Health systems struggle to streamline and expedite payment services, resulting in unpaid bills and overtaxed resources. Attempting manual bill collection or relying on clunky, outdated payment solutions overcomplicates bill collection and disrupts patient care.

About the client

An integrated, nonprofit health system focused on helping patients achieve optimal care by offering convenient, accessible, and affordable care to its community. The organization consists of:

  • 7 hospitals
  • Telehealth capabilities
  • 125 off-site medical practices including primary care, specialty practices, outpatient settings, home care services, and skilled nursing and rehabilitations facilities

“We didn’t have tools in place to collect payments. Staff manually entered credit cards, and there was a lack of transactional accountability.”
