Patient Payments

The Flexible Business Office XBO

As patients become increasingly responsible for rising out-of-pocket
expenses, providers need patient-centric options that include flexibility
and high touch support to enhance patient relationships and achieve
financial results. Encore Exchange combines the power of advanced
patient payment technologies with services to engage patients in the
resolution of a bill before it becomes a hardship. The XBO platform
consolidates healthcare expenses, determines eligibility for assistance,
offers tailored payment plans and provides convenient payment options
including mobile-friendly self-activation features.

Encore Exchange supports providers in forging a new relationship with
patients by creating a financial experience that extends excellent care
beyond the bedside.

Common Configurations

eXtended Care Program (XCP)

Reduce Bad Debt placements while engaging patients that have become unresponsive to your internal collection efforts. Our alternative strategy allows hospitals to screen for presumptive charity eligibility, send notifications of adjusted balances on qualified accounts, and escalate to agency engagement on non-qualifying accounts. The results: earlier payments without the high cost of bad debt and the associated damage to the patient-provider relationship.
