Mid-size Billing Company in Massachusetts Is Using Latest Feature in Kareo Patient Collect to Make Tracking and Collecting of Outstanding Revenue Easier and Quicker

IRVINE, Calif., January 13, 2022 – Kareo, a leading provider of cloud-based clinical and business management software solutions for independent healthcare practices and billing companies, announced that its client ABS Business Solutions Inc. (ABS), a mid-sized billing company in Falmouth, MA, is leveraging Kareo Automated Patient Billing to modernize its patient revenue collection process for its providers.

Within 30 days of implementing Kareo Automated Patient Billing, ABS collected more than $80,000 in outstanding revenue for its providers. Additionally, the ABS staff of 24 has saved a minimum of two hours per person, per week, by not having to manually enter reporting updates. Overall, ABS clients that are small practices find it beneficial to keep their patient balances at zero, and those that are larger providers that had substantial patient balances when they enrolled in the program are now thriving.

We’ve seen a huge jump in patients making payments sooner, using text and email, which is keeping outstanding balances down.”
