QMS has a large and diverse customer base, ranging from individual facilities, multiple facility groups and dialysis clinics. More than 2,000 dialysis facilities use QMS solutions.
We asked some of the organizations we work with to describe the benefits they have gained.
Here is what they had to say:
Central Florida Kidney Centers, Inc. has been using the QMS software since 1999 and the QCS software for just over three years. QCS (clinical) has cut our billing time by 60%. In addition to furnishing our patient care staff with the clinical information they need. For us, QMS Focus and QCS is not only a tool for completing and maintaining the various facets clinical, billing and accounts receivable, we consider QMS Focus and QCS as a business partner in the operations of our business. We constantly use QMS Focus and QCS personnel as a resource in our day to day billing and collections operation. I have been impressed by QMS Focus and QCS personnel’s commitment and very happy with our overall business relationship.
Central Florida Kidney Centers, Inc.
As the first QMS Focus installation in New York in 2000, we faced daunting challenges both in building custom Medicaid templates unique to New York and in staff training in managing a full-featured billing and AR management package operating on a Windows platform.
QMS brought to bear all the technical and training assets necessary to work through our requirements. The result is a major improvement in cash flow and unparalleled reporting capability for senior management. Throughout a rapid expansion in centers and treatment volume during the past 4 years, QMS Focus has leveraged AR staff efficiency and driven down our per-treatment overhead.

Billing: It used to take us three weeks from the end of the month to process and send claims. Since we converted to QMS Focus, all claims are processed and sent electronically in less than four business days from the end of the month. This increased speed of claims processing significantly improved cash flow by allowing staff to spend less effort on processing last month's claims and more time on solving problematic accounts.
Reporting: QMS Focus eliminated nearly all contractual estimates since the application automatically adjusts the claims. The ability to sort and filter the data in multiple ways allows management to identify and prioritize staff collection efforts.

IDS has utilized QMS billing software for almost twenty years, due to the fact that the programs are designed specifically for the dialysis industry. QMS Focus offers a user-friendly billing package that provides an effective way to manage our A/R, while providing flexibility in report and claim template capabilities. This has been an important feature as we have expanded over the years.
We are especially excited to interface QMS Focus with QMS' clinical management application, QCS. This will allow for an even more thorough collection of charges and avoid any discrepancies between the billing and treatment records.
