Marlboro, NJ (PRWEB) February 1, 2006
Dr. Glenn W. Laub, the founder and Chairman of the Cardiothoracic Surgery Department at St. Francis Medical Center in New Jersey, has seen his department’s monthly collections increase by 19% since engaging Affinity Billing. “They are specialists,” he says, “Affinity Billing understands the world of medical billing and every step of their process is optimized. They’ve added real value to our practice. Today, our assistants spend less time on overhead and more time with patients.”
Dr. Laub's is not the only practice reaping the benefits of Affinity Billing's unique approach to the tedious and intricate medical billing process. Doctors who do their own billing know just how big a chore the process can be. Trained experts are hard to find, and cultivating new talent is arduous and expensive. Since billing takes a backseat to patient care, work can be sporadic, inconsistent, and unreliable. Affinity Billing uses advanced technology to overcome these challenges.
Erez Lirov, Chief Operating Officer of Affinity Billing, says clients regularly see their monthly collections increase by 10% to 35% and A/R beyond 120 days drop from 30% to below 5%. "With a traditional billing process," he says, "there's just no way to get these results."
