Health Credit Services Partners with HIMSS Revenue Cycle Improvement Task Force to Promote Vision for the Next Generation of Revenue Cycle Management
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Health Credit Services (HCS), a technology-driven patient financing company, is excited to announce its partnership with the 2018 HIMSS Revenue Cycle Improvement (RCI) Task Force.
Keeping administrative cost containment, interoperability and consumer engagement front and center, the RCI Task Force analyzes the current patient financial experience and develops vision for the next generation of revenue cycle management tools and processes. The Task Force serves as a hub for thought leadership and industry-wide collaboration with membership spanning providers, financial institutions, payers, mobile technology companies, retail clinics, revenue cycle vendors, healthcare consultants and professional associations, including HFMA, HATA and AMA.
“Healthcare industry revenue practices are incredibly complex and many times, drive already stressed consumers into a state of overwhelming frustration and exhaustion,” said HCS CEO Hans Zandhuis. “The industry recognizes the patient payment experience is broken and is coming together via the HIMSS RCI Task Force to create a vision for the next generation of revenue cycle management.”
At the core of HCS is the belief that more Americans should have access to the medical procedures they need – it’s what motivated the HCS founders to transition from jobs in banking to careers in healthcare financing. It’s also why the company continues to specialize in only healthcare financing while committing itself to devising new ways for patients to afford care. From practices delivering more care to patients successfully managing their health, HCS takes pride in empowering and equipping customers to take charge of both their physical and financial well-being.
“In our rapidly evolving healthcare environment, modern consumers carry a financial burden of more than $486 billion in out-of-pocket costs,” said HCS CEO Hans Zandhuis. “Our relationship with the HIMSS Revenue Cycle Improvement Task Force puts us in a room with a myriad of smart, creative minds that seek to alleviate this burden. This thought leadership partnership will keep us abreast industry trends, while challenging us to devise innovative ways to increase access to medical procedure financing.”
