In order to import patient data into In Touch Biller Pro, you will first need to export the patient data from your previous EMR/Billing system.
Existing patient data will need to be entered into a .CSV formatted file before it can be uploaded in In Touch Biller Pro.
A sample file is available to used and can be accessed by going to:
1. Patients from the top menu
2. Click on Patient Roster
3. Then click on Download Sample File.
The first step in transitioning away from your existing system is to export your patient data into an Excel file. Most systems allow you to export your patient's demographic information in an excel format. If you don't know how to export your data in an Excel format, please contact your current software vendor for assistance.
In order to import your patient data into In Touch Biller Pro, you will need your patient data in an Excel format with the following mandatory columns:
• First Name
• Last Name
• DOB (mm/dd/yyyy)
• Address Line 1
• Phone number
Columns "V" and column "AT" and "BN" require you to enter the corresponding Health Fusion Payer ID in order for the correct insurance information to transfer over for each patient.
To access the Health Fusion Payer ID list, follow these steps:
Note: The import file must match the formatting of the sample file in order for the information to import correctly in In Touch Biller Pro.
You can do this on your own, or have us do it for you. Contact your Account Manager for more information. Once you sign the service agreement, just email us at email@example.com to initiate the 'Data Reorganization' service for In Touch Biller Pro clients.
Once you have completed the .CSV file with all your existing patient data in the correct columns, you will then upload the file to In Touch Biller Pro.
To upload your .CSV file, go to:
1. Patients from the main menu.
2. Click on Patient Roster
3. Chose file to upload by clicking on 'Browse' button
4. Once the file already appears as uploaded, click on 'Upload' to finalized the process.
In Touch Biller Pro will let you know if the file has any errors that needs to be corrected. If the file is uploaded successfully, the system will show your patient demographic information in the Patient Roster and the Account Status is "Current". In Touch Biller Pro will automatically create a patient record for each patient.
