Pulse Systems Offers Free Medical Billing and Collections Assessment for Physician Practices

WICHITA, Kan., Oct. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) solutions, announced today it is offering a free financial assessment to help physician practices analyze how their current medical billing and collections performance compares to industry best practices so they can collect more of the money they earn faster.

According to the 2013 Black Book™ Top Practice Management & Revenue Cycle Management EHR Software Vendors report, 87 percent of all physician practices agree that their billing and collections systems/processes need upgrading, and 71 percent of physician practices are considering a combination of new software and outsourcing services to improve their billing systems.

The free financial assessment from Pulse compares the number of days that it currently takes a practice to bill and collect, using the practice's recent billing and collections data, and compares an individual practice's performance to industry norms, by medical specialty. Pulse then provides these enlightening reports to participating physician practices free of charge.

"Pulse is offering this complimentary financial assessment to give physicians a straightforward evaluation of their potential cash flows to determine if they are meeting or beating industry standards for medical billing and collections for their particular specialty," said Greg Vap, Senior Vice President of Sales for Pulse Systems. "It is our goal to educate physicians to make the best financial choices for their practices, and with the majority of physician practices expecting declining profitability due to decreasing reimbursements and inefficient billing and records technology, having the right revenue partner in place is more important than ever."

Pulse RCM supports the financial functions of physician practices with results-focused, certified professional coders and billing and collections experts. Clients receive optimal billing rates and first-time claim acceptance rates averaging over 98 percent due to Pulse's comprehensive claims scrubbing rules. With Pulse's RCM solution, there are no start-up costs, no software licensing fees, no hardware or server investments and no ongoing maintenance or software upgrade fees. Pulse RCM's cost-sharing model aligns with the success of the practice.
