Medorizon has been operating in the Chicagoland area for the past 25 years, Tim Tobin, CEO, “We have used this product for both facility and professional billing for the past seven years, Encoder Pro has helped us stay compliant and current with our client’s coding needs. This product has helped us understand new specialties and explains in layman’s term how to break down the code sets.” Medorizon plans to expand services to all clients through out the United States by the end of the year. Along with this practice enhancement they will offer the Practice Management and Electronic Medical Record and Patient Portal all powered by Optum.

With all the changes in the future of healthcare and the mandated ICD-10 it is expected to cost a practice up to 30% of time and resources to implement changes and training. Keith Tobin, VP of Sales “…this is a must have for our industry, if you don’t have a coding tool in your office you could be extending the life of your claims. Medorizon has certified coders on staff but with the never ending changes with code sets it is difficult to keep up with all the changes. We use Encoder Pro to reduce time in accounts receivable and maximize our client’s revenue. Medorizon is excited to extend this service and others to providers so they can focus on healthcare.” Optum has a family of services and is backed by real customer support that can help 24/7. Medorizon is proud to enhance their practice with Optum Encoder Pro.

Medorizon has grown to a 60-employee organization that manages the billing and collection process for over 400 providers throughout the United States. As October, 2014 approaches for ICD-10 implementation, Medorizon will be offering webinars which will help all aspects of the medical practice prepare for ICD-10 from the front office staff to advanced clinicians.
