“As patient responsibility demands continue to rise, the revenue cycle process for healthcare providers has become increasingly complicated, and we are excited to work with such reputable organizations in the industry to address these ongoing challenges,” said Jeff Fountaine, director, healthcare strategy, Ingenico Group. “The healthcare industry is a great fit for Ingenico Group’s payment solutions because they enable a seamless and secure experience at all stages of the care cycle and simplify the payment collection process while increasing patient engagement and improving speed of service.”
Ingenico Group’s latest EMV-enabled and PCI-certified payment solutions allow healthcare organizations to capitalize on the following benefits:
- Shorten the revenue cycle with a simple way for patients to pay co-pays and other costs of care;
- Accept all the latest forms of electronic payment (including EMV, magstripe, and NFC/contactless) anywhere – in the waiting area, triage, examination room, or even at the bedside;
- Offer speed of payment, quality customer service, and secure transactions;
- Protect patient data and payments with industry-leading EMV support, PCI-compliant security and point-to-point encryption (P2PE); and
- Provide patients a fast and easy way to sign consent forms, verify demographics, and opt in for additional programs, such as screenings and flu shots during certain times of the year.
"We believe in the power of collaboration. We are thrilled to partner with Ingenico Group to present a comprehensive payment platform that increases access to payment options and is leading the evolution of healthcare payments,” said Clayton Bain, CEO of Salucro.
“As healthcare providers look to shorten their revenue cycle and increase patient engagement, one of the first places they’ll need to turn to is upgrading how they accept credit cards from pre-to-post service,” said Ken Blessing, EVP of HealthPay24. “By partnering with Ingenico Group, we’re able to deliver payment solutions to providers to help them securely process credit cards while minimizing their PCI scope.”
