Dr. William W. Forgey

 
Physician streamlines claims processing & billing in private practice

This busy family practice has deep roots in the community it has served for more than three decades. Over the years, growing claims and billing complexity, increasingly complicated scheduling, and Dr. Forgey’s outside projects demanded an automated solution. The practice first implemented an outsourced service – a move that proved to be unacceptably expensive, inefficient, and frustrating to both staff and patients. A search for a cloud-based, highly sophisticated billing and scheduling solution (that would easily integrate with EHR in the near future) resulted in the selection of AdvancedMD. Claims, billing and scheduling now run at peak efficiency, patient satisfaction is up, and the practice is well positioned for easy migration to the AdvancedMD EHR solution. Dr. Forgey states, “The AdvancedMD system is an extremely big reason I’ve been able to pull off what I have over the past number of years.”

“With AdvancedMD we got everything in one package, and the ability to ensure that we get maximum allowable Medicaid reimbursement.”

Charlotte Kientzy
Practice billing manager

“[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.”
