Medical Software Associates was originally known as Clinical Data Systems. Our business specializes in the support of computer systems and information technology for small and medium sized medical practices.
Clinical Data Systems was founded in 1991 by Gary Higbee as a spin off of his regional forms company, the Association Connection. This company was a supplier of specialized forms with a focus on the medical industry. Gary saw an opportunity to combine his over 25 years of computer knowledge with a good practice management software system. At that time the company became an authorized dealer for Medical Manager. Although the representation of Medical Manager product ended in July of 2003, the company still supports many sites comprised of more than 300 providers across its marketing area. This support is provided by our staff in Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tennessee and Louisville, Kentucky.
In 2003 we began operating the company under Medical Software Associates which now employs 11 people serving customers in the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Georgia, Alabama, Michigan, South Dakota and Rhode Island. That same year we became authorized to represent the MicroMD product which provides practice management and electronic records. We also represent and support EDI ClaimManager, Aprima, DRS, and MDsuite.
Our focus is to offer and support the best products in our service areas for medical practices. The scope includes practice management applications, electronic medical records systems, document imaging software, automated appointment confirmations solutions, electronic data interchange (EDI) services, as well as electronic claims managements systems and services. In addition to our distinctly medical products we offer complete computer network installation and support, actively monitored backup, antivirus, and other solutions.
We provide ongoing customer service, maintenance, support and training for all the products we offer.
