Dear valued client:
Once again, this year has flown by too quickly. I feel privileged to be writing this message as the CEO of AdvancedMD. It has been a rewarding year and this is a special time in our company’s history, as we celebrate a major milestone of passing the $100M revenue run rate. We’re very proud of this achievement, but realize we couldn’t have attained it without you. It’s incredible to see such growth, with more than 26,000 clients among 8,600 practices and 600 medical billing companies. I sincerely thank you for your loyalty, input and support.
This year, our all-in-one cloud suite of products has allowed many of our clients to achieve remarkable outcomes. These clients are managing higher patient volumes, improving productivity and financial outcomes, and experiencing a revolutionary new practice experience. Our suite of products is the only independent practice automation technology that focuses as much on the practice as it does on your patients.
In the coming year, we will continue to focus on you, your patients and the health of your practice, by heavily investing in our infrastructure, developing new products, providing more personalized training, building a user community, hiring the best talent and creating valuable partnerships. I’m incredibly excited and truly believe the best is yet to come. 2018 will start off with a bang as we announce a newly updated product designed to help you prepare for your most rewarding year yet.
The holidays are a time for family, friends and celebrations, and a time to give thanks for all we have. I’m most thankful for the lasting relationships we make each day at AdvancedMD and the opportunity to help you remain independent. We have many amazing clients and I appreciate your continued support and dedication to making AdvancedMD great. I want to congratulate the recipients of this year’s Innovator of the Year award.
I invite you to share this newsletter with everyone in your practice. From our family to yours, we wish you a happy holiday and a prosperous New Year.
