Getting a new software is a big step and people should know the facts which I've stated including the information about Jeff Ward which is completely accurate even though so you said it is not. 

I agree with you on this one.  I don't ever want someone to purchase a software that won't work for them so that I can make a buck.  If you go back and look at many posts on this forum you will see many softwares recommended and not one being pushed.  Purchasing software is similar to purchasing a house, you have to live with it and usually for a long time. 

We have always tried to create a forum where all can speak their mind and state their opinion.  We do try to keep it civil though.   This is a totally free forum but we do offer our products and links to our affiliates.  I don't have any problem with you speaking your mind and stating what you feel are to be facts.   Others are also free to state their opinions and what they believe to be the facts as well.

I was one of the Beta testers for NowMD and I can tell you that the programmers and the tech people know what they're doing. They have all been in the business for years and are very receptive to improving making good solid changes and growing their program. I have no vested interest in this program at all. I think it's worth a look if you're looking for a new program or starting your business. I wouldn't discount a program just because Jeff changed direction for a while he has other people involved that I think very highly of that I've worked with for 16 years behind him with no breaks in the medical billing industry.
JMO you can't buy experience and dedication.

And people forget in business when you leave a big company, start your own and develop your own product there are non-competes and contracts in place with time limits on how long until they can get their product underway.

Anybody have any updates on new features, or planned features, for either NowMD or TotalMD?  Or any word on how either product is doing?  I notice both companies are on E. Baseline Road in Mesa/Gilbert, AZ, not too far from each other.  Since some in this thread know at least Jeff Ward of NowMD, does anybody know if the companies are in any way affiliated with each other / owned by the the same parent company, etc.

I do not believe they are affiliated with each other but I will see what I can find out.  I will also see what new features are coming on NowMD.  I don't have a connection to TotalMD so hopefully someone else can get to that one.

Thanks Merry.  I wasn't looking for a comparison between the two.  I just noticed that both are relatively close together on E. Baseline Road and wondered if that implied they were connected in some business sense.  Based on what you and Michelle say, the answers seems to be "no".

We are all the old timers..Now MD, Total MD, AltaPoint etc. Going back over 25 years just for software. We were very careful when we looked at software for our medicalbillingstudycourse.com and felt that not only was Now MD the best solution but the support was incredible. To be able to pick up a phone and call for help and not wit til the next day for a call back is a great bonus. And to be able to talk to people who have been in the medical billing field for years great stuff.

Most software companies do not talk about "what is coming". As you know, they can be in development for something that adds the bells and whistles and CMS comes out with something new that is required in a short time. So the "bells and whistles" project has to stop and development for the requirements have to commence. Updates and changes are never done by one person. It takes a team of developers.

I just spoke to Jeff and he told me that he had just updated the site http://www.nowmd.com/. You can download a demo and also watch the tutorials.And if you purchase from us, you get a 10% discount for being a member of this forum.
