To help members make the best purchasing decisions for the organizations they serve, HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review composed of current Patientco clients, prospects who have not yet made a purchase, and industry experts.
“Being recognized by HFMA’s Peer Review program demonstrates our ability to provide better financial care to patients with our billing and payment platform,” said Bird Blitch, CEO of Patientco. “While we can always tell the market about Patientco’s value, it means so much more coming from the health systems actually using our software.
