Answer Wiki:
If you implement an EHR, this would mean that you should be able to eliminate manual data entry since the encounter can be completed and sent electronically. in addition, you will be able to use some of the builtin functionality such as the checks for your coding to ensure you are billing appropriately.

There’s uncertified EHR software, which I hope you know to avoid.

Then within the certified electronic health record software, they can be certified as complete or certified as modular. So, I agree, those certified as complete EHR will eliminate the need for third party billing services. But the modular EHR systems may not eliminate billing.

In fact, if you ask your third party billing provider, they will give you a list of EHR systems that they interface / work with. It may take a while, but companies that do billing only, will become extinct.
