DALLAS, Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aprima Medical Software announced today the acquisition of Health Care Strategies (HCS), a leading provider of Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) services to physician offices throughout the U.S. HCS has consistently achieved significant gains in receivables collection rates and days sales outstanding (DSO) for their customers.

Covington Cardiology in Louisiana saw a greater than 200% increase in collections with the service. "Choosing AprimaRCM is the best decision we ever made," says Stacy Perez, practice manager. "Every month, our collections just go up and up."

Margaret White and her team bring tremendous expertise in billing for physician practices of all sizes and a wide range of specialties, as well as remarkable skill in customer service. The acquisition is a natural extension of our long-term partnership. We believe that by formally combining our offerings, we will be able to leverage our technical expertise and provide an enhanced business solution to our customers. We're very excited to have HCS officially become part of the Aprima organization."

"Becoming part of Aprima will benefit both organizations and all of our customers, as we'll be able to make the most of both companies' complementary strengths."
