    I worked for a Gastroenterology practice for 5 years. We used Medical Manager. I loved it! It was so user friendly.

    We use Medisoft. I am not too fond of this software. I find it very hard to read when looking back into patient account activity.

    Our Clinic currently uses Nextgen, it has the capability to do everything at once. From office visits, to billing and collections. Nextgen also has a great EMR they have developed,we are not there yet but are looking forward to this technology.

    Try www.advancedmd.com - It's a web based billing software package that has loads of great options and pricing availability. It saves you having to buy a license and hardware for a server-based system because they maintain the server for you. You can access your accounts from anywhere and it has program features that are comparative with any other billing software out there. It has customizable reporting, and 24/7 tech support. It also provides claim scrubbing software BEFORE it gets to the clearinghouses so you can catch mistakes much faster.

    This is coming from a hard-line Mysis program lover. I worked on Mysis back when they were called "Medic" and it was, and probably still is, the best performing billing program out there, including Medical Manager, which IMHO comes a close second. Mysis is a really great system, but it costs an arm, leg, your first born, and several grandchildren to own and operate.

    The main advantage of the web-based versions is the cost and convenience. Check out their web site and then if you're interested, you can contact Bryan Backenstoss at bryanb@advancedmd.com. Yes, he's a sales man, but he is a really nice guy who is more into you loving his product than a hard line sales approach. He can take you thru a step by step evaluation of the system and what it does.

    Good luck!!

    thank you--
    and i am wondering--do all these software programs that you purchase have a monthly fee you need to pay for submitting claims? we both assumed you could purchase a software program-put ithe info into the system press a button and off the claim goes-i no its more involved then that but we didnt think we would need to pay a monthly fee if we were doing our own billing.

    Default Monthly fees

    Most software do have a monthly maintenance fee. It would be in you best interest to pay for maintenance. There are many advanteges to this plan. Something could go wrong at any point. Unless someone on your staff is computer savy you will need to call for support. I make a point to watch whoever comes to my office and learn of to do minor repair issues. Sometime there are hourly rates to come to your office for some issues.

    In in terms of software for a small office, Medical Manager is a good one. If you have questions, do hesitate to contact me.

    I work for a large Internal med practice and we just started using Medent on Nov 1, 2007 and I must say we used Medical Manager for the past 10 years and after only 1 month I really love this system, their support team is wonderful and get back to you in a timely manner unlike medical manager ( sage software)

    If you have any questions about it feel free to email me privately.
