United Medical will work to increase the practice profitability by streamlining practice workflow and operations allowing the practice to focus on increasing quality of care. The assessment of the practice is personally performed by CEO, Kemal Erkan and discussed directly with the physician.
Our staff is well versed in practice management and medical billing; the average increase of revenue is anticipated to be between 5% and 10% (as an average of the prior calendar year). Once the revenues have been maximized for the practice the next goal of United Medical is to decrease the expenditures. The staff and efficiency of the office will be carefully surveyed and recommendations and solutions will be offered.
Our services are customized to meet your practice’s needs. The following list is a sampling of United Medical’s offerings:

Keeping you organized ›
You can use the solution to organize your daily tasks so that you can focus on what's important. You’ll know at a glance when new insurance reports arrive, the status of your claim batches and which follow-up calls or patient commitments are scheduled for the day. Features like our innovative Patient Monitor-a visual practice dashboard- will help you quickly organize your entire office.
Improving cash flow ›
Industry studies show it costs approximately $15 to get a clean claim paid. Costs rise significantly each time you have to fix or resubmit a claim.
Specialty PM eliminates the common mistakes that prevent or delay insurance reimbursement, saving you time and money. It starts with registration and scheduling. Our solution helps you gather patient, responsible party and insurance policy information.
The solution alerts you during scheduling and check-in if a patient's insurance company requires authorization and prompts front-desk personnel to collect patient co-pays or outstanding balances at the time of service.
Integrated solutions ›
Integrating the solution with PowerWorks EMR automates coding, speeds claim filing and keeps you from having to manage encounter forums or manually enter charges.
PowerWorks' HIPAA-compliant transaction services allow your practice to send an unlimited number of claims and receive insurance explanation of benefits electronically.
With an Internet connection, you can use the solution to get real-time updates on claim status. With most payers, you can have your claims adjudicated, paid and posted weeks sooner than a paper-based system.
