Worker’s Compensation Goes High Tech

Two Santa Barbarans Create Software That Makes Worker’s Comp Billing Easy


Longtime Santa Barbara residents Sarah Moray and Catherine Montgomery have created the only online billing system that provides services to worker’s compensation patients and the doctors who treat them.

After nine years of helping doctors manage their billing and being consultants for medical providers, Moray and Montgomery realized that there was no billing software out there that dealt with the complexity of the California worker’s compensation system. So they teamed up and created DaisyBill, a system that speeds up and simplifies the process.

“There are no billing systems out there that tackle the thousands of laws that are involved with worker’s compensation. There are tons of special rules and regulations, and now there will be new laws going into effect in October, making California worker’s compensation even more complicated,” explained Moray. “DaisyBill combines thousands of laws into one system, knows how to bill, and will do it for you.”

Moray added that the response from doctors has been extremely positive, saying, “If doctors continuously don’t get paid properly for their services, they are less inclined to treat injured workers. This way, the doctors get paid much faster, and the workers are able to get the proper treatment they need.”

Earlier this year, Moray and Montgomery were selected from a pool of 300 applicants to be a part of the Blueprint Health technology accelerator program. The accelerator program is a three-month intensive program that assists promising new businesses in finding customers and capital. Only eight other applications were accepted into the program, and Moray and Montgomery are two of only five women in the group of 21 business founders.

Moray said that the duo has faced many challenges as women in the male-dominated tech start-up industry. “I’ve never been one of those people who always thought there was that glass ceiling, but now that I’ve experienced it first hand, I know its definitely still there. When you are at a mixer and one of the three or four women there, it can be very difficult to break in,” said Moray, “Its actually surprising how difficult it can be. But we have a lot to bring to the technology workplace, and I think DaisyBill will really fill a void in the market and make a difference.”
