The Patient is the New Payor!

How to Dramatically Improve Patient Revenue While Increasing Patient Satisfaction

Wednesday, December 12th @ 1:00PM CST / 2:00PM EST

Jonathan Wiik, Author of “The Patient is the New Payor” teams up with Tom Brekka, CEO of VestaCare, creator of the VestaPay Time of Service Patient Payment Management System, in presenting a ground-breaking approach to transforming how to secure patient revenue while improving patient satisfaction.

With patients now responsible for as much as 35% of hospital revenues, yet paying their balances only 15% of the time, there is a financial crisis of significant proportion occurring in hospitals across the country. No longer can conventional approaches of collecting co-pays and a portion of deductibles at time of service, then “chasing” the patient after the insurance is billed and a statement generated, suffice to solve this problem. 100% of the patient’s known and unknown liability must be secured at time of service or before. How is that possible you might ask? When you can “prevent patient revenue losses by securing 100% of known and unknown liability at time of service you make dramatic improvements in patient revenues generated”, says Tom Brekka.

This webinar session will show you proven solutions that apply unique and powerful technologies and human behavior management approaches to solve this problem. We’ll end the webinar with a fast-paced Q&A. This will be a highly educational, leading edge presentation you don’t want to miss. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you there.

Date: December 12, 2018 (Wednesday)

Time: 1:00 PM Central Time / 2:00 PM Eastern Time

Featuring: Jonathan Wiik, Principal - Healthcare Strategy, TransUnion Healthcare; Tom Brekka, CEO, VestaCare; & Ray Chase, VP National Accounts, VestaCare
