ATLANTA, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Galen Advisors, a leading provider of Revenue Cycle Management solutions for physicians, announced today record growth for the first half of 2010. Assaulted by rising costs, reduced reimbursements and political mandates, physicians are turning to Galen for billing expertise and automation of their revenue cycle.
Galen's new clients include a range of specialty practices such as Gastroenterology, Infectious Disease, Plastic Surgery, Reproductive Endocrinologists, and Obstetrics and Gynecology. Galen will help these practices capture lost revenue by automating and improving claims, appeals and reporting processes – freeing up more time for physicians and practice managers to focus on patient care.
"We were impressed by Galen's top-notch team and the results they have delivered to other practices," said practice manager Sue Skeens. "It's like having an additional employee with the ability to work 24/7."
"The ability to regain control over the revenue cycle has become a critical success factor for physicians," said Jere Pittner, Galen Advisors co-founder and CEO, "The changes in healthcare legislation still being debated in Congress are forcing physicians to take a closer look at the financial status of the practice. There is no room to leave revenue uncollected."
