The professionals at Laurel Mountain Research/Hill Country Practice Management have been in business since 1995, and have over 30 years experience in the health care practice management industry. For over 15 years we have been involved in direct management support of physicians and other health care professionals in central Texas.
Starting in Austin, Texas our first service offering was assisting health care providers' offices with their patient and insurance billing.These services were originally offered under our Hill Country Practice Management brand name to highlight the focus on management of the office’s accounts receivable and other business functions. Our approach has been to offer a turnkey solution involving our staff taking over the business office functions of the practice, while at the same time providing immediate access to data to the provider and staff. Our software of choice in providing these services was and continues to be Medisoft Patient Accounting.
As our business and our experience with medical billing software grew, we decided to become a reseller for Medisoft. We added the Laurel Mountain Research brand name for that purpose. Our software sales business has now become about equal to our accounts receivable management services business. With the coming of EHR, we believe that software sales and more specifically “total solution integrated software and hardware sales will become the largest part of our business.
Improvements in technology have allowed us to now provide our services throughout the state of Texas and in several out of state locations across the country. Our primary office remains in Austin, Texas, but we also have a satellite office in Burleson, Texas in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex and a representative who is located in Edinburg, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley.
LMR & HCPM provide products in a wide variety of areas: practice management software (NDC Medisoft), medical practice management, medical billing services, coding and fee schedule analysis, and staff training for medical billing systems and appointment scheduling.
