Streamlined medical records should prevent erroneous medical billing in the first place if the entire country uses the same kind of electronic medical record codes. The entire health care industry should use the same medical billing codes for medical records across the country. With electronic medical records for each patient, duplicate and fraudulent billing should be eliminated or these errors should be more easily apparent.
I definitely think that there should be controls put in place to prevent fraudulent billing using electronic medical records. I think that a person's medical records is something that should be protected at all costs. And is something like stricter policies are need to do that, then so be it.
Yes, controls should be put into place to prevent fraudulent billing using electronic medical records, because there is so much fraud in our medical system. It is hard to know exactly just how much of our medical billing is fraud; sometimes, even if you ask a question at a physical, it will be billed as a separate consultation.
It's obvious that there are some sketchy things going on in the medical world that we should investigate. Fraudulent billing is not one of them because it's usually done for a good reason. People are sick and can't afford health care. Sometimes they have to bend the rules a bit just so they can get medical care. Our system is already messed up enough as it is, we can overlook this.
