Medical executives share their mind set as they contemplate outsourcing medical billing and the key qualifications needed in a medical billing partner.

Encoda LLC, a leading healthcare reimbursement automation and technology enabled revenue cycle management software and services company announced today that two of its clients, Greg Meadows, Chief Executive Officer at United Skin Specialists, and Dr. Michael Sherman, Ophthalmologist and owner of Physician Eye Care Associates of Garden City, will be featured in a panel discussion titled, “The decision to outsource medical billing and what to look for in a billing partner”.

In this peer-to-peer discussion panel, Nextech clients will discuss important criteria physicians and executives should consider when contemplating a move from in-house billing to an outsourced arrangement with a professional medical billing company.  The panelists will discuss their experience making the transition, including what they discovered about their in-house billing, the challenges they faced, their consideration of the pros and cons of an outsourced arrangement, and the benefits they’ve recognized once the transition was made.  This session will also provide tips on what to consider when evaluating billing companies, including the use of web-based software to maintain important visibility into the billing cycle, keeping informed and in control at all times.

“We are excited to participate in the Nextech EDGE user conference once again”, said Michael Kallish, Encoda’s Chief Executive Officer.  “We have enjoyed our partnership with Nextech over the past two years, helping many Nextech clients increase their revenue with our patented BackOffice and Maestro Analytics software integrated with their Nextech platform”.  Kallish went on to say, “we are featuring Mr. Greg Meadows and Dr. Michael Sherman so that Nextech clients can hear firsthand, what goes into making this very important decision about medical billing”. Kallish concluded, “It’s not a decision to be taken lightly. Both of these clients experienced significant revenue cycle challenges prior to making the decision to partner with Encoda, and likely other Nextech clients are facing similar challenges. It will be helpful for them to hear what both Greg and Dr. Sherman have to say”.
