MBS Prompts gives oxygen to PrimaryCare Sidebar

RACGP Oxygen has added MBS Prompts to its PrimaryCare Sidebar tool.

MBS Prompts allows general practice teams to instantly identify what Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) chronic disease management items are claimable for their patients.

MBS Prompts is now available to Medical Director version 3 users with Pracsoft 3 as their billing system. It will be available to GPs who use Best Practice in the next couple of weeks.

The PrimaryCare Sidebar, designed by Pen Computer Systems, is an eHealth resource that works alongside the clinical desktop and is compatible with leading practice software packages.

The MBS Prompts point-of-care-application simultaneously reads the clinical system and the billing system and assesses the MBS items for which the patient is eligible against what has been claimed through the practice. The new feature’s ‘traffic light system’ guides users in this task.

RACGP Oxygen spokesman Nathan Pinskier said identifying the most suitable MBS chronic disease management items can often be both time-consuming and challenging for GPs and their practice teams.

Additional features will be added to the PrimaryCare Sidebar in the coming weeks, Dr Pinskier said.

Free 30-minute webinars are being held on Tuesdays from 1pm to 1.30pm and Thursdays from 3pm to 3.30pm AEDT. There is also one evening session per month for users who prefer a later time.

The February series focuses on the new MBS Prompts feature. For dates and login details, see www.racgp.org.au/primarycaresidebar.
