Online PR News – 03-February-2011 – – WorkSmart MD announced today plans to expand itsâ€™ podiatry medical billing and EMR services throughout the United States. The company reports it plans to hire additional Certified Professional Coders and will be making investments in its Information Technology along with strategic acquisitions of competitors.
â€śThere are approximately 9,720 podiatrists in the United States serving over 600 million feet. Thatâ€™s 1 podiatrist for every 32,000 Americans. Thereâ€™s simply no room for inefficiency. We have a proven track record of increasing the bottom line for podiatrists and we plan on helping more of them.â€ť reports Jason Frederick, VP of Business Development.
Podiatrists are suffering from the same decreasing reimbursements affecting most physicians along with the most complicated rules for getting paid by insurances. In addition, podiatrists are expected to adopt electronic medical records by 2015 or face decreases in their Medicare reimbursements. WorkSmart MD reports it has developed a turn-key program to help podiatry practices adopt electronic medical records while bringing more dollars than ever before into the practice.
â€śOur model is straight forward and simple. We supply our network of podiatrists with state-of-the-art certified electronic medical records, e-prescribing, all medical billing and clearinghouse services, practice management software and experts to help them maximize itsâ€™ potential. All for a cost that equates to sales tax. The net result is 10-15% more cash flow, faster reimbursement, and up to $44,000 in Medicare incentives for the practice.â€ť reports David B. VanderVoort, VP Sales & Marketing. â€śJust through WorkSmart MDâ€™s automations in our EMR we expect a six-figure increase in production this yearâ€ť comments Dr. P. Felton of Maryland.
