Running the Practice
Radiology is both high-volume and multi-faceted at University Diagnostic Medical Imaging (UDMI) in the Bronx NY, with hundreds of patients moving through the practice for one or more radiological procedures on any given day.
The Administrator behind UDMI’s operation is Robert Klein who points out the keys to UDMI’s successful and profitable operation are (1) consistently high patient satisfaction ratings and (2) a unique, sophisticated revenue management
When Mr. Klein joined the practice in 2005, UDMI was just transitioning from their Medics II system which had been in use successfully since 1995, to the MedicsRIS and MedicsPremier systems, all of which are produced by Advanced Data Systems (ADS).
Mr. Klein was able to help the practice weave together a unique and highly customized set of tools for scheduling, workflow and revenue management. These tools are all built around the MedicsPremier and MedicsRIS with capabilities such as comprehensive radiology EDI and claims management, financial and management reports, as well as the scheduler and workflow.
