Physician Overrides

The “Physician Override” feature is a convenient workaround for situations where data is not exported by your EMR, or the data that is exported needs to be overwritten at the Premier program level before claims can be submitted to payers that have specific requirements based on your credentialing. 

Physician Overrides are available for each EMR format (import only) in the Interface Library.

 

First, click the drop-down arrow in the “Classification” column to see the following selections:

Next, click the drop-down arrow in the “To Replace” column.  This will display the Physician Library entries corresponding to the Classification you have selected along with (Any) and (Blank).

 

Finally, click the drop-down arrow in the “Replace With” column.  Don’t forget to click OK to save the entry.

How an Interface Works

    Interfaces that import data will only run when the program is open.

    Some interfaces are machine and user specific.  This means the interface will only run when the user is logged into the machine that the interface was configured on.  This is since some parameters are machine/user specific such as mapped drives, etc.

    Interfaces are predefined within Premier.  All available interfaces are listed in the ‘Interface Library’.

    Interfaces can be managed by the administrator only.

    Import/Export Interfaces are only active if the Premier program is running on the machine that the interface is configured on. 

    Incoming data must be reviewed before being saved to the Premier database.

    Interfaces can be configured on multiple computers.

All interfaces require an Activation code; please contact EZClaim to obtain the activation code. The interfaces available may be different than shown on this screen shot.  Contact EZClaim for specific information on available interfaces.
