I am the President of Physicians Reimbursement System (PRS, LLC). My business journey started in the microfilm industry nearly forty years ago. I have worked in the business services sector for nearly forty years and have a keen appreciation for human capital (our employees) and production processes.
In 1988 I ventured into the medical billing field and have seen the industry move through several milestones, beginning with the introduction of mandatory CPT codes, mandatory electronic claim submission, introduction of NPI, 5010 conversion, ICD-10 replacing ICD-9 and literally thousands of payer policy changes. I have always had an affinity for formulas, calculations and numbers. As a result, I am able to deconstruct and decipher billing operations from revenue cycle reports.
Nothing satisfies me more than being able to provide revenue cycle services that deliver a bona-fide return on investment. Over the last two decades, my clients consistently increase revenue far above the cost of our services.
Scott Painter has extensive experience with medical coding information.
