National Medical Billing Services’ Workplace Flexibility Philosophy Enables Employee to Achieve Doctor of Medicine Degree

NMBS promotes and supports all of its staff in advancing their professional development skills as well as realizing their personal aspirations which in turn enhances workforce productivity, organizational loyalty, and employee retention

National Medical Billing Services, a national healthcare revenue cycle management company that specializes in servicing ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and their affiliated surgeons, announced today one of its employees, who has been with National Medical since its inception in 2003, earned his medical degree while concurrently juggling his full-time responsibilities on both work and home fronts.

Brent Miller was part of the original team assembled by National Medical and worked as a coder at the St. Louis headquarters while concomitantly pursuing completion of his undergraduate studies. He subsequently applied for and was accepted to medical school in Pennsylvania. The company provided the means for Miller to work remotely with a flexible schedule while pursuing his medical degree. The result? Dr. Miller began his general surgery residency at Oakwood South Shore Medical Center in Trenton, Michigan in June.

“I would not have been able to attend medical school without National Medical’s help,” declared Miller. “I can’t imagine another company allowing me the schedule flexibility to finish two degrees and move out of state, all the while being extremely supportive of my goals.”

National Medical is one company willing to seek ways to invest in its employees like Dr. Miller to accomplish both corporate and workforce aspirations while ensuring operational continuity and personnel retention. Interestingly, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released on June 11 of this year its numbers reflecting that employee “Quit” rates have actually increased throughout the Midwest as of April 2013.

“We are proud of the hard work Dr. Miller put in, both at National Medical and in achieving his dream of graduating from medical school,” says Nader Samii, Chief Executive Officer. “We understand the value of retaining good employees—it reduces costs, boosts morale and productivity, and is all-around just smart business. We truly support employees who are trying advance their careers through higher education or other training.”
