PRS Mission

The PRS Network mission is to provide precise medical coding, billing, reimbursement, and practice management information and services to maximize provider reimbursement dollars.

For over 25 years the PRS Network has provided quality products, services, data and education to help clinicians meet the demands of the ever-changing arena of reimbursement. While still in private practice the PRS Network founder, M. Ray Painter, MD, realized that keeping up with the escalating demands of Medicare and private payers was becoming too burdensome for overworked clinicians. In response to that realization, he founded the PRS Network to assist his colleagues with the process of obtaining accurate reimbursement while adhering to the complex, rules and regulations.

The PRS Network has always been able to anticipate practice and clinician needs based on marketplace changes and in turn help educate physicians and develop innovative solutions for their practices. Physicians have been relying on the PRS Network, since its inception, for information and education to keep their practices prepared for the future.
