With 60 radiologists, Diversified Radiology is one of the nation's largest radiology practices and provides interpretive services to 12 statewide hospitals, 10 imaging centers - four of which they own - and additional support to several free-standing medical office sites in Denver. Diversified Radiology has been an AMICAS customer for nearly 30 years.
"We are excited about continuing our longstanding partnership with AMICAS," said Chris "Kip" McMillan, chief executive officer at Diversified Radiology. "AMICAS has been in the business of providing solutions for revenue cycle management for a long time. Given AMICAS' longevity in the industry, their exciting new technology, and our long history as partners, this was a natural decision.
"I know first-hand how difficult it is to extract data from various databases and share that information with the leadership of our practice. AMICAS' solutions allow our practice to streamline our billing processes and provide leadership with superior insight into our overall operations," said Mr. McMillan.
Under the terms of the agreement, Diversified Radiology will utilize AMICAS' solutions for streamlining billing operations and enabling business intelligence. Included in the partnership deal are AMICAS Financials(TM), AMICAS Dashboards(TM), and claims processing capabilities.
AMICAS Financials, a Windows-based solution, provides CashFinder Worklists(TM) to automate the identification and management of denials and follow-up workflows. AMICAS Dashboards, a Web-based business intelligence platform, provides access to customized, near real time, easy-to-read data for key performance metrics and indicators, including both clinical and operational factors.
"We are very excited about deepening our partnership with Diversified Radiology, one of the largest and most respected radiology groups in the country," said Stephen Kahane MD, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of AMICAS. "We look forward to helping Diversified Radiology become even more efficient with their billing. Also, given Mr. McMillan's depth of knowledge about revenue cycle management software solutions, we welcome his perspective as we continue to improve AMICAS Financials and our other solutions."
