Hello midwives!

 

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 :)

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/
