MacPractice understands better billing. We've always built our software to be a powerful tool for revenue cycle management, eClaims, and simply making billing easier. A few years ago, we also launched MacPractice Business Services to help our clients thrive by giving them access to the most experienced, dedicated billing and coding professionals we've trained as experts in the MacPractice platform.
Along the way, our clients have found that the savings of outsourcing their medical or dental billing to our professional team often pays for the costs of hiring MacPractice Business Services. Better Billing with MacPractice Services can even save some practices in the long view. Every practice we work with saves when you consider the cost to hire a new employee is $4,129, not including benefits.
If you are a new general or specialty medical or dental practice just getting started, you know there are plenty of costs to getting launched. Even established practices are regularly using financing for some aspects of their business for good reasons. For example, it's difficult to predict the financial needs that can suddenly arise when operating any healthcare organization, let alone a small to mid-sized practice. Equipment can break, employees can quit, and unfortunately, the pandemic hit medical and dental establishments incredibly hard.
MacPractice is proud to announce that our new financing program through North Star Leasing Company is now live. Practices interested in obtaining financing for their software may visit MacPractice.com and click "Apply for Financing" to apply for the program online.
Many practices use third-party billing services to help them scale immediate trouble through treacherous billing waters. Unfortunately, even a temporary staffing shortage could create an Accounts Receivable setback for your practice. Short term services (usually less than six months) are perfect for assisting practices to overcome a temporary billing problem before it escalates to a crisis. With flexible plans and competitive pricing, many offices also consult MacPractice Business Services to prepare for staff medical leave, vacations, or even better billing management.
Just as it has shifted priorities for patients and practices, the pandemic has changed a lot about healthcare, particularly when it comes to the technology that practices depend on. More practices than ever find themselves adopting new technology. However, adopting technology and adapting to it as a practice isn't necessarily a synchronized experience. The future of practice technology is in finding the right fit and investing in technology companies that truly partner with practices. A recent survey by IDG found that healthcare IT leaders are developing strategies to invest in areas critical to small to mid-sized practices—security, productivity, and patient experience.
If you've been referred to MacPractice by a colleague, you may have learned why the doctor that referred you relies on our software to run their practice. Referrals can be powerful motivators because the doctor that suggested our software to you probably knows enough about your practice to make that recommendation based on your day-to-day operations.
