As a business owner and adviser on multiple layers of the health care industry, Doty has what might be a unique perspective locally. On one hand, he's senior principal/contractor of physician strategies and services for Thomson Reuters, a $14 billion international corporation. On the other, he's president and CEO of InstiComm, a three-year-old, seven-employee local software company serving medical businesses. He also is a part owner in a group of health clubs. From Doty's view, President Obama isn't to blame for what Doty refers to as the "ice jam" clogging economic progress in America. At least, Doty believes the divisions in Congress earn much more of the blame. "On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give President Obama a 2 or 3 when it comes to blame," Doty says. "I think he inherited a huge set of problems… I fault the divisions in the House and Senate, the polarization more than the president." Ideally, Doty said, the United States would elect a president that's a true fiscal conservative. But he says the nation hasn't had one since Ronald Reagan. "That would improve the position of the small business," he says. Being fiscally conservative himself, Doty says politically, the nation would benefit most by whichever combination of Democrats and Republicans, in the White House and Congress, best serves the country. And that could even include a Republican president without a Republican majority in Congress. "As a business owner, business adviser, whatever it takes to break this ice jam, I'm for," he says. With Obama's health care reform taking center stage in the national economic debate, Doty finds himself an opponent of mandated reform but a believer in national health care reform. He points out that the U.S. is the only industrialized nation without a national health care option and he believes the current system is not only unhealthy, but unsustainable. "I support a national health care option," he says, "but as an employer I want the choice. I don't want it mandated. "The U.S. has a health care cost per capita almost double the closest industrialized country, with life expectancy outcomes way down the list. Other than Mexico, we are the only country without some form of national health care." Doty said the largest drug companies and insurance companies have a stranglehold on health care, with 16 states - including Idaho - offering just two choices: Blue Cross and Blue Shield. "We need a national health care option to knock them out of control," Doty says. "It is an area I agree with President Obama's position." But the chaos in health care hasn't been bad for Doty's businesses. Quite the contrary. "For us it's been a great year because in health care, the more confusion and upheaval there is, the busier we are," he says.

The company, InstiComm LLC, has just three full-time employees now, but expects within a year to employ 35 to 40 people and to have 500 to 600 doctors using its product, says Jim Doty, its president and CEO and a longtime health-care industry consultant.

The software isn't intended to compete with the electronic medical records (EMR) systems now increasingly being installed in hospitals and used primarily to share patient charts with physicians and with other hospitals, says Doty.Rather than connecting a doctor to a hospital system, InstiComm's product connects a doctor to his or her office system, he says.Because of the expense and complexity of EMR systems, such networks typically aren't used to connect hospitals with independent doctor's offices, Doty says.
One of the biggest benefits of the software, he says, is that doctors can "post," or document for billing, their patient visits while making rounds.That, he says, greatly reduces the chance that a physician will forget to do a posting and lose billing revenue because of it.Traditionally, such postings are done using 3-by-5-inch cards that doctors carry around and take back to their offices, Doty says.
He says statistics suggest that mobile doctors lose 5 percent of their possible billings due to lost or forgotten postings.For some specialty practices, that can amount to $25,000 to $50,000 a year in lost revenue, he asserts.
Doty says the product isn't intended for physicians who see patients only in an office, or for internists or hospitalists who work for a hospital and have access to EMR systems.It's targeted mostly at specialists such as cardiologists, orthopedists, surgeons, and others, who must do rounds on patients away from their offices, usually at hospitals and skilled-nursing facilities.
The product doesn't take the place of computerized billing systems, but rather provides office staff with better information to key into such systems, Doty says."Doctors have a fear of messing with their billing system - we're not going to do that," he says.
InstiComm, however, does plan to market OfficeConnect to big makers of medical-office billing systems as a potential add-on, Doty says."A billing-software company could integrate OfficeConnect with its own software and sell it as a component," he says.
Mostly, though, InstiComm sees a big market with small practices that have just a handful of physicians.Doty says it's estimated that only about 17 percent of such groups have access to an EMR-type system."That means 83 percent of the market has nothing," he says.
