Atlanta Radiology Group Continues 20-Year Revenue Cycle Management Partnership with Zotec Partners
Contract Renewal Signifies Trusted Relationship in a Challenging and Ever-Changing Industry
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – (September 7, 2016) – Zotec Partners (Zotec), the industry-leading provider of radiology revenue cycle and practice management services, announces a revenue cycle management (RCM) services renewal with Piedmont Radiology, a Division of Radiology Associates of Atlanta (RAA). Piedmont Radiology is considered the leading medical imaging and interventional organization in Atlanta, Georgia. In the extended agreement, Zotec will continue to manage the group’s revenue cycle by employing superior billing processes, proprietary technology, and a team of trusted radiology experts.
Founded in 1969 as RAA, Piedmont Radiology was established to be the exclusive provider of radiology services at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hospital, a relationship that continues to thrive nearly half a century later. Its staff of 19 radiologists are highly trained and board-certified, with additional subspecialty board-certifications where available, such as in neuroradiology, interventional radiology and cardiac CT. Today Piedmont Radiology proudly provides imaging and interventional expertise to patients at Piedmont Hospital, the Outpatient Diagnostic Center, The Doris Shaheen Breast Health Center, and the Piedmont West Outpatient Center. The group also serves as a tertiary-care referral site for Piedmont Mountainside Piedmont Newnan Hospitals.
Piedmont Radiology’s Practice Manager, Laura Roth, notes that Zotec’s industry knowledge and unique RCM technology has helped the group maintain high levels of efficiency over the years. “With Zotec, we have always had a complete revenue cycle management package that includes nationally recognized services with technologically advanced platforms to assist us with physician scheduling, business intelligence and in-depth reporting.” She adds that Zotec’s team of trusted professionals possess a vast array of radiology industry knowledge, helping the group succeed since 1996.
David J. Law, executive vice president of sales and marketing with Zotec, agrees that Zotec’s technologies continue to assist Piedmont Radiology with various aspects of its RCM. “Zotec’s Comprehensive Zotec Analytics and Reporting (CZAR) technology gives Piedmont Radiology access to transparent practice data to make informed business decisions, while our Zotec Analytics and Reporting Interface (ZARi) transforms complex data algorithms into meaningful and concise narrative reports for the group,” he says. He also notes that today’s changing reimbursement environment is moving toward a business to consumer model, and the increase in high deductible health plans has created a shift in billing and payment for providers and patients. “Zotec will help Piedmont Radiology meet patient consumers where they are in the billing cycle with patient experience methods that provide consumers with multiple payment options, including website portals, mobile capabilities, payment plans, auto-deduction from health savings accounts, and sophisticated interactive voice technologies, to name a few,” he adds.
Zotec is the largest radiology revenue cycle and practice management provider in the country, with more than 20 years in the radiology industry. It serves 35 of the nation’s top 100 radiology groups, including thousands of radiologists. Zotec integrates the best people, processes and technology for fast, accurate and compliant radiology reimbursement solutions. Zotec’s proprietary processes and technology manage in excess of 70 million medical encounters across all 50 states.
