PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

Confidential, Bristol, PA

Consultant

Responsibilities:

  • Developed and implemented a Microsoft Access database for Accounts Receivable.
  • This system was developed from Source Documents (Billing Sheets) and check details from the Insurance Provider.
  • The database was fully normalized and included such information as date of service, amount due, paid, service type, therapist, check number, client, and invoice. System was upgraded to add a client demographic capability and a system for accounting for Medical Records Revenue.
  • This system was developed out of the accounting matching process of source documents against checks to reconcile that all that was billed was paid.
  • A JAVA application was written to maintain an Address Book containing demographics information.
  • Numerous reporting functions were developed to list therapist clients, list services provided, and other various audit functions.
  • I managed Accounts Payable and General Ledger by loading bank information into Quickbooks. I produced Profit and Loss Statements and Balance Sheets for tax preparation and expense tracking.
  • I prepared Corporate Tax Returns for Confidential from 2011 forward.
  • Electronically collected all manual forms into Microsoft Word and used macros to produce client charts.
  • Terminated lease for Canon printer, replacing it with a purchased printer to eliminate monthly payments.
  • Removed old printer and installed new printer into Confidential Network.
  • Maintained and upgraded Confidential Network for all PC’s.
  • Upgraded phone system/internet from Verizon to Comcast, this provided voice mail capability which was non-functional on our old leased system.
  • This also reduced our monthly cost by $130 per month. We then replaced our leased phone system with a purchased phone system which eliminated quarterly lease payments and provided a yearly savings of over $2400.
  • I was solely responsible for the oversight of the technical installation of the new phone/internet system and the installation of the new phones.
  • We eliminated redundant functions such as Confidential Transportation when Bucks County Transport provided transportation at no cost.
  • We decided to upgrade the call screening process to the clinical director, since a clinically qualified person was required to manage new client screening and process current client needs.
  • This allowed us to eliminate the previous person performing this function providing a much smoother assimilation of new clients and more qualified handling of current clients needs.

Used: MICROSOFT ACCESS, EXCEL, WORD, POWERPOINT, QUICKBOOKS, JAVA, FORTE, NETBEANS, and SQL to deliver various clinical initiatives.

The process would then call an assembler timer module which was cloned from another system to put itself to sleep when there was no more work to be processed.
