White Paper - The Stats On Patient Financial Engagement Skip to Main Content

How The Statistics Show Patient Financial Engagement Is What Everyone Wants

70% of providers said it takes more than 30 days to collect payment after a patient encounter, and 74% said it takes more than one statement to collect. Part of the problem is that 75% of providers are still relying on paper and manual processes for collection. However, this practice doesn’t line up with what patients actually want. Providers want to get paid timely and patients want more convenience.

    Automate Payments Before and After the Visit

    Automating payments before and after the visit can save healthcare staff a lot of time and frustration. Not only that, but collecting payments automatically means the practice won’t have to sell an uncollected payment to a debt collector just to receive a fraction of the actual bill.
