We were very impressed with the ADVOCATE Management Team and their focused view on technology in the radiology RCM process.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
ADVOCATE, the premier provider of radiology revenue cycle management services nationwide, announces today that they have been awarded the exclusive billing agreement with Fort Wayne Radiology (FWRadiology) in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
ADVOCATE will deliver a full range of billing services encompassing their proprietary suite of billing process software functionality called Experience Based Technology (EBT). EBT improves radiology billing and data quality consistency by ensuring a timely, accurate, and consistent workflow which results in consistently higher revenue.
FWRadiology will also benefit from AIMS (ADVOCATE Information Management System). AIMS is a comprehensive business intelligence tool that provides real time monitoring of every step of the billing process all day, every day. AIMS displays key performance benchmarks for all aspects of the billing process, comparing budgeted productivity and collections, and delivering transparent revenue optimization. AIMS can even correct variations on the fly, ensuring consistent revenue for radiology practices.
“Outsourcing our billing operations from internal billing was a difficult decision for FWRadiology,” said Joe Wolfcale, FWRadiology CEO. “Over the course of a year, we evaluated several software vendors and billing companies. After several site visits and consulting with references from various billing firms, ADVOCATE was the clear choice to handle our billing operations. We were very impressed with the ADVOCATE Management Team and their focused view on technology in the radiology RCM process.”
“ADVOCATE’s exclusivity in working with radiology groups nationwide was very important to us,” said Thomas Sarosi, M.D., President of FWRadiology. “We look forward to a long term relationship in the years ahead with them.”
FWRadiology was founded in 1950 by Drs. Richard Datzman and Jack Loudermilk. True pioneers in the medical field, these physicians initiated the tradition of utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and delivering top quality services to their customers, including being the first group in Indiana to provide diagnostic services to numerous outlying facilities.
FWRadiology serves physician offices, universities, occupational health facilities and hospitals. They also operate and provide radiology services for their own MRI, Mammography, PET Imaging and Laser Vein Treatment facilities.
“We are very excited to have FWRadiology as part of the ADVOCATE family,” said Kirk Reinitz, President/CEO of ADVOCATE. “FWRadiology is a fast growing group and we look forward to a long term, win-win relationship in the years ahead.”
