“The S1WG solution enhancements of V2.0 focus on enriching the social, mobile engagement which will only further benefit the patient in need and the compassionate sponsoring hospital," Michael Clark, CEO of Someone With Group.

Someone With Group (S1WG), a provider of secure, compliant, dignified patient crowdfunding solutions for hospitals and health systems, announced today major enhancements to its patent-pending technology platform. The new V2.0 enhanced functionality allows for secure mobile patient/contributor engagement and facilitates contributions from friends, families and affiliated interested third parties. Significant UI/UE (User-Interface/User-Experience) upgrades are also included in the new release, all with the express purpose to make it easier, more effective and purposeful for compassionate contributors to help patients pay their medical expenses.

S1WG is the only crowdfunding platform designed exclusively for healthcare, addressing the complexities of HIPAA while tackling the ever-limiting crowdfunding ‘black-eye’ of fraud. The Compassion Platform is HIPAA-compliant and meets anti-fraud regulations such as the Patriot Act, and Anti-Money Laundering through its rigorous back-end security and compliance tool set and process engineering standards that no other crowdfunding platforms meet today. In addition to these built-in security and healthcare compliance components, S1WG’s Compassion Platform provides the most useful and simple user-interface for patients to construct a meaningful, dignified and inspiring campaign. Directed to friends, families, their networks and through leading social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, compassionate contributors can support a medically-related campaign with confidence and peace of mind as to where and how their contributions are spent and how productive their generosity can be.

The S1WG solution provides health systems and their patients’ unique access to the4th and final currency to pay medical expenses. Today, payment options are limited to the government (Medicare/Medicaid), private insurance, and ever increasing self-pay. This new Compassion Platform features a hospital-sponsored, privately-branded crowdfunding tool which employs mobile, social and video engagement to support patient outreach and provides any contributor security and comfort in their directed giving, providing a productive way to answer the question; “How can I help?”

“The S1WG solution enhancements of V2.0 focus on enriching the social, mobile engagement which will only further benefit the patient in need and the compassionate sponsoring hospital by increasing the number of patients adopting this reality of crowd-sourcing and driving contributions from their campaigns to a higher success rate than the typical insecure non-compliant crowdfunding campaign(s) in market today,” stated Michael Clark, CEO of Someone With Group.

“Simply put, with each release of the Compassion Platform, we continue to accelerate the revolution of consumerism within healthcare whereby health systems adopting this approach are clearly aligned with their patients needs and now go beyond just their clinically focused experience by demonstrating a keen interest in their financial well-being too,” explained Mr. Clark. “We refer to it as our ‘compassion before collections’ approach for hospitals, and are delighted to offer this unique funding opportunity to the healthcare industry and move the needle on positive patient experience.”
