 Message: My partner and I bought a Bionet CardioCare machine online about 5 years ago, from Allheart.  I think it cost $600.00.  It's handy, portable (I've taken it on home visits) and pretty easy to use.  We each do our own EKG's; it takes about 5 minutes.  We charge $35.00 and get paid anywhere from $0.00 to about $18.00.  Whatever.  We use it to find out what we want to know, not to provide a billable service.  I don't see not having one.

No?  How does that work out then for your patients?

Yes? What is your flow to make this work?
And what equipment/technology do you use?
Does billing work out for the time?

We have one room per provider and no medical staff.
I haven't been able to see how we can do them but its gotten a bit silly that we don't.

I'm hopeful this group has good solutions to help me see outside the box.
