Overview: ClinicAid is a billing program for physicians in Canada
Relevance: BC, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta Physicians
Cost: $13 – $240 per month
ClinicAid is a billing program for Canadian Physicians designed by Cloud Practice Inc. It makes the process of billing tolerable and has some cool features built in to enhance your income.
The website is hosted by Cloud Practice Inc and is incredibly fast. The server was updated in February 2020 and is now displaying robust reports in record time.
The interface is streamlined to complete the task at hand. Below is a link to take you through the program.
There are plenty of features that you can explore with the videos embedded in this post.
- OSCAR Integration
- ClinicAid is integrated into Juno EMR’s OSCAR instance. It links to the patient database of your instance and pulls the information directly from OSCAR when submitting a claim.
- What I really enjoy about this billing program is the reports generated to provide you with an in-depth overview of how you are doing in terms of your billing. This functionality provides quick access to rejections and pending claims, which is very helpful to ensure you bill effectively.
How I would use it:
ClinicAid can be used as a standalone billing program or in conjunction with Juno.
- To access ClinicAid via your Juno account, requires you to log in and then navigating from there.
- Stand Alone
- I personally have a standalone account to submit claims directly through ClinicAid and use it when I work outside of the clinic setting (emergency, longterm care, hospital). This works really well and you can literally bill on the go.
- I created elaborate service and diagostic code libraries within my accounts to find codes quickly without the need to search them. This speeds up the process significantly and I would highly recommend that you create your own when using this program.

When I look at the world wide web, I see it as a very large book with multiple pages. Each of the chapters of the book is made up of different websites where the information is hosted and each of the chapters of this book have different pages where the content resides in.
What is Ventricle and why did we develop it? Well, it comes down to clicks and accessibility to resources. The medical world is fast paced and we constantly need to find new ways to stay up to date with the newest trends and research in healthcare. When I started my career, I carried a bag with 7 Oxford handbooks to help me figure out:
