Pay-as-you-go Pricing Saves Medical Organizations Thousands in Economic Downturn
Orlando, FL.—October 8, 2008—CollaborateMD, a leading provider of Internet practice management and medical billing software for the healthcare industry, attributes 3rd quarter growth to their cost-effective hybrid Software as a Service (SaaS) model, which combines the convenience and flexibility characteristic of most browser-based applications with the speed and power found in many locally run Windows-based programs.
The Company—being one of only two medical billing software solutions available today that utilizes this hybrid model—continues to lead the forefront in SaaS or SaaS-like applications for speed and flexibility. The recent surge in demand for the award-winning software, however, is more likely attributable to its affordability. Specifically, the pay-as-you-go pricing model and wide variety of complimentary features with minimal up-front and monthly fees has attracted a great deal of attention from medical practices and billing services trying to save money given the recent economic instability.
“Now, more than ever, medical organizations are benefiting greatly from our pricing model which allows them to reduce capital expenditures while still reaping the rewards of an on-demand solution,” stated Douglas Kegler, CollaborateMD president and CEO. “We will continue to serve as an oasis for medical organizations in this tight credit market because we offer a low implementation fee [about $899] and monthly pay-as-you-go plans [starting as low as $149 per provider] versus typical software/license models provided by non-SaaS competitors.”
The acceptance of the CollaborateMD system can be realized by the fact that they have processed over a billion dollars in insurance claims in the first three quarters of 2008 versus a billion dollars in claims in all of 2007.
