Maxim Management Services is a Cheektowaga, NY based Medical Service Organization providing administrative services to meet the needs of any medical practice.
Beginning in 2014, corporate leadership at Maxim heard frequent issues concerning transcription quality and turnaround time (TAT). When looking into the escalations, they discovered the need for additional manpower, managerial staﬀ, and coverage for nights and holidays.
- Escalating patient complaints
- High cost of transcription with inherent ineﬃciencies
- Lack of 24/7 coverage for critical documentation services
- Provider dissatisfaction
- Lost revenue
AQuity oﬀered Maxim a unique, operational framework that solved the problem while being cost eﬀective. Taking over the transcription service, AQuity quickly controlled the situation with decades of problem-solving skills and proven expertise in process optimization using Six Sigma and TQM models. Additional levels of quality control and automated error detection resulted in a drastic reduction of transcription errors. The commitment to quality was immediately noticed by providers. To make the integration complete, AQuity took over the transcription team, reinstating record eﬃciency with a huge direct and recurring cost savings to Maxim.
Maxim entrusted the AQuity Physician Practice Management & RCM Services team with coding, vital practice management activities and billing functions. The team quickly mastered the Medent EHR platform, and numbers indicated a steady improvement with faster claims processing, reduced denials, and a justiﬁable increased cash ﬂow.
