Hello! I coordinate our medical front office program and teach medical office procedures and billing classes at our community college. My purpose in joining this group is to continue to learn. . .so I can continue to bring "real life" into my classroom.

Figured I would throw my hat in here.
I have been working on the technical side of medical billing for about 8 years now.

Currently working for a medium sized billing company maintaining the in-house system.
I see a lot of folks here have a lot of good info, especially for a guy like me that has
to figure a lot of this out.

Welcome LS.

Do you care to share where you are, name of the system/software you maintain, and whether it is based on Windows SQL Server or some proprietary code?

I'd be curious too as to why you would call yourself any kind of "servant"?

The name has just stuck with me for 20 years or so.
It's from my old game playing days... long story.

I am trying to figure out how much I can share because the nature of what I do and just how competitive it is.

As far as the software.. it can use a number of backends but the two most likely backends would be MySQL or MSSQL.
It's possible to use Pervasive or Oracle but it would require some additional modification.
There are a lot of MySQL specific UDFs but they are not impossible to move to MSSQL.

The software itself is totally proprietary with the exception of some commercial libraries. (controls, etc)

As far as the name of the system, I gave it a name but it actually did not have one.
People referred to it as "the system" and I hated that.
When I took it over I had to name the thing.... :)
"The system" seemed so 1984.

You said what it could use as a backend.  I'm curious what it actually does use as a backend.  In the near future I will have some questions about tying an Access front end to a MS SQL Server back end.  I'm just trying to figure out whether I can make a mental note that you might be a resource to turn to if needed.

Based on your response, I assume proprietary does not mean a commercially-available package such as Office Ally, AthenaHealth, Epic, Kareo, Allscripts, e-MDS, etc.

Can you tell us what part of the country you are locate in?

I am in the southeast.
The applications are currently using MySQL as a backend.

And yes, proprietary as in it's developed in house.
I am the lead developer and there are 2 of us that work on the application.

It's specifically for EMS.

Thanks for the info.  And, again, welcome.

I invite you to join the conversation at the following link if/when you have any interest.  At Page 2 of this link, Billergirlnyc picks up on my comment.  I talk about needing an HL7 interface.  But for those systems using SQL as a back end, the front end can be tied directly to it without needing an HL7 interface.  You no doubt know more about that than I, so any comments are welcome.

Hey guys!

I've been working in the field of medical billing and coding for the past 3 - 4 years now.  From the very beginning, I aspired to start my own business but at the suggestion of a few teachers and supervisors I gained significant experience in the field.  Now I'm making the big step into building my own business, first from home, and idealistically expanding.  I hope with your help, on the forums as well as from the guides from medicalbillinglive, that I can achieve my dream of a successful business. 



...this is very scary for me but I'm trying to stay strong.


Thanks!
