March 16, 2021 | PRNewswire | DURHAM, N.C. and Portland, Ore. — Clinicient Insight, a market-leading rehab therapy platform for intelligent clinical care and accelerated organizational growth, and PatientPay, a patented provider of innovative patient billing and payment solutions, have announced an exciting integrations partnership to give Clinicient clients an easier way to manage healthcare financial obligations. The partnership will provide an omni-channel strategy with text, email, and paper statements via a seamless integration between PatientPay into the Insight Billing platform.
“Clinicient’s focus in finding this partner was to deliver the best healthcare payment solution available to our clients and their patients for better payment outcomes along with increasing patient engagement. According to Cain Brothers, ‘Only 17 percent of patients receive a medical bill electronically, despite over 70 percent preferring electronic statements’,” said T. Kent Rowe, Clinicient’s CEO. “PatientPay’s specialized patient billing and payment solution delivers results by making healthcare payments easier for patients from the time they schedule their therapy services to the time they pay their bill.”
The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) reports that the typical medical group sends, on average, 3.3 paper statements before payment is secured. PatientPay reduces the number of paper statements required to capture patient payments by providing online electronic bills and notifying patients via text and email. In fact, 80% of PatientPay’s payments occur prior to ever generating a single piece of paper. The United States Postal Service (USPS) acknowledges that 60 percent of Americans pay their bills online today. This number is expected to grow with the increase in USPS postage rates last year.
“The team at Clinicient understands what is really important to their clients—patient satisfaction.” said Tom Furr, PatientPay’s CEO. “Like PatientPay, they believe that electronic, dynamic communication capabilities, and easy-to-use patient billing and payment solutions deliver results that are 2 to 3 times better than traditional paper-based billing practices. We are pleased to be working with Clinicient to provide a patient billing and payment solution that drives higher outcomes for their clients.”
PatientPay has been focused on electronic patient communications from inception. Learning how to effectively communicate via text and email has allowed them to not only assure compliance with TCPA and CFPB, but drive substantial engagement from patients. Currently, 65% of users access PatientPay via mobile device, with the remaining 35% connecting via desktop or laptop computers.
