Falcon Helps
Quincy Medical Group QMG Soar
Quincy Medical Group (QMG) is an affiliate of UnityPoint Health, one of the largest
non-denominational integrated health systems in the country. A leading multi-specialty group practice in the Midwest, QMG encompasses over 140 physicians and providers practicing in 27 medical and surgical specialties. After switching Patient Accounting System vendors to Epic Systems a year ago, QMG leadership discovered a disconnect between existing operational practices and new technical workflows.

Falcon kicked off work with Quincy Medical Group in March with a comprehensive, integrated operational and technical professional billing assessment. During the assessment, Falcon delivered a series of recommendations and implemented immediate solutions. As an example, Falcon executed the redesign of critical elements of QMG’s patient statement, resulting in a 50% decrease in average self-pay call times and qualifying an additional 7,323 collectable accounts for statement delivery. 

Falcon’s approach to bringing technical configurations into alignment with operational functions resulted in clarified patient bills, improved workflow efficiencies, and increased staff satisfaction.
