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).

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
IT organizations are moving to the cloud in hopes to approve efficiency, increase agility and save money. Migrating workloads might seem like a simple task, but what many businesses don’t realize is that application migration criteria differs across organizations, making it difficult for architects to arrive at an accurate TCO number. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Joe Kinsella, CTO of CloudHealth Technologies, will offer a systematic approach to understanding the TCO of a cloud application...

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyer belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are m...
WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world. The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Claus Jepsen, Chief Architect and Head of Innovation Labs at Unit4, will explore that in order to create distributed and scalable solutions ensuring high availa...
For financial firms, the cloud is going to increasingly become a crucial part of dealing with customers over the next five years and beyond, particularly with the growing use and acceptance of virtual currencies. There are new data storage paradigms on the horizon that will deliver secure solutions for storing and moving sensitive financial data around the world without touching terrestrial networks. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Cliff Beek, President of Cloud Constellation Corporation, d...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
