Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
Thomas Eye Group, a full service eye care provider with offices in eight locations in and around the greater Atlanta area, today announced the implementation of Clearwave Corporation’s PatientPay Module, an innovative online patient payment solution powered by Zepherella. PatientPay, which gives healthcare providers a much more effective way for patients to pay their bills, was chosen to provide these services because of the intuitive and innovative way it will help Thomas Eye Group communicate with their patients.

Consumers have come to expect online transactions that are so readily available in most other industries. PatientPay gives providers the solution that they need to automate their billing practices without any upfront or ongoing monthly fees. It is scalable to work with any practice regardless of size and provides a real benefit to a growing number of practices and patients.
“Our patients have been asking for an online payment solution that allows them to get electronic bills and pay online since this is becoming their preferred method for paying most bills today. After a stringent review, we elected to go with PatientPay based on its seamless integration with our practice management system. I believe PatientPay offers our patients value that will also help reduce our costs dramatically,” says Rodney Roeser, CEO of Thomas Eye Group. “We also like the fact we are helping out the environment by reducing paper, postage and the energy it takes to get paper bills mailed to our patients.”
By sending electronic statements and offering their patients a secure website where they can review and pay their bills with a credit or debit card, Thomas Eye Group is offering their patients a convenient payment option and helping drive efficiencies in their office. Each year, 19 billion statements are mailed in the U.S. consuming a tremendous amount of natural resources, Thomas Eye Group is now giving their patients a paperless billing option that will be more convenient for patients and will positively impact the environment.
“Thomas Eye Group is a premier eye care provider so we are very pleased to have been chosen by Rod and his team,” said Tom Furr, CEO of Zepherella. “We are also excited to extend our partnership with Clearwave who has built a solution that drives value to both practice and patient.”
“Thomas Eye Group is one of the most innovative practices we work with so PatientPay’s features and ability to plug into any practice management system seemed like a great fit for their online payment needs,” said Gerard White, CEO of Clearwave Corporation.
