Why Our Bi-Directional Interface with Practice Fusion is a Big Deal 

Are you ready for better billing and stress-free data entry? Managing patient data is time-consuming, especially when working across multiple platforms. It can be tedious to manually transfer documentation from one system to another.  

CollaborateMD and Practice Fusion offer a bi-directional interface for automatic data integration. This interface provides automated claims and billing, dual-data uploading, and overall administrative efficiency. It’s one of the only bi-directional data systems that integrates with Practice Fusion. 

By taking advantage of this partnership, practices can save time, improve staff operations, and shorten billing cycles. We’re proud to offer this innovative solution to our customers and Practice Fusion customers alike.  

Keeping track of patient data has never been easier.  

Let’s take a closer look at how this bi-directional system works, and how it can benefit practices everywhere.

Next-Level Integration: CollaborateMD and Practice Fusion EHR for Enhanced Medical Efficiency 

CollaborateMD delivers the leading cloud-based practice management and medical billing software solutions. This partnership is designed for Practice Fusion users to help streamline operations. Practices will be provided with superior billing software, bi-directional capabilities, and seamless integration.  

Electronic Health Records (EHR) are a vital component of any medical practice. These records contain all the clinical records of each patient. Using this interface, data can be sent back and forth between both platforms. Practice Fusion EHR can send patient information to CollaborateMD’s billing software. And CMD can send billing information back to Practice Fusion.  

Manually entering data can be monotonous and time-consuming. Not to mention that it’s imperative that data is transferred correctly. Unfortunately, human errors can happen. Our interface ensures that nothing slips between the cracks.  

The bi-directional system allows information to flow from one system to the other, digitally transferring vital data. Both programs will automatically update and transfer information back and forth. This can save countless hours of duplicate data entry and administrative tasks.  

CollaborateMD Billing Systems 

All healthcare practices have to navigate medical billing. It can be challenging for many and requires attention to detail. Even small mistakes or data errors can significantly affect your revenue.  

Efficient billing systems help to limit these errors, and incorporating high-end software creates an all-around smoother billing process.  

CollaborateMD offers billing and management solutions that account for the little details. These systems simplify front and back-office operations. With CollaborateMD, your practice can improve workflow and help reduce any billing mistakes.  

We offer advanced billing features, such as: 

Claim Control and Task Management 

Our claim management system allows users to set tasks based on the status of a claim. This allows prioritization of work and speeds up the reimbursement process. 

Claim Tracking  

Our software is integrated with the clearinghouse, which easily allows users to perform claim analysis and editing. It also gives users direct access within our software to track the lifecycle of each claim. 

Claim Scrubbing 

Practices can use our claim editing programs to check for any claim errors before submission. This helps improve accuracy, reduce denials, and enhance the overall revenue cycle.  


Our billing dashboard offers over 125 different analytics and reports. These reports offer medical businesses insight into their operations, which can help your business operate at its highest level of efficiency. 

CMD can help to reduce A/R by up to 60%. This efficient billing system has measurable benefits for your medical business. It is listed as the top fully integrated billing partner by Practice Fusion.  

On its own, CollaborateMD is highly effective. The interface with Practice Fusion EHR enhances tasks on both ends, reducing the risk of data errors between the two systems.  

Two Systems Operating as One 

With a better understanding of what CMD offers and how it works together with Practice Fusion, let’s dive into some of the features that make this partnership so valuable for healthcare practices. 

Automatic Appointment Updates 

Once the programs are integrated, appointments will be automatically updated in each system. For any new patients, the appointment message sent from Practice Fusion will also create a new patient record in CMD. This way, your staff won’t have to create new patient files every time an appointment is scheduled.  

Patient Data Access 

Any patients entered into Practice Fusion will simultaneously be updated in CollaborateMD. Once these records are established, the data can be accessed from both programs. Any changes made in one program will be updated in the other. This prevents any outdated information or unnecessary data entry.  

Claims and Reimbursement  

When a patient bill is entered into Practice Fusion and set to “ready for biller” status, a claim will be created in CMD. This claim can then be reviewed and sent to insurance. Easy claim management can help increase revenue, as well as ensure that there are no data mistakes. An effective billing system means quicker turnaround on payments.  

Imagine what this could mean for your business. No more double-checking each record, and no more time spent creating claims. Your medical staff will be spared the headache of stressing over every little detail. Instead, these systems will handle it for you. 

Streamline Your Practice Workflow with Bi-Directional Interface 

Managing a medical practice requires a lot of office work. In 2022, administrative work alone cost the medical industry 60 billion dollars. Leveraging easy-to-use technology to complete administrative tasks faster can significantly improve your team’s daily productivity and job satisfaction. 

Medical staff are often overwhelmed with countless administrative tasks. This can slow down the billing process and delay reimbursement.  

The innovative partnership between CollaborateMD and Practice Fusion can help lighten the administrative load for your team.
