Tebra’s integrated platform enables celebrations speech group to open new locations

California Speech Therapy Provider Expands Business While Improving Clinical and Financial Operations

NEWPORT BEACH, CA – March 16, 2023 – Tebra, a leader in practice growth technology and cloud-based clinical and financial software, today announced that Celebrations Speech Group, a renowned speech-language pathology provider in Northern California, has successfully opened three locations leveraging Tebra’s complete operating system. Celebrations Speech Group recently shared that it will be opening a fourth location due to patient demand. Tebra’s platform is built off the strength of both Kareo and PatientPop solutions. Celebrations Speech Group uses Kareo Clinical and Kareo Billing to enhance its operational effectiveness and chose PatientPop Practice Growth technology to attract and retain new patients.

Celebrations Speech Group was using both Kareo and PatientPop independently before they merged to form Tebra. Chimezie Chidi, practice owner of Celebrations Speech Group, explored several different technology platforms before choosing the right solution for her growing business. When she heard the two companies had merged, she recognized how complementary they are and has experienced even more positive results from leveraging Tebra’s unified platform.

Using Tebra, Celebrations Speech Group has opened three practices and now employs more than 20 providers and a growing staff. Not only was onboarding new providers simple and easy, but through automation, the practice now receives an average of three new online reviews per week which has helped attract new patients. Since using Tebra’s Practice Growth tools, Chidi has gained over 80 new online reviews (with an average 4.8 rating), 10 new patient appointments per month, and a higher online search ranking. This growth is a direct result of Tebra’s website optimization and Google Ads strategy. In addition, the practice has been able to reduce its no-show rate to almost zero by using text messages to automate appointment reminders and streamline two-way patient communication. Moreover, the practice has quadrupled its revenue and appointments following implementation in 2016.

“I saw the value of using both Kareo and PatientPop before they merged to become Tebra, and now that they are a unified platform, I have even more feature functionality and support available to help my business as it continues to grow,” Chimezie Chidi, owner of Celebrations Speech Group, said. “The team at Tebra has been a tremendous ally to my team and I look forward to continuing the partnership as it truly is the best all-in-one platform on the market.”

“We are deeply committed to independent practices like Celebrations Speech Group and are pleased to see how impactful our integrated platform has been in shaping and evolving their practice,” Andrea Kowalski, senior vice president of product for Tebra, said. “A harmonious technology experience not only improves patient-provider outcomes, but it also eases physician burnout.”

Kareo and PatientPop merged in 2021 to form Tebra. The combined company’s mission is to equip independent practices with digital tools to deliver modernized care. The all-in-one solution can help providers support and attract new patients, get paid quickly, and operate more efficiently.
