The Billing Module

Billing of stock, tariffs and accommodation

TriMed has a comprehensive billing engine able to deal with all legislative and scheme-specific billing and tariff requirements for both local and international billing standards.  This includes the ability to cater for fixed fees, global fees, per diem fees, fee for service and capitation fees.

Manual billing

TriMed caters for various billing mechanisms depending on the staffing structure.  Where there is centralised billing the accommodation billing is done via ward movements recorded on the patient file and then billed at the end of the patient stay. This is referred to as manual billing.  Where there is decentralised billing the system can be set to record live billing based on ward movements.  If ward movements are done real-time the accommodation billing is correct and up to date at all times during the patient stay.  This is referred to as auto-accommodation billing.

Rapid billing

TriMed has a unique TriMed Rapid Billing ™ feature which caters for stock billing directly from the storage area.  The user is identified by means of an ID scan; the patient number is scanned, and the items for issue to the patient are scanned and posted prior to being taken to the bedside.  This ensures real time accurate stock billing and reduces stock losses from remote storage locations.

Other services billing

Patient type billing

Patient billing can be grouped according to patient type for statistical analysis.

Manual theatre billing

Theatre billing can be done either by a manual billing process from the theatre sheet after the event or by means of the TriMed Rapid Theatre ™ which is activated by scanning the wristband of the patient entering the theatre.  The Rapid Theatre takes care of the theatre time (081/071) and the theatre gases.  All stock used during the procedure can be set-up as editable, pre-pack (linked items) or can be scanned directly from the packaging used.  The Rapid Theatre billing provides for highly efficient theatre billing.
