ATLANTA, Ga. (February 9, 2011)—For the eighth consecutive year, Piedmont Physicians Group has been identified as a “better performer” by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Performance and Practices of Successful Medical Groups: 2010 Report Based on 2009 Data. Piedmont Physicians Group – a 100-plus member primary care physician group with more than 35 offices throughout metro Atlanta – received this distinction due to its superior operational service compared with similar medical group practices nationwide.
Based on this recognition, Piedmont Physicians Group is among the top 10 percent of all physician practices in the United States in the area of revenue cycle management. The healthcare revenue cycle relates to all of the processes, sub-processes and enabling technologies associated with the initial patient registration through the collection of the amounts due for services rendered. Healthcare organizations can increase their return on investment by successfully managing the revenue cycle.
The MGMA report, a benchmarking standard among medical groups for more than 10 years, profiles medical practices that have demonstrated success in one or more business areas: profitability and cost management; productivity, capacity and staffing; accounts receivable and collections; patient satisfaction; and managed care operations.
