Encoda, LLC Announces New CEO with Appointment of Veteran Healthcare IT Executive Michael Kallish

Revolutionary medical billing platform provider welcomes new Chief Executive Officer to spearhead growth and continued innovation

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Encoda, LLC announced today that veteran healthcare IT executive Michael Kallish has joined the company as Chief Executive Officer. Kallish brings with him more than 25 years experience in leading health IT companies through rapid growth, product innovation, and industry-leading customer satisfaction. Company co-founder and former CEO William (Bill) Cox will assume the role of President and Chief Technology Officer. Since its founding in 2006, Encoda has established a loyal following of large medical groups and revenue cycle management outsourcing firms who rely on Encoda's patented, cutting-edge technology to transform their organizations and help them gain leadership positions.

"Michael is a highly experienced healthcare IT leader who shares our values and our focus on innovation, and he places the same strong emphasis as we do on the customer experience and providing a significant return on investment for each customer," said Cox. "Michael has spent his entire career helping physicians navigate the tortured financial processes of the medical practice back office. He is a natural cultural fit with Encoda, and has a clear vision for leading our company forward."

"Encoda has developed a revolutionary medical billing platform which enables customers to substantially grow their businesses while typically reducing back office staff by 25-30%," said Kallish. "This enables Encoda customers to deploy more resources to the point of care— a necessity in today's quality-of-care driven landscape. We have the capability to significantly improve the financial health of a medical organization or RCM outsourcing firm. I couldn't be more excited to join the Encoda team."

Kallish most recently served as Senior Vice President of Business Development for RemitDATA, Inc., a venture-funded, healthcare IT company focused on comparative RCM analytics. Prior to RemitDATA, Kallish led corporate development at Medical Present Value, Inc. (MPV) a healthcare IT company focused on developing SaaS-based RCM and patient access solutions. Kallish helped lead MPV through a period of dynamic organic and inorganic growth, including MPV's acquisition by UK-based Experian in 2011. Prior to MPV, Kallish held senior management positions at leading physician practice management and billing software companies such as WebMD Practice Services and Medical Manager Corp. (both now part of the Greenway Medical Technologies/Vitera organization).
