Financial Solution Streamlines Radiology Billing

February 18, 2010 — An image and information management solutions company today announced that it has signed 55 contracts for its radiology billing solution.

“Radiology practices around the country are facing increasing pressure to deliver excellent patient care, while making the most of scarce resources — in particular, within their billing departments,” said Paul Merrild, senior vice president of marketing and business development at AMICAS.

AMICAS Financials combines a modern .NET infrastructure with pioneering functionality to streamline the latest techniques for advanced radiology billing, which increases staff productivity, cash flow and patient satisfaction. AMICAS Financials helps practices reduce denials while minimizing costs, streamlining operations and assisting with compliance requirements.

Radiology Alliance, Nashville, Tenn., and Radiology Business Management Inc. of Kingwood, Texas are two practices that are currently using AMICAS Financials for advanced radiology billing.

“While the old, character-based systems might have worked well in the past, our practice realized that change was necessary to keep ahead of the economic pressures our practice was feeling,” said Keith Radecic, chief executive officer of Radiology Alliance. “With this [solution], our staff can be much more efficient — and that translates into a more efficient billing operation and quicker payment cycles for our practice.”

"We are excited about the market’s response to AMICAS Financials,” said Merrild.

The company has more than 30 years of experience in revenue cycle management and its systems process more than 100 million annual radiology billing transactions.
