drchrono Releases First Medical Billing App in the App Store; First Time Medical Billers Can Be Mobile

drchrono Also Releases Surgical Center Billing Into Its EHR Platform

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2015) - drchrono, the EHR on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and web for physicians and their patients, announced today that it has just released its medical billing app for the iPad, allowing medical billers to view claims and review billing statuses right from their mobile device for the very first time.

Medical billing has not moved forward in years; medical billers have been locked to their desks in order to figure out the status of medical claims. For the first time, executives, physicians and medical billers can now see the status of billing anywhere, anytime through their iPad.

The financial stability of a medical practice is based on how efficiently a doctor gets paid and how the money flows from payers (e.g. insurance company) to the practice. Medical billers, physicians, and executives need business intelligence tools at their fingertips to see how efficient their practice is at all times.

The first version of drchrono's app gives medical billers and executives of medical practices a quick snapshot of the practice's financial health in real-time, for example, how fast claims are being paid out, rejection rates and other vital financial stats.

"drchrono's commitment is to help independent medical practices thrive. Today drchrono is known as the best Mobile EHR on the market to improve a medical provider's productivity at the point of care and now we are striving to improve all ambulatory practices' financial health with an innovative approach to medical billing and revenue cycle management," said Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of drchrono. "Our new Medical Billing Mobile app will revolutionize the way doctors and healthcare executives look at their business."

"I am excited to see medical billing insights in real time on my iPad," said Eric S. Millstein, M.D. "I choose drchrono because of its focus on the iPad, and love seeing the amazing innovations that the company keeps making." Dr. Millstein owns an Orthopedic Surgery center and Sports Medicine practice in Los Angeles, CA.

The drchrono team is also proud to announce it has released surgical center billing into its EHR platform so medical professionals can support their private practice while maintaining billing for surgeries and hospital grade billing all within drchrono.

"We are building the best medical billing experience for physicians by creating one unified platform," said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and co-founder of drchrono. "We are beginning to work with doctors in private practice who also work in or own a surgical center and can do professional billing in their private practice as well as surgical level billing in their surgical center."
