CMSI was founded in January of 2010 by Douglas Esbach and Clarissa Harris in a collaboration of medical billing, financial, and practice management expertise with over 90 years of cumulative experience. The core management group of this entity has worked in the Mid-Atlantic/southeast exclusively since the mid 70’s; providing expertise during the tumultuous times of hospital based physicians being forced to provide their own billing services, to the current requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and Accountable Care Organizations. This extensive experience and superior reputation for client service allowed CMSI to grow dramatically in their fledgling years and is now recognized as one of the premier practice management companies operating in the Southeast.
Researching and acquiring the most flexible, state of the art, billing software was of paramount importance due to the rapidly changing informational needs and regulatory requirements of the current environment. CMSI sought a company with the strength and financial viability to bring an end-to-end solution to market. It was the capability and flexibility that convinced them to chose the Merge Financials software for the new company. This new software expanded the CMSI capabilities and allowed them to offer similar services to almost all types of physician billing requirements.
In an environment fraught with the perils of rapid change, government regulations, and changing reimbursement; CMSI and Merge are uniquely qualified to respond to the informational and practice management needs of today’s medical practice.
