Do not recommend this to anyone

Pros

It gives you the option to notify you when an authorization is going to expire, before it expires so that you are able to get a re-authorization.

Cons

Horrible set up and scheduling is a joke. The scheduling is far from user friendly and the set up of the scheduling is awful.

I love it. I have all the tools and support I need to get my claims paid. While using CMD, we have increase our clients revenue by a minimum of 15% and some as high as 50%.

Pros

They are constantly improving the software based on what we, the billers, need. Very professional and knowledgeable staff and support is at no additional charge.

Cons

CMD is a billing system. If you are looking for a more robust scheduler and other enhancements you may be disappointed. But as a biller; nothing else matters if you cannot get the claim out the door!

One of the most positive things about Collaborate MD is their willingness to listen and change their software if they can and if the platform allows the change requested.

Likes Least

The reports on Collaborate MD seem extensive and is promoted as "write any report that you can imagine", however, writing reports that include Revenue, Receipts and Adjustment is not an option and simply can not be done. In addition, month end and year end reports are not saved on the system, should you require month end or year end information it is necessary to collect and save reports to Excel or similar software. The problem with this is predicting exactly what you may need to report 1 to 5 years or longer from now. In a "real time" environment it is difficult to balance daily reports much less monthly or annual. All input to the system must stop until you gather reports or they do not balance, if you are a 24/7 facility this can create a nightmare for accounting.

Recommendations

Make sure you understand the software well before you set up your own system it makes a very big difference in how it functions for long term. Understand the system limitation, if you are a 24/7 facility this may not be a good choice.

I can say with confidence from my own experiences plus colleagues' reported experiences with several of the most well known medical billing/practice management systems, that Collaborate MD is the best product among them all. It's the easiest, fastest, most intuitive, user friendly product with unlimited professional support in every area for as long as you have the product. They have one goal, to get their customer's claims paid as fast as possible, and they take it very seriously. They are constantly improving their product with many updates throughout the year which include implementing customer's input to maintain a cutting edge product that is continually evolving. For the price, it's a steal in comparison to other systems. If they ever get wise to what they have, they would charge far more for their services.

Likes Least

Nothing. Product is exceptional all around and the people are top-notch professionals who know their product and area of expertise.

Recommendations

You will not find a better product in this category with incredible support and efficiency of professionals who really know their area of expertise. This product is the company's total focus to make it the best.

The reports on the software contain a lot of useful information for A/R follow up, and ease of use. The creation of claims is very easy and simple to use as well. The software is very easy on the eyes, and easy to comprehend. The large buttons at the top are not overwhelming, as I've seen in other comparable medical software systems.

Likes Least

The inability to see a payment and where it was applied can be difficult when speaking with a patient, and they ask "Where did my $100 apply to?" which would require you to add up each of the applied portions of the payment. Sometimes system slowness can be an issue when trying to add new claims and patient demographics.

Recommendations

Just think about what is important to you and your company to meet your own needs with a software. If reports and system performance are important, make sure you thoroughly evaluate your choices before selecting a program.

As the office manager for a psychologist and assistant (PA), I knew the software that was being used when I came on board was the biggest issue with the cash flow in the office. I checked into two different vendors when I was looking to make a change in the software used. I looked at Kareo and CollaborateMD. The price was fairly similar and the software was web-based for both systems. The turning point for our decision was the unlimited support after implementation as well as no time limit for implementation. If it takes 2 months for the user to feel comfortable enough after the implementation to be released, CollaborateMD's support will have the same implementation specialist assigned to you. There is no rush to "sink or swim". I felt very educated when my specialist (Amanda) released me to support.

My only "complaint", if you can even call it that, is there's no mobile version of the software...yet! I know the engineers are working on something so it will be mobile soon.

CollaborateMD has always gone above and beyond their call of duty. Their user-friendly software makes it an overall great experience. They have always accommodated my business needs and their service is excellent. Another super great asset that sets CollaborateMD apart in the industry is their CRM service. My CRM representative always makes sure that I succeed in all of my business transactions and has genuine concern for my business and me. They are always available to assist my team and are willing to listen to ideas and suggestions. If you want to add value to your business, CollaborateMD should be your billing software of choice.

If I had to rate CollaborateMD for their support and never ending kindness for my business and family, I would rate them a 10! Having a dedicate Client Relationship Experience Manger is one of our greatest investments with CollaborateMD. With the recent loss of my son, who conducted all of our business transactions, I could not see the road in which I would be able to carry on his legacy. CollaborateMD stepped in not only for moral support but their kindness goes beyond words. They took the time to teach me the system that I knew so little about. I felt as if they owned my business and did everything possible to make me succeed. They were so patient and never made me feel as if I was incompetent of running a business after the loss of my son. I was able to call anytime and get the help I needed to keep the business going! Loosing my son was tragic, I could not loose my business as well, CollaborateMD made sure that this would never happen. Having CollaborateMD at my side through ever step to continue with my business made life so much easier to cope with. They truly demonstrated love, dedication, commitment to Ozark Medical Billing Services both on a personal and business level. I will forever be thankful to CollaborateMD for all of my successes.

CollaborateMD - has been absolutely phenomenal to work with. No matter the time of day, the scope of the problem, whether it is a user error, system issue, or where we can't figure out how to get from point A to point B, CollaborateMD has been there holding our hand every step of the way with their support, training, and encouragement. We could not have moved as quickly as we have without CollaboratMD’s unflagging support and constant monitoring of our progress as we took each step forward in this process. For 6 facilities under 1 umbrella, and a completely different setup from any other client, CollaborateMD has stepped up and taken ownership of our success as if they had a vested interest in our company.

I am the biller for a psychologist and his assistant. We have a small practice with a high Medicare volume. I started looking for a program because of the rejections from Medicare. I had to do double entry; by creating the claims on a PDF formatted HCFA form to print out on the actual forms and then mailing the claims in. Once they were mailed, my provider had to wait for up to a month for reimbursement of the claims. It was costing us a fortune to create these claims! The system we were using was not meeting our needs when it came to scheduling both of the providers in the office.

When we started on April 1st with CollaborateMD we were using 8.3.1 but a recent upgrade brought us up to 8.4. The upgrade was seamless and introduced the ability to assign tasks to other users (which I love!). The implementation went very fast. The data entry took about 2 weeks because I was doing it alone, but since our providers only see about 30-40 patients a week, it wasn't horrible. I did enter every patient from the old system just for the history. The training was through and I felt very supported and still do by our implementation specialist, Amanda. The only hiccup, if you will, has been with a payor denying claims that would not be denied on their own website due to a member ID number discrepancy.

The customer support has been wonderful. I call or email Amanda and I get a response quickly if not right away. I have benefitted from this change because I am getting most of my payments by ERA and now submitting most every claim electronically. I only have 1 payor who is not currently accepting electronic claims submission. I am very happy with my choice in this program. My only complaint is I wish we could have done it sooner.

After working on a variety of practice management systems, from the very expensive to the potentially cost-prohibitive, I've found CollaborateMD to be extremely easy to use, as well as afford. From day-to-day tasks like checking insurance eligibility, to in-depth data mining and reporting, CollaborateMD has been an excellent solution for our practice.

Pros

Ease of use/functionality.

Cons

The interface from our EHR to the PMS is uni-directional, and bi-directional would be ideal.

Thank Micah for your kind words. It has been a pleasure to support you and your business since 2013. With the EHR integration, we are glad your business has found value. Our current integration has saved users hours a day of duplicate data-entry of patient demographics and the automation of creating claims. We are working with your current EHR vendor to allow more diversity with our API integration, to streamline your day-to-day functions even further, in the future.

Thank you again for your loyalty with CollaborateMD.

My CollaborateMD Training Specialist was phenomenal. She answered all of my questions thoroughly, used examples and even posed additional questions we didn't know to ask to further clarify a topic.

Because of the training I received, I feel very comfortable and confident using all sections of CollaborateMD by myself. I know if I ever have a question, support is there for me. Overall, the training was top-notch, the CollaborateMD program is easy to learn, easy to use, very affordable with excellent continued support and customer service. I can't imagine any other billing software on the market today that is so easy to use and intuitive with this kind of professional support and customer service.

Thank you to all at CollaborateMD for an excellent product and the best training and service in the industry!!
