Patient satisfaction is a Key Performance Indicator that Healthcare providers track very closely today. Patient satisfaction affects clinical outcomes, patient retention, Net Promoter, and HCAHPS scores to name a few. In the age of consumerism, patients are in control of where they choose to receive care but are under significant financial constraints that come with serious health issues. With more financial liability shifting to the patient and increasingly higher deductibles, the patient out-of-pocket expenses add up, creating additional stress when patients want to focus on healing outcomes.
To alleviate financial stress, addressing the Provider’s self-pay initiatives is an integral part of the patient experience and the best place to start. Patients expect an approach to their care that provides end-to-end health and financial blueprint. In order to do this, health systems must leverage the right technology to achieve patient financial experience goals and recognizing revenue.
Given the strain patients already face, there’s no need for them to navigate billing hurdles as they seek to settle their account balances. A Provider’s willingness to offer payment options to fit the patient’s personal situation and preferences is a crucial step to leveraging an efficient Self-Pay strategy. Far too often the concern of patient payment plans revolves around patient fears such as application fees, credit score concerns, and affordability which can create even more problems and anxiety. Thankfully Curae™ alleviates all of these concerns with a simple one-minute, paperless process that does not impact the patient’s credit file.
