CareStack, a cloud-based enterprise practice management solution for the dental industry, and ClearGage LLC, a leading provider of patient payment technology and financial services, have established a partnership to provide CareStack users with a suite of patient-centric payment solutions.
“CareStack is a complete clinical and business management platform with advanced capabilities for managing all aspects of a dental practice,” Abhi Krishna, CEO, CareStack, said. “By integrating with ClearGage, we enable practices to leverage patient financing for treatments and thereby increase overall revenue. Together, we intend to elevate our customers to the next level of financial success.”
CareStack’s flagship solution is a complete clinical and business management platform on the cloud to manage all major functions of a dental practice. CareStack leverages analytics and automation to enhance the patient experience, maximize insurance reimbursement, and improve patient dental care.
The ClearGage platform allows providers to tailor patient financing to individual patient needs. Dental practices now have the capability to easily discuss these options with patients and set them up on a payment plan all within the CareStack platform. With ClearGage, dentists can offer patient financing to 100% of their patients on terms acceptable to both parties.
CareStack clients will have access to ClearGage’s Mobile QuickPay and AutoPay. Often times patient statements aren’t processed by the provider or sent to the patient for weeks, or even months after treatment. Through the data integration with CareStack, Mobile QuickPay automatically and immediately notifies the patient’s via text or email of balances due upon claim adjudication. Patients view and pay their balances through their smartphone, tablet or computer. Additionally, dental practices can ensure they receive full and punctual payments by securely capturing and storing payment information with AutoPay with an account on file technology. Similar to the travel industry, patients pre-authorize a payment to be run, up to a certain dollar limit, upon claim adjudication. Patients receive a text and/or email notifying them of pending charges prior to the payment being run.
“We are excited to work with Abhi and the CareStack team to improve the patient financial experience.” Chip Hunziker, CEO of ClearGage, said. “CareStack has built a tremendous platform and value proposition for the dental market and combined we will deliver a payments platform that will increase practice revenue, decrease the cost of collections and increase patient satisfaction”
