After a rocky start, Meridian Weight Management Center discovered that denials are preventable and recoverable, after incorporating AdvancedRCM services and software into its office healthcare information technology infrastructure.
Founded by Dr. Andrea Goodwin and David Bonner, RN, CPT, Meridian Weight Management Center is dedicated to helping clients who desire a sustained weight loss, leading to a healthier life. The practice has grown very rapidly – with 10,000 patient visits per year – and partnered with Intouch Psychological Services to offer behavioral health services at its locations in Meridian and Philadelphia, MS. New primary care clinics are part of Meridian’s expansion plan.
When Meridian split its weight management and behavioral health practices into two separate businesses, the AdvancedMD software was “moldable” and easily accommodated the new business model – as well as a new office in Philadelphia – with no problems. Mr. Bonner has the same expectations for its primary care clinic opening in June 2018. Meridian now has 15 providers and a half-dozen administrative personnel, all of whom have embraced the AdvancedMD suite of solutions.
AdvancedMD is committed to helping independent medical practices accelerate their financial growth with comprehensive outsourced medical billing services. The AdvancedRCM services offer accurate, real-time financial visibility, technology and tools that increase collections, and a collaborative team to meet current and evolving needs. Increasing practice revenue is just one way that AdvancedMD empowers healthy practices and healthy patients.
