I haven't posted on here in so long but I thought some of you could help me :)
I started my own home birth business last year and I am getting totally overwhelmed with the accounting/book keeping/billing stuff. I am good at being a midwife but the financial side of running a business is fairly new to me. I am reading some books and trying to give myself a crash course on running a business but most of them are geared towards retail business and not medical. I have a few questions if anyone wants to chime in with thoughts. Thanks so much!!
I am wondering if anyone uses quickbooks here? Do you find it helpful? Does it link to any type of medical billing software?
Does anyone use medical billing software here? Who do you use and do you like it?
Has anyone used the new iphone app Mobile Midwife for charting?
Sorry if these questions have been discussed already. I am going to read the archives now and see what I can dig up.
I appreciate the help :)
Bumping up for more input!

I have a 90% Medicaid practice and they are super easy to bill otherwise my clients are paying me and Im sending them a bill global- I have a connection to a chic who does billing, are you in FL? I ask because your name ends FL-
Just saw another post, im not on here much so Im just going to suggest if youre in FL, join the MAF midwifery association of FL -easy access to the FB page with quick replies and access to other midwives around the state re all kinds of questions <3
In our area, many midwives seem pleased with Larsen Billing Service - they handle the accounting side and may be able to help you with getting insurance payments, if yu're not already accepting insurance.
I'm planning to use a lady who used to work at the birth center where I apprenticed. She has also worked for Cigna and charges less than Larsen billing.

No clue on the billing software stuff myself...but I'm a super slow practice and therefore don't find I need that (at this point anyway).
I have heard/read some good things about mobile midwife, it looks pretty user friendly :)
There's this Florida company that does insurance billing (I've heard good things about them): http://expressclaims.org/services/midwife-benefits-form/
