PatientPay to Integrate with NextGen via TSI Healthcare Connection

Leading Reseller Embeds Online Billing & Balance Management Capability into Practice Management Software

DURHAM, NC (July 30, 2013) - PatientPay, a provider of innovative healthcare billing solutions, today announced its online system will be integrated with NextGen© Practice Management by TSI Healthcare©, a leading reseller of the software.

"Our decision to partner with PatientPay was driven by a desire to deliver additional value to the practices we serve. PatientPay's integration brings additional functionality to NextGen Practice Management and ensures our clients can meet the needs of a growing generation of tech-savvy patients," said David M. Dickson Jr., TSI Healthcare's founder and president.

PatientPay eliminates the costly and complicated paper-based billing method used by the overwhelming majority of healthcare providers, drives down the expense and drives up the productivity associated with this activity by up to 50%. Since PatientPay reduces the time to payment in half, healthcare professionals realize improved cash flow and reduced accounts receivables.

By integrating PatientPay with NextGen Practice Management software, TSI Healthcare customers will be able to handle billing, collections and reconciliation as a fully automated process. PatientPay's patented process emulates the insurance claims procedure and operates with the same speed and certainty. Further, because it is integrated with NextGen, TSI Healthcare's clients do not have to change the way they work.

"The rise of high deductible health plans and consumers' growing preference for online bill paying are two significant changes underway in the healthcare industry that make the PatientPay-NextGen integration compelling for TSI Healthcare's clients," said Thomas Furr, PatientPay's CEO. "It is a combination that shows how even the best practice management software can be made even better for all involved. PatientPay is pleased to have partnered with TSI Healthcare to achieve this important enhancement to NextGen Practice Management, used by more than 80,000 physicians nationwide," Furr added.
