We Proudly Support
American Made
Products

Our focus on buying American goods and services is driven by our mission.

Buying American goods and services promotes the employment of Americans and legal residents. Employing Americans and legal residents of America, in communities all across the nation, helps promote the financial health of the patients and communities we serve, and so reduce the burden of medical bills upon them.

It is the right thing to do.

We have always wanted to be recognized for the industry leading results we deliver to our clients. So, when HFMA began offering the Peer Reviewed designation to companies in our industry, we were first in line to submit to the rigorous, eleven-step process. Current customers, prospects, and established experts in the industry were all given comprehensive information regarding our Government and Charity Program. This information was then compared against strict performance guidelines based on effectiveness, quality, usability, price, value, and customer support. Following our inaugural review in 2009, we were the first and only company in our industry to be honored with the Peer Reviewed designation for Government and Charity Programs. Every year since 2009, we have gone through the same rigorous eleven step process, and every year since 2009 we have retained our Peer Reviewed designation. We are committed to offering world class programs that bring value and innovation to the healthcare marketplace. With our Peer Reviewed designation, you don't have to take our word for it.
