INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Zotec Partners, an industry leader in medical billing, practice management and Radiology Information Systems software and services, announces today that Overlake Imaging Associates, PC, a sub-specialist radiology practice based in Bellevue, Wash., and consulting practice for patients of Overlake Hospital Medical Center, has selected the company as its outsourced billing provider.
In July 2011, OIA sold its share of a joint venture imaging center to OHMC. OIA continues to be the contracted practice providing professional diagnostic reading services to OHMC, and as such, has to have its own solution for radiology billing. The group initially considered performing its own billing, and searched for a licensed billing software product for that purpose. Following a rigorous evaluation of software and discussions with Zotec Partners and other billing companies, OIA decided to take advantage of the industry-leading combination of people, processes and technology offered by Zotec Partners, and negotiated a contract to outsource its revenue cycle management.
“Once we decided on an outsourced solution, we looked for industry-leading software and front-running radiology revenue cycle management expertise,” said Dr. Mark Pfleger, president of Overlake Imaging Associates, PC. “Zotec Partners’ client references and experience in the Seattle area made bringing them on as our billing services provider an easy decision. The depth of the company’s radiology revenue cycle management expertise was something we could not replicate on our own, and neither could another billing services provider.”
Overlake Hospital Medical Center is a nonprofit regional medical center offering a full range of advanced medical services to the Puget Sound region. It contracts with OIA’s team of sub-specialist radiologists to offer a wide range of interpretative imaging services. Through the radiology practice and medical center’s relationship, patients have access to the most advanced diagnostic imaging and screening technologies available.
“As the dual impacts of decreasing physician reimbursement and the rising number of consumer-driven, high-deductible health insurance plans lead to mounting pressures in the marketplace, radiologists need a consistent and cost effective billing solution they can trust,” said T. Scott Law, president and CEO of Zotec Partners. “Our proven track record of success with sub-specialist radiology practices assures that OIA will ultimately garner every collectible dollar at a lower cost of billing.”
