Fabulous Things in February!

Employer Excellence.

EMPLOYER EXCELLENCE AWARD

 

On February 12, the Wichita Technical Institute presented Optometric Billing Solutions with their Employer Excellence Award in recognition of the work we do to support their Medical Billing and Coding program.  One-third of the OBS staff are graduates of WTI.  Brooke sits on their advisory board, and we serve as an externship site for some of their top students. OBS is honored to partner with WTI and are proud of our certified billers who are graduates of this outstanding program.

While WTI gives their students excellent training in medical billing and coding, when we hire one of their graduates we continue to expand their experience and knowledge. All new billers at OBS go through a rigorous four week training program designed to make them experts in the field of optometric billing.  They must also learn very specific, proprietary billing processes to ensure accounts are worked correctly, efficiently, and timely.  After classroom training, all new staff members work with a mentor for another four weeks.  Mentors continue to monitor their performance and answer questions as they begin to work for our doctors, and new staff do not finish this training process until they can demonstrate a 95% accuracy rate or higher.  But to be fair, staff training never really ends.  All billers at OBS are assigned to a senior billing manager for continued help and support, and each month we provide in-service education to keep our billers abreast of changes in the industry.

Thank you, WTI, for recognizing Optometric Billing Solutions with the Employer Excellence Award, and we accept this honor on behalf of our staff.  We appreciate the strong education WTI has given so many on our billers and commit ourselves to continue providing our team members with the tools they need to be the best in our field!   For we know the tremendous success OBS has enjoyed rests in the high caliber of work and dedication of our staff!
