Partnership improves patient engagement and expedites payments for providers
Sunbelt Health Partners, an expert in increasing revenue for hospitals and specialty physician practices from international healthcare accounts receivables, announced today its partnership with Flywire, a high-growth vertical payments company.
The partnership will enable Sunbelt Health Partners to seamlessly deliver an end-to-end patient payment experience, focusing on the pre-bill registration experience. It offers convenience, transparency, and control for patients while modernizing, enabling, and securing the international and domestic payment process. With the partnership, Sunbelt HP’s Pre-Bill Patient solution deployed during registration, proactively collects the patients’ accurate billing information, captures communication preferences and seamlessly connects the patient to the Flywire payment portal to offer secure payment options and personalized payment plans.
“We are in unprecedented times with the global COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, it is imperative for patients to have the ability to register their payment information before their health visits, to better comply with our new social distancing practices,” said Matt Vines, executive vice president, Sunbelt Health Partners. “Our partnership with Flywire comes at the perfect time to help simplify and streamline healthcare billing operations, giving hospitals and practices the ability to capture payments faster and reduce denials without sacrificing the patient payment experience. Patients receive the flexibility and clarity they need and deserve, and providers gain greater transparency into costs.”
“The partnership between Sunbelt Health Partners and Flywire meets both patient and provider demand for a more personalized, responsive payment experience,” said John Talaga, EVP and GM of Flywire’s healthcare business. “Since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Flywire has been adapting quickly to provide new solutions that ease the financial burden on patients and decrease bad debt for health systems, such as lower installment payment plans and COVID-19 relief payments. We know that we have a great partner in Sunbelt Health and are looking forward to ongoing collaboration to improve patient engagement and affordability.”
