Center for Balanced Health

Practice Life


This busy two-office, ten-provider, multi-specialty practice faced the dilemma of growing profitably while still delivering the highest possible patient satisfaction. Dr. Keith Berkowitz, founder and medical director of the Center for Balanced Health, felt a totally paper-based system seriously hampered his vision, resulting in greatly extended outstanding reimbursement collection and long hours at the office finishing workflows. The AdvancedMD cloud system automated all key workflows, freeing staff to focus on patients and growth. The clinic now operates with one fewer FTE staff, collects reimbursements in a timely manner, and provides outstanding service to a highly demanding patient population. A seamlessly integrated EHR provided a simple migration path to total automation, with additional efficiency and lifestyle improvements.

“We have seen approximately a three-fold improvement on a month-to-month basis of increased collections using AdvancedMD technology as compared to our previous technology provider. That has really been a step-change improvement with respect to the economics of the company.”
