Boardman, OH (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
CBOSS, Inc., a recognized global technology and software developer leader, announced today it has entered into a new agreement with Capstone Health Alliance, Inc., a regional group purchasing organization based in North Carolina.
Capstone members include hospitals, continuum of care facilities, public health departments and pharmacies in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
Among the advantages CBOSS brings to Capstone members is its Central Payment Portal (CPP) Platform that automates the payment process and offers different methods to collect revenue, all in a safe, secure environment. CBOSS’ online secure payment processing shortens the revenue collection cycle and generates revenue faster.
“Efficient revenue cycle management is a top priority for all of us and we look forward to working with CBOSS and making its solutions available to our members,” says Tim Bugg, President and CEO of Capstone Health Alliance. “We are always pleased to offer expanded solutions to our members, and the CBOSS CPP solution is a secure, user-friendly option for our members to increase their revenue, lower transaction costs and boost patient satisfaction.”
“We are known for our expertise in the design and implementation of business process automation and secure e-payment solutions,” adds Jenny Hammond, Director of Operations at CBOSS, “and we are very excited about our new preferred vendor status with members of the Capstone Health Alliance. We look forward to developing relationships with Capstone members as they learn about our e-payment processing and other services.”
CBOSS will conduct educational sessions to familiarize Capstone members with how CPP can build efficiencies into their operations through e-payment processing, electronic auditing, reporting and the importing of data.
CBOSS, based in Boardman, Ohio, delivers results to a range of clients in 20 states, plus Latin America.
One of CBOSS’ major strengths for all of its online payment clients is its specialized knowledge of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. The major credit card issuers created PCI compliance standards to protect personal information and ensure security when transactions are processed using payment cards.
To be PCI compliant, certain standards must be met: maintain a secure network; protect cardholder data; maintain a Vulnerability Management Program; implement strong access control measures; regularly monitor and test networks; and maintain an information security policy.
CBOSS has three certifications focusing on Information Security:
From enterprise software solutions to managed services, CBOSS specializes in the design and implementation of portal solutions for e-payment processing, workflow automation and content management using industry-standard platforms and tools. Since 1994, over 700 businesses and government agencies have looked to CBOSS to deliver feature-rich services and solutions that are cost-effective, reliable and secure. CBOSS has renewed its Level I compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, which provides the highest levels of security for e-commerce and other e-payment processing services. CBOSS also achieved a new certification in globally accepted international accounting standards, the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagement (SSAE) 16 Type II.
