CollaborateMD's New Cloud Medical Billing Version 8.5 Update Introduces Central Business Intelligence with a Customizable Report Builder

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CollaborateMD (CMD), a leading provider of easy and affordable cloud Medical Billing Software and Practice Management Software announced today information on their upcoming 8.5 version. The new release is free to all existing customers and will contain a Central Business Intelligence (CBI) area inside the application.

The Central Business Intelligence (CBI) area will be the foundation for allowing users to retrieve the data they need, how they need it, and when they need it. In 8.5 the CBI will contain a Report Viewer and Report Builder. The Report Builder allows users to copy any of the current 100+ report templates and modify them with the ease of drag-and-drop fields, filters, grouping, and charting. Providing the user with the capability to modify report templates on their own will allow them to visualize, analyze, and report on their data in minutes.

Additionally, the Report Builder allows users to create their own report from scratch by selecting fields, filters, and grouping. Users can add numerous types of charts to their reports with a few clicks of a button. Allowing users to create and modify their own reports provides individual customization for each user, without sacrificing the needs of other users.

"After researching numerous third party reporting vendors, we came to the conclusion that there was no one solution that met all of our requirements and the needs of our customers," stated Douglas Kegler, CEO of CollaborateMD. "We took on the project internally and have created our next generation reporting tool that will provide each of our users with business intelligence to visualize, analyze and report on their data in a business centric fashion."

Extra features include the sharing of report templates with other users within the account, expandable/collapsible report grouping, exporting reports, and hyperlinks to open patients or claims directly from the report.

The medical office software version 8.5 also includes enhancements in: batch patient eligibility, expanded alert management, enhancement patient receipts, and two dozen user requested innovative ideas from CMD's crowd sourcing platform.
