Benchmark Systems Selects PatientPay for Online Bill Pay Solution

Leading Integrated Medical Practice Management Solution Embeds Online Billing & Balance Capability into Software

DURHAM, NC (February 18, 2014) - Benchmark Systems, a leading Internet based provider of fully integrated medical practice management solutions, announced today that they will integrate PatientPay, a provider of innovative healthcare billing solutions into their practice management software.

"Our choice of PatientPay was driven by a desire to deliver additional value to our clients and meet the needs of a growing generation of patients who desire to pay their bills online," said Beth Koss, President at Benchmark Systems. “We know that to continue to lead, we need to continue to address patient balances, since this is clearly the path forward in our industry."

PatientPay eliminates the costly and complicated paper-based billing method used by the overwhelming majority of healthcare providers to drive down the expense and time it takes to collect patient balances. Since PatientPay reduces the time to payment in half, healthcare professionals realize improved cash flow and reduced accounts receivables.

By integrating PatientPay, Benchmark Systems' practices will now be able to handle billing, collections and reconciliation in a fully automated process. PatientPay's patented process emulates the insurance claims procedure and operates with the same speed and ease-of-use to automatically post payments. Further, because it is integrated directly in Benchmark Systems' software, their practices won't have to change their workflow.

"The rise of high deductible health plans and consumers' growing preference for online bill paying are two significant changes underway in the healthcare industry so we are pleased to be working with Benchmark Systems to provide a better solution for their practices," said Thomas Furr, PatientPay's CEO. "This partnership shows how even the best practice management software can be made better by offering automation that does not disrupt the practice's work flow."
