New Software Service Allows Physicians to Meet Obama's Electronic Medical Records Push at NO cost

NEW YORK, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Obama administration has set aside $19B for physicians to adopt electronic medical record systems. Today, 75% of doctors practice in offices with 10 doctors or fewer. For them, the investment is cost-prohibitive: the technology costs from $25,000 to over $75,000. Not surprisingly, only 17% of physicians use computerized records, according to the New York Journal of Medicine. Yet, one service provider allows physicians to switch to electronic medical records -- free -- and make their practice more profitable.

Millin Associates (, a medical billing field leader for 27 years, now provides physicians, nationally, in any specialty, electronic medical records software free of charge. Millin empowers physicians to better receive payments, streamline costs and minimize denied claims.

Millin's electronic medical systems is CCHIT-certified. With state-of-the-art software and unparalleled knowledge, Millin works denials, posts claims, ensures patients are eligible, and verifies deductibles. They provide a convenient patient portal: patients schedule appointments online; physicians send for tests and receive patients' medical histories upfront.

Millin is sensitive to small offices' concerns: they have no upfront costs, operating on contingency only. Also, Millin provides a highly-trained IT department, with compliance experts and certified coders. Millin enters any environment, works from any existing database, and relieves overburdened practices. Millin's software has detailed reporting capabilities, providing executives with complete financial reports. This allows them to analyze in-house processes, acting on inefficiencies. Millin is recommended by leading accountancies, law firms and independent auditors (and is HIPAA-compliant).

Millin Associates is at the forefront of medical billing: their hands-on, service-oriented approach ensures practices optimize operations, billing, and records. Millin can research and process 100,000+ claims simultaneously. Capacity -- always a worry -- is no longer an issue. This allows doctors to increase revenue, and ensure sustainability.

The push towards electronic medical records is undeniable. Wal-Mart now sells electronic medical records services: they see value for their own employees, and in selling the service to others.

Millin CEO Sol Weiss is excited about the chance to work with physicians nationwide. "Physicians nationwide, at no cost, can get ahead of the electronic medical records initiative, and make their billing more profitable. Our question to them is, 'why not see what we can do for you? You can't lose with our contingency-only basis.'"
