   Remaining independent is more difficult now than ever before. MedChi, the Maryland State Medical Society, created MedChi Network Services (MNS) to confront this challenge. MNS offers management services to improve practice revenue. The goal is to give physicians and their staff the tools they need to run a successful business, without the additional costs experienced by large groups and health systems.

  We offer a full suite of practice services, including: revenue cycle management/billing; EHR selection, implementation, and optimization; marketing; compliance support; full-service practice management; and general consulting. We believe practices thrive when physicians are given clear and actionable data about their business and their patients.

   MNS is Maryland’s largest state-designated Management Services Organization and a sub-recipient of the federal Regional Extension Center grant. We provide highly flexible and functional approaches to optimize the business side of your practice. We also helped form seven physician-led Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) through the Medicare Shared Savings Program. MNS provides complete operations and management services to three ACOs in Maryland.


   Contact us to learn how we can provide credible, physician-centric resources to help your independent group thrive.
