(PRWEB) September 07, 2011
MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service, one of the largest emergency medical service providers in the Southeast, has announced they have implemented Zepherella’s PatientPaySM service, offering their patients online billing and payment services while staying focused on life saving services for the greater metro-Atlanta area.
PatientPay, an online service that gives healthcare providers a more effective way to allow their patients to pay their bills, was chosen to provide these services because of the intuitive and innovative way it will help MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service communicate with their 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, MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service is offering their patients a convenient payment option and helping drive efficiencies in their office.
As healthcare costs rise and high deductible plans become more prevalent, patients are responsible for a much greater portion of their healthcare bill. These growing out-of-pocket-charges mean healthcare providers and their patients are spending more time and resources dealing with these fees. With PatientPay, patients access an electronic statement that clearly outlines what they owe and allows them to pay online.
“When I started MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service, one of my goals was to be as efficient as possible, enabling my team to focus our energies on patient care instead of paper work. I am always looking for new ways to further this objective and felt it worth trying Zepherella after evaluating their solution. It’s our pleasure to be able to offer our patients this convenience without any additional costs or substantial work for our team,” says Peter E. Quinones, President and CEO of MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service.
“Sounds simple but our online payment solution is the only one in the industry to seamlessly plug into any billing system without any set up cost to providers,” said Tom Furr, CEO of Zepherella, Inc. “MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service saw our value and recognized that we could alleviate a number of their costs. It truly creates a real partnership.”
Consumers have come to expect online transactions that are so readily available in most other industries. PatientPay gives providers the solution 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.
