Despite being repetitive in nature, medical billing is an error-prone task. Unsurprisingly, medical institutions often outsource such a humongous undertaking to third-party service providers. That was the scenario before medical billing software programs and applications came into being.

Nowadays, there is a plethora of medical billing software deployable on-premise or cloud-based and available on different platforms such as Mac OS, Windows, and Linux.
