Winston-Salem, N.C. (PRWEB) January 21, 2009 -- Two national healthcare companies, MTBC and Computer Credit, Inc. (CCI) have partnered to improve and accelerate collections for hospitals and private healthcare practices. Through the integration of the companies' respective platforms, clients of MTBC's Premium Plan will be eligible to receive CCI's MD-Collect service at no charge.
Through innovation, the companies have designed a proprietary account flow that increases revenues and simplifies receivables management while protecting the patient-provider relationship. The jointly designed application service provider (ASP) features a secure, user-friendly web portal allowing practices to access account status and collections activity 24/7.
"The commitment to improve the revenue cycle for healthcare is a top priority for each of our companies and bridges our hospital and physician client bases with an optimum solution," said Beth Barksdale, chief executive officer of Computer Credit, Inc. and MD-Collect.
"We're so pleased to forge this partnership with CCI, which has a stellar track record of 36 years in serving hospitals and physicians," said David Rosenblum, president of MTBC. "This service builds on our mission to provide technology-driven processes that improve the profitability of our clients at no cost to them."
MD-Collect features telephony services and professional correspondence that resolve patient accounts. Through extensive modeling, MD-Collect benefits practices by standardizing account flows that are too often neglected--in a courteous manner that patients appreciate.
"We've partnered with MTBC to provide a disciplined collection effort for practice managers that simplifies the payment process and is very easy to use," adds Barksdale. "We're excited about the roll out of a comprehensive collection strategy and the additional payment options available to patients."
"As a billing company, it's our responsibility to introduce our clients to services that positively impact their bottom lines," Rosenblum said. "Our seamless web-based integration will make MD-Collect an effortless but invaluable tool."
MTBC will conduct a gradual roll-out of MD-Collect, monitoring criteria and performance, as it adds the service to its Premium Plan, a comprehensive medical billing package that requires no hardware or software purchase, and maximizes client revenue and time management. Additional features include electronic prescribing for which practices can receive a 2 percent bonus from Medicare, online patient scheduling, automated appointment reminder phone calls, and free integrated electronic medical record (EMR) software.
