San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2009 -- Far removed from the brouha of Washington D.C. is business owner John Wahlquist of eMedicalSystems, Bremerton, Washington state. Author of his own medical billing software for over 17 years, Wahlquist recently made the unusual choice to retire his product and migrate his medical practices over to a new generation medical billing solution offered by MPMsoft.
"64 bit processing was looming up ahead and it would have been a total rewrite for us," says Wahlquist, "I looked at a lot of systems and companies before choosing MPM. They're ahead of the curve on practically every technology point needed by doctors today. It's a change that frees me up to focus on servicing my docs; I'm able to offer cutting edge products like never before."
"Doctors today are watching closely what is going on in Washington and are reluctant to invest significant amounts of money in technology until the dust settles. The discussion in Washington changes directions each week, so doctors are inclined to simply hold on to their old software systems. We demonstrate that the cost of upgrading now, to an open architected leading-edge solution is far more cost effective than waiting on the whims of Washington," says Wahlquist.
For instance, financial incentives for doctors to file prescriptions electronically went into effect January 1, 2009 and will start to decline after 2010, yet the majority of small practices haven't implemented ePrescribing. According to Medicare, each year patients experience as many as 530,000 adverse drug events due to negative interactions with other medication or lack of information about a patient's medical history. The e-prescribing initiative is predicted to save Medicare $156 million per year by avoiding adverse drug events.
"Our medical billing software enables e-prescribing with an easy to implement subscription service. This one item alone can justify doctors upgrading their software system sooner rather than later," says Wahlquist, "the time to implement is now."
An advanced medical billing software used by healthcare practices nationwide to manage their insurance claims and patient billing, MPMsoft provides a simple user interface that seamlessly integrates front office appointment scheduling with back office functions such as electronic billing, claims management, patient accounting, statements, and comprehensive financial reports. MPM's core billing technology is the engine that powers an increasing number of EMRs with the ability to process electronic medical claims, and its clearinghouse services transmit electronic claims to thousands of insurance payers.
