This busy Center provides patients with non-invasive diagnostic studies of the of the heart, venous and arterial systems. Patients are referred to the Center by local doctors.</p> <p>The Problem <br />Karen Munoz handled the billing for the Cardiovascular Center of Lompoc (CCL) out of her home office. Each day she would go to CCL to retrieve the center’s billing paperwork. When she returned home, if the paperwork she needed to complete the billing wasn’t in the files she had retrieved, she’d have to call the center and have someone tell her the information, or have it faxed to her.</p> <p>Karen recalls a conversation she had with a representative from Pinnacle Office Systems who had come to service her copy machine. They talked about all the hassles of working with paper records, and how having those records converted to electronic images and then organized on a PC would be a far more efficient way of working.</p> <!--break--> <div class="wlWriterEditableSmartContent" id="scid:8eb9d37f-1541-4f29-b6f4-1eea890d4876:ec1fa7b9-ee6e-4eef-ad31-fa38dc50220f" style="padding-right: 0px; display: inline; padding-left: 0px; float: none; padding-bottom: 0px; margin: 0px; padding-top: 0px"><p><div>Download the full case study: <a href=" target="_blank">Medical and Financial Records Cardio Center</a></div></p></div>
