HealthPartners Enlists Patientco for Epic Integrated Payment Processing

February 12, 2020 GMT

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 12, 2020--

HealthPartners, the largest consumer-governed nonprofit health care organization in the nation, has partnered with Patientco, a next-generation patient payment technology company to streamline payment processing.

Patientco will support all of HealthPartners’ point-of-service and business office payment needs, enabling team members to directly process payments across Epic modules or any patient touch point.

With Patientco, managing patient payments requires less administrative effort. By automating manual tasks, like posting and reconciling payments, the HealthPartners team can be more productive and focus on assisting patients. Additionally, as HealthPartners deploys encrypted devices across hundreds of locations, Patientco’s status as a Payment Facilitator (PayFac) simplifies the merchant onboarding, processing and ongoing device maintenance.

“Our unique payment infrastructure will provide a more modern, seamless payment experience for both HealthPartners’ patients and employees,” said Bird Blitch, CEO of Patientco. “We have a history of serving large health systems that use Epic and those clients appreciate the value Patientco provides. We look forward to delivering that value for a leading healthcare organization like HealthPartners.”
