Atlanta – July 27, 2016: HealthAsyst, a technology company with a strong track record of products and services across the healthcare industry, today announced its partnership with Vantiv Integrated Payments, a Vantiv company (NYSE: VNTV), and a provider of payments technology and services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). This association is designed to bring smarter, faster and easier payments processing to healthcare facilities nationwide.
The partnership aims to effectively address the rising challenge of bad debts for healthcare facilities via offering payment options for patient responsibility collection. HealthAsyst’s self-service patient intake solution, CheckinAsyst, is now integrated with Vantiv Payment Gateway to provide more flexibility in payment options to help reduce bad debts.
“With payment responsibility increasingly shifting to patients, hospitals can no longer rely only on traditional methods of payment collection. They require out-of-the box, yet patient-friendly ways to reduce the size of the bad debt pie. We are joining forces to enable healthcare providers to get access to various options of collecting patient payments such as payment plans, card on file, and card swipe during the patient check-in process. We are keen to see the transformation this partnership brings to our customers in accelerating their revenue cycle management,” said Umesh Bajaj, CEO, HealthAsyst.
“Partnering with HealthAsyst allows us to offer more payment options for patients and make it easier and simpler for them to pay. Vantiv also provides more security protection for cardholders to continue to make the healthcare ecosystem more secure and compliant with the PCI guidelines,” said Matt Downs, Head of Business and Channel Development for Vantiv Integrated Payments.
