Our 2012 Medical Billing New Year’s Resolutions

December 29th, 2011 by Joann Doan

Our New Year's resolution is to continue to be the easy, affordable medical billing software option, helping you reduce the anxiety involved in getting paid in the changing world of healthcare




It’s that time of year, and like everyone else, we’re thinking about how to make 2012 better than 2011. But, no resolutions to lose weight or dump the loser ex here—our resolutions are all about how to make 2012 easier and more profitable for you. So, with that in mind, we resolve to:

  1. Continue expanding and developing our Customer Support team to provide you with the best, industry-leading assistance possible for your medical billing software.
  2. Not require a contract in 2012 and beyond, allowing you the freedom to choose the medical billing software that works best for your practice without a cancellation penalty.
  3. Continue providing free, useful medical billing webinars to help you improve your profitability and manage the plethora of changes occurring in healthcare in 2012.
  4. Not charge a setup fee in 2012 (as always), keeping the cost of entry for your medical billing software at $0.
  5. Continue asking for your suggestions for features and improvements to Kareo, so that we can meet your needs for the best possible medical billing software.
  6. Offer you the widest range of options in EHRs integrated with Kareo, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your practice and specialty, and including low-cost and free EHR options.
  7. Provide you with as much useful information as possible on all the changes occurring in healthcare in 2012 through our monthly newsletter, blogs and social media.
  8. Offer the widest possible range of training and reference tools on our website, including video, live and recorded webinars, and written guides.
  9. And because we all need a laugh once in a while, we’ll continue to provide the occasional quirky blog post such as “How to Handle Medical Billing After a Zombie Apocalypse” or “Twas the Night Before 5010.”

In all, our resolution is to continue to be the easy, affordable medical billing software option, helping you reduce the anxiety involved in getting paid in the changing world of healthcare.

We wish you all a very happy, healthy—and profitable—New Year in 2012.

Twas the Night Before 5010

December 19th, 2011 by Joann Doan

We just can’t resist the chance to have a little fun at the holidays. So with sincere apologies to Clement Moore, we offer up our (slightly) humorous take on medical billing and the challenges faced by medical practices.

Twas the night before 5010...a humorous take on medical billing

Twas the night before 5010 and all through the land

Many a practice was ready and the deadline at hand

The changes were made to the software we had

When CMS said, “If they’re not ready, this will be bad!”


So an enforcement delay was announced with a sigh of relief

But others merely shrugged in frustrated disbelief

When out in the practices, there arose such a clatter

That we sprang up to see what was the matter


“5010, ACOs, ICD-10 and medical homes!” cried the docs

“Don’t you know we can only take so many shocks?!”

When what to our wondering eyes should appear

But web-based computing and medical billing without fear


No contracts, no setup fees, no expensive upgrade

Billing much easier could hardly be made

The docs sprang to their PCs quick as a whistle

And away they all billed like a lightning-fast missile


But I heard them exclaim as they won the hard fight,

“Happy billing to all, now on to ICD-10…right?”


If you have verses you’d like to add, we’d love to hear them! Just enter them in the Comments box, and we’ll be happy to share them with our readers. Happy Holidays to all!
