Florida Radiology Consultants (FRC) has signed a three year, $ 3 million contract with St. Louis-based Evolutions, a leading national practice management and medical billing solutions provider. FRC has added Evolutions billing collection services for their hospital practice at the Lee Memorial Health System and their imaging centers, all located in Fort Myers and Cape Coral, Florida (Lee County).
Evoutions has been providing Florida Radiology Consultants with their practice management services since April 2004 and medical coding since December 2004. Evolutions will open an office in the Fort Myers area, where Florida Radiology Consultants performs over 300,000 radiology procedures annually.
We are excited to continue our relationship with Florida Radiology Consultants and look forward to providing these additional services to them, said Tom Long, President and CEO of Evolutions. This radiology group is one of the best in healthcare industry, and we are pleased they have selected us as their billing collections services provider.
Florida Radiology Consultants, a 17-physician radiology group, serves the medical community and citizens of southwest Florida with the latest advances in diagnostic imaging. For over three decades, the physicians at Florida Radiology Consultants have earned a reputation as area leaders for accurate diagnostic imaging and prompt reporting. Today, hundreds of medical professionals rely on the group to interpret virtually every type of imaging from lung and heart scans to musculoskeletal, abdominal and brain scans.
“Florida Radiology Consultants is excited about expanding our relationship with Evolutions, said Dr. Joseph Tienstra, President of Florida Radiology Consultants. We are confident that Evolutions has the expertise and attention to detail that our practice requires. We have already seen outstanding results once we started using them for medical coding.”
Evolutions, headquartered in St. Louis with regional offices in Cape Girardeau, MO and Evansville, IN, provides high quality and responsive medical billing solutions to its client base of radiologists, radiation oncologists, imaging centers and other medical specialties located throughout the U.S. Evolutions currently has 29 clients located in nine states (MO, IL, AR, KY, CO, MS, FL, VA and WV) and has the capability to provide services nationwide with potential opportunities in MI, CA, AL, NY and SC.
Evolutions billing solutions entail much more than producing bills for medical providers. The companys enhanced billing solutions, which are totally HIPAA-compliant, have reduced days in A/R for many clients by 35 percent. Payment denials have been reduced by as much as 18 percent due to the companys unique claims data scrubber that checks for missing data elements, transpositions and illogical information. Professional coders also examine each claim submitted by Evolutions to insure that all coding is at the appropriate and correct level. The company also monitors trends in its clients claims submissions and when they discover recurring anomalies, they provide client training to correct the problem.
