Embrace the dignitary

Douglas Kegler, CEO, founded the company CollaborateMD (formerly XGear Technologies) in 1999 just before publicly launching the industry's first Internet-based practice management and electronic medical billing software, ClaimGear.

In the mid 90's Doug saw that the healthcare community was in dire need of an improved practice management and medical billing solution. With years of experience as a computer programmer and software engineer in the healthcare sector, he knew that a better solution existed.

Kegler had begun writing several DOS and Windows-based dental and medical billing programs in 1989, but found a common problem with system built by software companies: medical practices and billing companies had to install, maintain, and support their own servers, databases, and connections with the clearinghouse or insurance companies, which greatly increased costs.

As his interest in finding a better solution turned into a determination to design and develop the software himself, Kegler paid the bills with a “day job” that was still supporting a Windows medical billing application written in Pascal for a large billing service company in Syracuse, NY.

“Our goal has been to continually provide customer's in the Health care industry an efficient solution through technology, innovation.”
