TRIARQ Health Integrates with ClearGage to Improve Patient Payments
Troy, Michigan (5/14/2019) – TRIARQ Health, a national physician practice management and value-based solutions company, has announced their integration with ClearGage, LLC, a leading provider of patient payment technology and financial services. This integration will provide TRIARQ Health clients access to a suite of payment and engagement solutions to improve patient experience.
This new integration will give TRIARQ clients the ability to send text or email payment notifications through ClearConnect™, ClearGage’s automated patient engagement engine. With just a few clicks, patients can easily view and pay their statements straight from their smartphone or tablet. Additionally, patients with higher balances are automatically offered patient payment options that allow them to pay for their care over time in amounts that fit within their budget.
“Collecting payments from patients continues to be a common frustration for many practices across the country, especially with the rise of high-deductible plans. Patients are overwhelmed with medical debt and doctors and their staff are not used to asking for this payment directly.” said Mike Sappington, CEO of TRIARQ Health. “By partnering with ClearGage, we are able to improve the financial experience for both our doctors and their patients.”
According to a study by Deloitte, 82% of Americans own or have access to a smartphone and an increasing number use their device to make purchases or pay a bill. Despite this trend, medical practices primarily rely on sending two to three paper statements and wait to collect their money upwards of sixty to ninety days. By introducing mobile payment options, practices can collect more on patient balances and decrease the cost of collections.
“We’re a mobile society that is tethered to our smart devices” said Chip Hunziker, Founder and CEO of ClearGage. “An overwhelming majority of text messages are opened within seconds of being sent and when patients can view and pay their bill with a few clicks, payments skyrocket.”
