[Gnumed-devel] gnumed billing

A question to help in further development of a billing white paper (taking form at David Grant's TWiki.)

Does it make sense to base billing around a table of "billable items", with the "billable items" table getting "fed" from: - appointments, where one or more billable activities, and/ or supply charges (for example the cost of vaccines) can be entered - billable "to do" tasks which might originate independently of any appointment (e.g. forms completion, transfer of records [copies] to a new physician) - patient care that was delivered out of office (home or nursing home visits; hospital care) - other professional work (service on advisory groups; medical legal consulting etc; such items may, or may not, have been entered as appointments) --- here the responsible organisation would get invoiced - inventory sale of surplus supplies, and/or rental of equipment, to a different medical office - here again the responsible "organisation" would get invoiced - inventory consumption, by the office, of supplies that are worth tracking, but which may not be billable to patients --- here the office would, for inventory tracking purposes and costing, be designated the payee
