TRA medical imagine shifts from in-house billing to outsourcing to Zotec PartnersMarch 27, 2012 | Industry News Release
Zotec Partners, an industry leading provider of specialized medical billing and practice management services for the hospital-based specialty market, announces today that it will manage all billing operations for TRA Medical Imaging, out of Tacoma, Wash. After five years of licensing Zotec Partners’ billing technology, TRA made the decision to completely outsource billing to the company’s expert team.
“The decision to outsource was reached once it was determined we could not drive out additional costs without negatively impacting patient service and our Key Performance Indicators,” said Dennis Carter, CEO of TRA Medical Imaging. ”Zotec Partners’ ability to deliver cost effective technology right where it is needed was a major factor in our decision making process.”
TRA Medical Imaging is a multi-specialty radiologist group composed of 52 physicians who are highly trained and experienced in diagnosing a broad spectrum of complicated medical conditions. With imaging centers located throughout the Puget Sound region and more than 700,000 exam interpretations annually, TRA Medical Imaging’s focus is on patient safety, the highest quality diagnostic imaging and expert exam interpretation.
“It has never been more important for practices to make sure that they have a talent pool that’s up to date, understands the nuances of our business and can provide assurance that everything is operating properly,” said Dr. Michael T. Dowd, president of TRA Medical Imaging. “Zotec Partners’ ability to leverage its human and technological assets and generate cost effective processes that are managed by a well-trained staff that produce reliable, repeatable and verifiably performance was a critical component of this change.”
Zotec Partners is the industry leader in specialized medical billing and practice management services for the hospital-based specialty market. The company is committed to the continual pursuit of excellence in the physician revenue cycle management industry by delivering effective solutions through personalized service and measurable client results.

“By outsourcing to Zotec Partners, TRA Medical Imaging’s bottom-line will go up, and the group will maintain access to our state-of-the-art reporting to better manage its business,” said David J. Law, partner of sales and marketing for Zotec Partners. “Our tools, including the online patient portal and automated phone dialer, will help the group improve collections by giving its patients around-the-clock access to communicate billing information and make payments.”
