Eastern Healthcare Financial Services


Who is EHFS?

Eastern Healthcare Financial Services (EHFS) was established in 1998 by Jo Achutuni, a one-time supervisor for United Healthcare’s claims department in the DC-Maryland-Virginia market. Jo leveraged her experience, knowledge, and entrepreneurial mindset to form EHFS and develop solutions that address the evolving roadblocks between insurance payors and independent healthcare practices. EHFS is a multi-specialty revenue cycle management firm servicing customers on the east coast, in the mid-west, and on the west coast from its Maryland and Florida offices.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
