MTBC Practice Management Quiz Sends Message to Doctors: There is Real Room for Improvement or a Need to Outsource
Date:10/13/2008

SOMERSET, N.J., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- During the Pri-Med New York conference at the Jacob K. Javits Center, primary care healthcare providers took a 20-question quiz prepared by MTBC, the innovative healthcare IT company based in Somerset, NJ. The quiz tested basic knowledge of medical billing, claims submission, reimbursement, EMR software, and healthcare administration.

The result: All but a handful scored less than 50%. The average number of correct answers was only 7.5. The top scorer correctly answered 13 out of 20--and won a free private tour on the MTBC airplane.

The participants consisted of more than 50 doctors and nurse practitioners throughout the metropolitan area -- employed at hospitals, government and corporate settings, and at private practices of varying sizes--representing a cross-section of primary healthcare.

"Despite their impact on the revenues and administration of a medical office, practice management essentials are not widely retained by physicians," said David Rosenblum, president of MTBC. "Most doctors simply don't have the time, nor the inclination, to immerse themselves in these rapidly evolving issues, as they choose to devote themselves to patient care."

Through its comprehensive medical billing service and web-based practice management system, MTBC relieves physicians and their staffs of time-intensive tasks and empowers them with vital, real-time management reports and tools.

"Many of the quiz participants shook their heads and groaned--most were not aware of future Medicare bonuses and increases, for example, much less the specific amounts," said Mr. Rosenblum. "If such awareness is absent in-house at a practice, it should be obtained through a cost-effective practice management company such as MTBC."
