Back in the mid-90s, a small, home-based reseller of medical billing software emerged marketing practice management solutions to provider clients. The founder was a seasoned medical office manager who understood firsthand the nuances of medical practice workflow and how impactful automation could be on collections outcomes for independent provider groups.

It wasn’t long before significant inadequacies in the existing software became apparent. So in 1999, this one-time practice manager teamed with a couple of technology specialists and launched into software development. The goal was to build a best-in-class billing solution for the medical field. And that they did. Within a year, they combined critical workflow knowledge with a never-seen-before, web-based platform to streamline processes and optimize the revenue cycle without on-site servers and time-consuming installs. By early 2000, AdvancedMD was born.

Today, AdvancedMD has over 20 years’ experience unifying workflow and integrating healthcare systems with cloud solutions. We’ve expanded proven software development competencies to support comprehensive practice management, electronic health records, patient engagement, and business reporting/analytics processes. More than ever, we’re committed to helping practice and billing clients realize superior business outcomes while providing best-in-class patient care.

“[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.”
