About Paradigm Medical Management
One that serves as a pattern or model. A set of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.
Paradigm first appeared in English in the 15th century, meaning "an example or pattern," and it still bears this meaning today: Their company is a paradigm of the small high-tech firms that have recently sprung up in this area. Since the 1960s, paradigm has been used in science to refer to a theoretical framework, as when Nobel Laureate David Baltimore cited the work of two colleagues that "really established a new paradigm for our understanding of the causation of cancer." Researchers in many different fields often saw themselves as working in or trying to break out of paradigms. Applications of the term in other contexts show that it can sometimes be used more loosely to mean "the prevailing view of things."

The consulting business, Paradigm Medical Management, started in 2003 with Accounts Receivable Management, Billing and Collections, Chart Auditing, training seminars and workshops for physicians and their staff. The home-based business expanded and eventually required hiring employees and sub-contractors. No longer able to work from home, the sole proprietor and CEO, Marian Capper, found it necessary to find a professional office environment for employees, a place to meet with her clients, and provide training. This was the beginning of a 'paradigm shift' in her business expansion.
