Nyack Hospital in New York has selected Convergent Revenue Cycle Management, Inc. to help increase payment for the delivery of healthcare services from self-pay patients and patient residual balances after insurance. Using the latest patient-focused contact center technologies, Convergent will be enhancing the patient experience while increasing recoveries from Nyack’s self-pay patient demographic. Convergent is recognized across the nation as a leading provider of healthcare revenue cycle management and patient access solutions serving hundreds of healthcare providers across the nation.
“Self-pay patient accounts are often the most difficult to collect and take a considerable amount of time and resources,” says Derek Pickell, CEO of Convergent’s healthcare division. “In addition, many of our healthcare provider clients are experiencing exponential growth in their patient pay accounts receivables, resulting in the need for a healthcare business partner that specializes in relevant patient contact center and patient collection solutions. Driven by the latest technology in healthcare revenue cycle management, our self-pay program will help Nyack Hospital enhance patient communications and increase patient satisfaction, all while maximizing patient pay reimbursement and reducing bad debt.”
