare, is a credentialing tool that houses self-reported provider data. CAQH is used by most insurance companies as part of the application process to complete one’s medical credentialing (i.e., to get on insurance panels). Most major insurance companies, like Aetna, BCBS, Cigna, Humana, Magellan and United Behavioral Health use CAQH as a part of their application process.
“CAQH solutions help promote quality interactions between plans, providers, and other stakeholders; reduce costs and frustrations associated with healthcare administration; facilitate administrative healthcare information exchange; and encourage administrative and clinical data integration.” – caqh.org
So, how can you enroll in CAQH and make sure your profile houses all of the information required by behavioral health insurance companies?
Enrolling in CAQH and getting a CAQH profile ID is the easy part. Filling out your profile and insuring all of the information required for the credentialing process is the hard part.
Here are a few things you need to know about CAQH:
- Prepare to spend anywhere from two to four hours to complete a new profile.
- CAQH does not specify exactly what information behavioral health insurers require for their applications.
- Behavioral health insurance companies require more detail and documentation than the basic CAQH profile.
- Pertinent documents are required to be up-to-date and uploaded; licenses, malpractice insurance, board certifications, W9, etc.
- If one part of your profile is either incorrect or your required documents are out of date or not uploaded, your credentialing application will be put on hold until your profile is fixed and reattested.
- Attestation is required every time you update your profile and should be done routinely as insurers require frequent reattestations.
- Denmaar Psychiatric Billing will develop your CAQH profile or review and update your existing profile as part of a one time fee of $350
Why choose a behavioral health billing company to do your CAQH profile? Because a reputable billing company not only does billing, they do credentialing too.
A billing company will be familiar with exactly what behavioral health insurers are looking for to ensure you go through the credentialing process as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Most providers don’t know what different insurance panels are looking for until they have already begun the credentialing process — when it’s too late. Requesting additional information and making corrections takes between 30-120 days.
