MEDE AMERICA and Integrated Health-Net Systems today announced their technical alliance to bring Integrated’s `Patient Easy Pay’ accounts receivable elimination and cash management program to MEDE’s suite of EDI products and services.
Integrated’s automated tools address the special considerations of commercial and government reimbursement programs. In today’s complex healthcare payment system, a `one size fits all’ solution is insufficient. Integrated has various Easy Pay solutions, which can be custom-tailored to respond to each healthcare provider’s specific needs. With the Patient Easy Pay tools, such as signature-on-file, providers can get a commitment to a form of payment from those patients whose out-of-pocket expense is not known at the time of service. The payment card software system, which can be either integrated into management software systems or operated as a stand-alone Windows program, has the ability to automatically authorize card transactions when a patient’s out-of-pocket balances are finally determined. This makes collecting payments more timely and efficient for both the patient and the provider.
“Credit card processing, and especially Easy Pay, is a value-added service for our providers, enabling them to better manage patient payment,” stated Tom Staudt, Chief Executive Officer of MEDE AMERICA. “Our partnership with Integrated Health-Net Systems adds yet another dimension to the ways we can help our clients operate more efficiently and cost effectively. MEDE AMERICA’s goal i s to streamline electronic healthcare services with the most complete range of integrated transaction processing technology, networks, and databases.”
Max Young, President of Integrated Health-Net Systems, said “By combining the strength of MEDE AMERICA with Integrated’s Easy Pay system, we will bring extensive value to the services offered to the medical community. This is a program designed to be easily implemented, and with simple basic training of the provider’s staff, it can reduce their accounts receivable by at least 10% within 90 days. The program has already been implemented and proven effective in hundreds of hospitals and medical offices throughout the United States.”
Integrated Health-Net Systems is a service provider company devoted to evaluating and implementing creative payment card processing applications, along with accounts receivable management services.
