ACOM Health, a leader in Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Practice Management software solutions and Billing and Collection services to Chiropractors throughout the United States, has established a marketing and integration agreement with ClearGage, Inc., a leader in financial services and payment processing. This arrangement will specially provide ACOM Health clients with access to ClearGage’s portfolio of payment solutions which include credit card processing, virtual check payments, and patient financing.
“ACOM Health is pleased to provide its clients the suite of ClearGage payment solutions. With ClearGage, ACOM Health clients have access to payment tools and options allowing them to process point-of-sale, one-time payments for co-pays and to accept payments online. We see a huge benefit on the financing side, as patients will now be able to get the chiropractic care they need at the prescribed frequency. As a result, ACOM Health clients will now see increased practice revenue from patients who have previously forgone care or had left the practice due to finances,” said Mark Firmin, general manager of ACOM Health.
“This ClearGage partnership is well aligned to ACOM Health’s core healthcare business mission as we continue to provide our clients with the right tools to help them to extend the maximum in patient care, that drive practice capacity and growth, and that enable them to maintain a competitive edge,” added ACOM Solutions CEO and President Patrick McMahon.
“It’s no secret it is getting harder for patients to afford the care they need. In today’s healthcare market, and especially in the Chiropractic space, the increase in patient out-of-pocket expense is having a dramatic impact on utilization, patient wellness, and provider revenue. Through our relationship with ACOM Health, their clients will now have direct access to a suite of financial and payment solutions,” said Chip Hunziker, president and CEO, ClearGage, Inc.
