Rocky Mountain Urgent Care & Family Medicine Experiences 8-9% Increase in Cash Flow with Orion HealthCorp
DENVER, Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent study by the Urgent Care Association of America, there are approximately 9,000 urgent care centers across the country that see, on average, 342 patients a day. That number is expected to rise steadily as urgent care practices continue to play a more dominant role in improving the access to and lowering the costs of healthcare in the United States. That increasing number of patients per day, coupled with new legislative mandates, stringent compliance laws, and complex insurance regulations make a strong medical billing and practice management partner essential for today's urgent care practices.
Rocky Mountain Urgent Care & Family Medicine in the Denver/Boulder metropolitan area is managing growth successfully by partnering with Orion HealthCorp, Inc., a leader in medical billing and practice management for more than 20 years. Since contracting with Orion, Rocky Mountain controller and CFO, Toni Long cites an increase of 8-9 percent in cash flow.
"We are a well-oiled machine now," said Long. "We've seen an increase in our cash flow, and I know Orion has played a large part in making that happen."
Orion currently handles billing for Rocky Mountain's family practice, urgent care, psychological counseling, physical therapy, and occupational medicine service lines. Through Orion's proprietary Business Intelligence (BI) solution, Osmium(SM), the practice is able to view real-time key performance reports on billing and collection status, examine the amount of cash collected by provider, and check the status of reconciliations. Comprehensive billing management and reporting transparency are key differentiators according to Long.
"Orion has made an enormous contribution with their expertise in the requirements for billing for the unique services we provide," continued Long. "They keep an eye on us, and we have the confidence of knowing we are in compliance. They help us manage the complexity of it all. We have different patient logs for each line of business, which increases our challenge to stay timely and accurate when it comes to billing. Orion is very flexible and adaptable, and that helps us move forward in the directions we want to grow."
