Philadelphia Medical Billing, Credentialing
Medwave is pleased to offer our medical billing and credentialing services to healthcare professionals in the City of Philadelphia, PA and surrounding communities.
In 1843, a student at the “med school of the University of Pennsylvania,” as he called it in a letter to a friend, professed Philadelphia “decidedly the city of the Union for doctors, the facilities for study making it a perfect little Paris.”
The comparison indicated the prominence of the French capital at the time for bedside teaching and anatomical dissection. By that point in the mid-nineteenth century, Philadelphia had become the nation’s foremost medical city, know especially for its wealth of opportunity for medical education.
Even in the period of decline in the early decades of the twentieth century, Philly’s medical institutions never lost their reputation for the highest quality training of medical students, residents, nurses and pharmacists. In fact, the attraction grew as the major centers expanded.
By the later decades of the twentieth century, “health care” and healthcare related education became the region’s dominant industry. White coats, short and long, continue as a persistent visible attribute of the city and region.
Today, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is the flagship hospital of Penn Medicine and is located in the University section of the city. It consistently ranks as one of the top hospitals in the country and is the oldest university-owned teaching hospital in the United States.
Two other renowned medical institutions, Einstein Healthcare Network and Jefferson Health recently announced that the Federal Trade Commission would no longer challenge the merger of the two medical systems. This will expand Jefferson to 18 hospitals, improve health education and research opportunities in the region.
Southeast Pennsylvania includes more than 15,000 practicing physicians and has 40 licensed acute care facilities with 38 emergency rooms. Furthermore, the greater Philadelphia area encompasses a diverse line-up of behavioral health organizations, rehabilitation and other specialty hospitals, a mixture of both owned and independent practice groups and a number of accountable care organizations.
Managing the overall administration and reimbursement for all these medical facilities and practitioners is definitely not an easy task. That’s why Medwave is offering its expertise in medical billing and credentialing to the range of healthcare professionals in the Philadelphia area.
