Practice Management Associates Selects AdvancedMD Platform for Revenue Cycle Management

Cloud technology provides claims management and collections, reporting, and workflow capabilities that distinguish RCM consultancy from traditional billing services

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (September 14, 2011)HBMA Fall Annual Conference 2011,  Las Vegas, Booth # 315 — ADP® AdvancedMD, a leader in all-in-one, cloud electronic health record (EHR), practice managementmedical scheduling software, and billing applications for medical practices and medical billing services, today announced that Practice Management Associates LLC, based in Virginia, has selected the ADP AdvancedMD practice management software to support the company’s emergency department revenue cycle management (RCM) business.

Practice Management Associates, LLC’s founder, Dr. Brian Clare, is a former emergency physician who founded the company in 2001 because he saw a need for a better billing company than those he encountered while practicing medicine. “I founded the company with a mission to provide better RCM services to my fellow physicians, but I knew I would need to deploy the best technology available in order to be efficient and effective. I tried several software technologies during the first 10 years of the business, but with our recent adoption of ADP AdvancedMD, we’ve seen an improvement in our profit margin and in the flexibility we can offer our customers.”

“We switched to ADP AdvancedMD because our previous software didn’t provide the agility to accommodate the specific needs of emergency medicine practices,” explains Sam Jones, PMA’s chief operating officer. “We considered a variety of different alternatives and looked extensively at different platforms. It became clear through our analysis that ADP AdvancedMD was our best alternative, but I was still very concerned about changing software. We manage millions of dollars in claims each and every week, so the possibility of something going wrong in a conversion was daunting. Nevertheless, we pushed ahead without missing a beat and our performance has improved just as we had hoped.”

“ADP AdvancedMD is honored to be a trusted partner to PMA, which is taking medical practice optimization to a new level for emergency medicine,” said Raul Villar, president, ADP AdvancedMD. “ER doctors using PMA and ADP AdvancedMD can capture more revenue faster and optimize their operations, even with the administrative support constraints common to their specialty.”

“[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.”
