The Calm After the Storm

Medical Billing

When hurricanes hit, cloud-based and mobile platforms like AdvancedMD Rhythm enable medical groups to maintain provision of services.

On August 25, 2017, a monster hurricane, Harvey, made landfall on the central Texas coast. The epic storm crippled hundreds of square miles, leading to a widespread loss of electricity and water services. Less than a week later, Hurricane Irma formed as the most intense Atlantic Hurricane since Katrina in 2005. Extreme winds and storm surges left more than one million homes in Florida without power, an all-too-familiar occurrence for the state that had been hit brutally by Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew just last year.

As these disasters ran their course and residents required medical care, physicians desperately tried to meet that demand. Read what happened next in the AMGA publication, Group Practice Journal.

For nearly 20 years AdvancedMD cloud medical office software has been instrumental in helping physicians build effective disaster recovery plans and continue to practice virtually during and after in ways that don’t require adding complexity and high cost to mitigating the risk of data loss. Download our condensed 3-page eGuide entitled Build a Disaster Recovery Plan and learn the five FAQs about disaster recovery.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[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.”
