“Outsourcing our internal billing operation was a very big decision for us. There were many reasons we held to our historical, internal billing, business plan over the years. However, as the industry has changed, we needed to update our business model to take advantage of the most cost effective way to maximize the reimbursement for our services”, said Rob Hardin, CEO of Doctors Imaging Group.
“ADVOCATE represented everything we needed to equip the practice to meet the changes of a rapidly changing healthcare environment. With ADVOCATE as our business partner, we are confident that we are now properly equipped to face the challenges of the future”, said Jong Kim, M.D. President of Doctors Imaging Group.
Doctors Imaging Group is a physician owned radiology practice with outpatient imaging centers in Gainesville and Palatka Florida. Over the past 30 years, the radiologists of Doctors Imaging Group have brought state of the art imaging services to patients in north central Florida. Their radiologists are all board certified physicians, with many specialized in women's studies, musculoskeletal studies, body imaging, neuroradiololgy, vascular and interventional radiology and diagnostic and therapeutic spine and joint procedures.
“Imaging reimbursement continues to come under downward pressure from the government, with CPT code consolidation, RVU value re-evaluation and general cuts in reimbursement. ADVOCATE's advanced service, reporting and practice integration are known to incorporate solutions to address the most significant obstacles associated with operating private radiology groups. Our technology and management solutions maximize efficiency and revenue to help groups be more profitable today and position them for the future of healthcare”, said Kirk Reinitz, President and CEO of ADVOCATE.
