Leading Technology Executive to Drive Technology Efficiency and Growth
DURHAM, NC – PatientPay, the leading patient payments partner for specialty care, announced it has appointed Vikram Natarajan as chief technology officer. In this role Mr. Natarajan will lead the technology teams while playing a key role in shaping PatientPay’s future technology innovations. Additionally, he will champion the latest technology
solutions as PatientPay continues its growth.
PatientPay’s patents and software leverage existing central billing office infrastructure to bill and reconcile payments using existing insurance claims – ultimately simplifying the entire billing process for specialty medical groups and revenue cycle management (RCM) companies. This architecture enables PatientPay to align patient bills with their insurance carrier’s explanation of
benefits (EOB) and provide flexible payment options, while simultaneously integrating analytics that provide smarter patient payment collection strategies. PatientPay’s platform gives its clients
visibility into their entire patient payment strategy, starting with eligibility and estimation, and ending with early out call centers.
“I look forward to driving PatientPay’s technology platform which addresses the patient billing and payment challenges that face specialty medical groups,” said Mr. Natarajan. “My prior experience in the healthcare payment industry gives me the background to tackle the inefficient paper-based approach that PatientPay’s offerings clearly solve for.”
Most recently, Mr. Natarajan has served as the chief technology officer at Medfusion where he played a key role in their technology transformation. His healthcare experience includes prior roles at MDLIVE, Health Decision, and Pogohealth where he helped build and deploy scalable healthcare solutions. Mr. Natarajan holds a Masters degree from both Birla Institute of Technology and Georgia Southwestern State University.
“PatientPay has recently secured a number of large RCM agreements including The SSI Group, which in 2017 processed $1.5 trillion in healthcare payments. So our need to continue to build our leadership team is very important,” said Tom Furr, CEO of PatientPay. “We are very fortunate to have Vikram join our team as his past experience in scaling businesses to achieve
their growth objectives is remarkable.”
