Zotec Partners now providing billing services for West Houston Radiology Associates

Source: Healthcare Finance News

Zotec Partners, an industry leading provider of specialized medical billing and practice management services for the hospital-based specialty market, announced that it is taking over billing operations for Houston-based West Houston Radiology Associates, a comprehensive provider of diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology procedures. The group previously outsourced its billing to a local provider.
 
Currently, WHRA is composed of 24 American Board of Radiology certified radiologists with expertise in body imaging, interventional radiology, oncology, cardiac imaging, neuroradiology, women's imaging and nuclear medicine/PET imaging. The group provides services for four hospital systems and more than 30 independent outpatient centers, and interprets more than 600,000 studies each year.
 
“Our previous billing company wasn’t getting the job done, and with the current market and upcoming changes in healthcare, we knew it was time to make a change,” said Dr. Craig Thiessen, president of West Houston Radiology Associates. “Our decision to outsource to Zotec Partners was multi-factorial. We like the fact that it is a national company with a strong presence in Texas and has a great reputation as a leading radiology billing provider.”
 
The reporting capabilities of Zotec Partners’ Decision Support analytics technology also played a role in WHRA’s decision to outsource to the company. The software will play an integral role in helping the group proactively manage its business and drill down into its data.
 
“We recognize the importance of specialist resources and technology to protect us from payer denials and increasing business costs, and that’s why we turned to the experts at Zotec Partners,” said Thiessen. “We’re confident that the company’s billing platform and radiology expertise will ensure that all of our charges are handled to completion and we’re paid as agreed for our services.”
 
WHRA provides around-the-clock radiology services and patient care through its integrated PACS, RIS and voice recognition system. These resources enable immediate consultation, interpretation and dictation of exams by specialty radiologists with the fastest possible report turnaround.
 
“Zotec Partners will drive revenue growth for WHRA using our innovative technology and superior processes,” said David Law, partner of sales and marketing for Zotec Partners. “Enhanced technology and specific expertise in medical billing are essential to optimizing income, minimizing costs and providing organized data to support informed business decisions for the group.”
