Hockessin, DE: Over the past decade patients, even with insurance, have become responsible for a higher portion of their medical costs. PayRight provides physician practices with workflow and tools to improve patient out-of-pocket collections and reduce collection costs. PayRight will be deployed to the offices of the employed physicians of the Blue Ridge Medical Group (BRMG) across a wide variety of specialties and locations. Nearly 100 primary care physicians, physician specialists and extenders are part of BRMG across a three-county region.
Jason Clapsaddle, BRMG’s Director of Operations, said, “Having worked with PayRight over the last year, we are enthusiastic about being able to measure the effectiveness of our collection processes and improve the options available to our patients. We especially like being able to customize the rules and workflow to match the needs of our patients and practices. We want to focus on taking care of our community not managing patient collections, and PayRight helps facilitate that process.”
“PayRight is excited about the opportunity to work with Blue Ridge to deliver new tools to help both the provider and patients improve the collection process, said Jim Bridges, President and CEO of PayRight Health. “By providing better information to patients and facilitating discussion about patient responsibility, PayRight helps physicians more effectively understand and collect what the patients owe. In addition to improving collections the healthcare system can more effectively manage the process and provider more choices to their patients.”
