HARRISBURG, PA - Fairview Health Services, a multi -hospital and physician clinic health system headquartered in Minneapolis, MN., recently turned to HealthPay24 to support the recent deployment of its Epic Welcome Kiosks at many of its outpatient clinics.
Specifically, HealthPay24 seamlessly integrated with Epic’s Payment Gateway to give Fairview Health Services’ patients the ability complete the registration process immediately prior to their medical appointment and complete payment of their financial expectation.
Established in 2002, HealthPay24 is designed by and for healthcare providers wanting to efficiently process payments at the point-of-service. HealthPay24 was the industry’s first solution dedicated to processing healthcare point-of-service payments.
According to Dan Fuhrman, Vice President of Business Development at HealthPay24, the company’s technology integrates into the EPIC Generic Payment Gateway expanding HealthPay24’s integration with Epic to include the ability to process payments from Welcome Kiosks and Cash Drawer.
HealthPay24 specifically designed new technology for the Welcome Kiosks in order for patients to easily handle satisfying their financial expectation, while the automated system also continues to support Fairview’s financial reconciliation process. HealthPay24 allows for each patient payment to be simultaneously posted to Fairview’s accounts receivable and bank processor for comprehensive tracking.
Fuhrmann said that HealthPay24 also supports end-to-end encryption within the EPIC Gateway to ensure that all card payments remain securely encrypted until it reaches the processor.
