One of the primary challenges faced by nonprofits in this endeavor is the adoption of a system that supports their distinctive processes and structures. While several systems are available, many are designed for healthcare and may not seamlessly fit these unique requirements. Overcoming this challenge necessitates an investment in a user-friendly system that streamlines service documentation and facilitates the generation of accurate billing codes.
