Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Ensuring the continuing success of a medical practice with the breadth and depth of ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA), whose 130+ otolaryngologists and allergists and 80 licensed audiologists superbly serve the needs of over 60,000 patients every month, takes the combined skill sets of a best-in-class senior management team working in concert with each other and the physicians whom they assist.
That’s why ENTA is proud to announce that, January 28, 2013, Sue Gillies is joining ENTA as Director of Central Billing Operations.
Ms. Gillies brings unique qualifications to the organization. She joins ENTA after 10 years at Crystal Run Healthcare, LLP – a 200+ physician multi specialty group practice located in Middletown, NY. Ms. Gillies served as Director of Patient Accounts, where her key performance measures continually surpassed industry standards. Similar to ENTA, Crystal Run also utilizes the Nextgen Billing/EMR platform; Ms Gillies brings that expertise with her.
Prior to that position, Sue was a Billing Supervisor with Bon Secours Charity Healthcare System in Suffern, NY where she supervised 3 hospitals, 2 renal dialysis centers, 2 rehab centers, and 2 clinics. This followed 12 years of service as the Billing Supervisor for St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick, NY. As a certified professional coder, Sue is an active member in the AAPC as well as the Hudson Valley Chapter of the HFMA.
Arthur Schwacke, CFO of ENT and Allergy Associates and the person to whom Sue will directly report, was enthusiastic as he noted “Sue Gillies has the track record, credentials and accolades to not only maintain the superior level of billing success that we currently enjoy, but to set a new standard with her demonstrated expertise in Revenue Cycle Management.”
Added Robert Glazer, ENTA CEO, “The demands of a changing healthcare environment and complicated insurance climate require sophisticated business solutions. ENTA has invested significant dollars in technology, workflow systems and staff to deliver one of the premier back office collection departments in the nation. In 2013 we will be investing further with upgraded billing/collection/ EMR software, enhanced webportals and waiting room kiosks… all geared to help our patients through this evolving insurance environment. We believe that Sue will not only be an excellent Director of our billing operation, but as importantly, will quickly begin to work seamlessly with the other members of my extraordinary senior management team.”
Wayne Eisman, MD , President of ENTA noted "For the physicians at ENTA, we can focus our attention on providing superior medical care knowing that the business side is being handled with 21st century technology and first rate staff. Ms. Gillies brings significant work experience to our practice and will enhance our ability to operate efficiently."
