ABOUT OUR FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT
Yvonne S. Gates-Perry is Founder and President of Physicians’ Management Services. While she was working at Lewis and Clark Community College in the late 1980’s as the Student Loan Officer, she was contacted by a relative, Wanda Harvey, who worked as a surgical technologist at Wood River Township Hospital. Wanda shared that while they were doing a surgery case, the anesthesiologist asked everyone in the operating room if they knew of anyone who could be his office manager. Wanda said that she spoke up and said that her cousin, who worked at LCCC, knew computers. Yvonne told Wanda that knowing computers and working as an office manager in a physician’s office are very different. However, since Yvonne embraces challenges, she met with Dr. Eddie Lin at his office in East Alton, Illinois. And as they say, the rest is history. Later the next year, inspired by her father, Mr. Willie Gates, to use her expert knowledge, high moral values, and endless fortitude, Yvonne started this company in Alton, Illinois on April 1, 1990. Yvonne is stimulated by the caring spirit of healthcare providers. She is motivated to make healthcare practical for patients, providers, and families. Yvonne is responsible for technology solutions, research, and development of potential client’s needs, as well as corporate developments.
As our Leader, this means that Yvonne advocates and inspires the way forward, turning vision into reality. Spending her professional career in the medical field and around the medical insurance industry facilitated the creation of Physicians’ Management Services. She stays up to date with the latest changes in the billing ecosystem by attending yearly conferences, as well as keeping up to date with changes announced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Over the past three decades, Physicians’ Management Services has provided consulting services to multiple physicians’ practices and healthcare facilities. Also, our company has supplied medical billing services and training to individuals, caregivers, clinics, medical professionals, medical facilities, and governmental and nonprofit agencies through these years.
We have offered medical coding and billing training to several candidates in our office in a classroom setting, and now, as of May 2020, we are offering this training online in our virtual classroom. We have the ability to train in subject matter for the entire revenue cycle, including patient access, eligibility and benefits, claim submission, application of payments/adjustments, and collections. Prospective students will learn by adapting successfully to changing business climates, and it will self-motivate them to accept and embrace changing business goals. We strive to offer the best service on medical coding and billing training via online in a virtual classroom.
