Patientco Achieves HFMA Peer Review Designation

The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed Patientco’s billing and payment platform using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, Patientco’s platform has been awarded the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation.  

Patientco empowers large health systems, across more than 2,000 locations, deliver superior financial care for patients. With Patientco, patients receive easy-to-understand, tailored billing communication through paper, email, and SMS text. Once engaged, patients have access to Patientco’s intuitive, self-service payment tools with affordable options such as payment plans or financing.

For health system employees, Patientco integrates with their Health Information System (HIS) and other revenue cycle management tools to support all pre-service, point-of-service and business office payments needs. Whether patients prefer online, self-service billing and payment options or require assistance from Health System staff, Patientco’s platform facilitates it all.

“We’re pleased to have Patientco’s billing and payment platform achieve the HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” said HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."

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. Health systems seeking a solution to manage patient payments and improve patient financial care need proven technology with a dedicated partner. Achieving this designation is a testament to the value Patientco delivers for our health system clients and their patients.”
