Join us for three fast-paced hours with information you can put into place that can improve your bottom line in 90 days.

Topics Covered
  • Key Financial Performance Indicators
  • Best Billing Practices Assessments

Founded by a practicing physician and his patient, a successful software entrepreneur, our company, Modernizing Medicine, took a dramatically different approach to developing our electronic health records (EHR) systems. We hired doctors and taught them how to code. The result is highly custom software specifically designed for the needs of each specialty. With the help of our doctors who code, our platforms are built for speed and efficiency
