“Strategic Solutions has been key in turning our practice into a very efficient, patient-friendly business. Their billing services have improved our financial performance. Their valuable insight into improving workflow, in providing coding education, and in EMR implementation support have allowed us to meet the challenges of this ever-changing medical world. I highly recommend Strategic Solutions—they provide reliable, approachable, and honest services.”

Mary Annn • Office Manager, Capital Eye Care

“Our high Medicaid population required us to attest that we have a Corporate Compliance Program. Strategic Solutions came in and helped us organize our current efforts and formalize an ongoing Compliance Program that meets the state and federal guidelines. They simplified a process that would have taken us weeks to accomplish on our own.”

Mohawk Valley Orthopedics

“We knew our billing was not being done properly. We hired Strategic and they corrected and streamlined our billing process and improved our collections. Our claims get paid with very little delay due to the efficient processes they have in place. This company has allowed us to practice medicine most efficiently and still be confident that we are being paid correctly.”
