Our Family

QMS Logo

QMS began delivering business and clinical solutions to dialysis providers in 1976. Since that time, providers have been under increasing pressure to improve the quality of patient care while simultaneously facing declining reimbursement and mounting regulatory complexity. The QMS team has worked diligently to help customers meet these challenges by offering exceptional software and providing the best training, service, and support in the industry.

Infian Logo

Originally founded in 1981, Infian started in renal care software in 1986. Infian’s team of dialysis experts deliver and support the TIME System and provide revenue cycle management solutions for dialysis facilities across the US and its territories. The team at Infian is proud of the excellent support, training, and software we provide our clients as the renal care market constantly evolves with shifts in regulatory requirements and clinical care. The name INFIAN describes the nature of our business: information management; further the name also implies the term ‘infinite’ which conveys the vast expertise and capabilities our associates possess to manage critical information.

Clinical Computing Logo

Clinical Computing has over 30 years’ experience of developing clinical information systems across the world. The company originally developed a product called PROTON, a market leader in the UK and the US. Today, it provides a web based Electronic Medical Records solution called clinicalvision, designed specifically for the renal market and the management of clinical records for CKD, ESRD and transplant patients.

Mediqal Logo

Mediqal H.I. was formed in October 2006 by the combination of the eMEDRenal development and support team from Mediqal Ltd and Health Informatics International. Its renal EHR system, eMEDRenal, has been in continuous clinical use since 1999 and is installed in multiple sites across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

Client Testimonials

QMS has built a very powerful application. Their software has the critical features needed to properly submit dialysis claims plus all the bells and whistles.  The QMS system pre-submission process of error and data checks ensure we submit clean claims. The post claim submission reports help us stay organized and track claims so we can manage cash flow. Their professional customer service team is always there for any questions or problems. We found the QMS system to be better than we anticipated from the demo.

Our experiences with QMS as a dialysis billing software vendor has benefited our company.  Not only are they a great company to work with, they are always up to date with industry changes. Since this was new software for us, at times the setup seemed overwhelming. The QMS staff was readily available and very knowledgeable which helped ease the transition; they always explained the reason why certain processes were needed.  Today we see the benefits.

I have personally used QMS software since 1989. Therefore, it was an easy decision choosing Focus as our billing software system when we started National Renal Care in 2016.  QMS offers a far superior dialysis billing product, is always up to date with industry changes, and implements them in a timely manner. Focus has excellent reporting capabilities and interfaces effectively with multiple EMRs.  The QMS staff is friendly and knowledgeable and offers outstanding support.  We look forward to a continued long term working relationship.
