AxiaMed Announces Direct Epic Integration for Superior Patient Payment Experience

Industry-leading payments technology platform offers greater security, unmatched reliability, and streamlined patient payment processing for Epic users

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — AxiaMed  today announced that Payment Fusion, its SaaS-based patient payment platform, is now directly integrated with Epic’s electronic health record and revenue cycle applications. With AxiaMed’s Payment Fusion, Epic users can improve their financial performance by accelerating patient payments and streamlining administrative workflows with secure, convenient credit/debit card processing and automated transaction reconciliation.

Available in Epic’s App Orchard, Payment Fusion uses Epic’s latest web services APIs to communicate patient payment information to and from Epic applications, ensuring greater accuracy throughout the transaction lifecycle. Payment Fusion seamlessly integrates into existing Epic workflows to facilitate patient payments and enable accurate, timely updates to the patient accounting ledger.

“We’re delighted to be able to offer Epic users a more secure, streamlined approach to managing their patient payments,” said Randy Clark, founder and CEO of AxiaMed. “With patients becoming increasingly responsible for larger portions of their healthcare bills, the demand is greater than ever for the flexible, convenient payment options provided by AxiaMed and our value-added partners.”

Payment Fusion’s integration with Epic offers an optimized payment experience for providers and their patients:

  • By using Epic’s web services integration, Payment Fusion creates a transaction record from the origination of a sale, which is then updated throughout the transaction lifecycle as it links Epic, the payment terminal or hosted payment page and the processor.
  • Payment Fusion’s unique architecture is designed to meet the unique needs of healthcare organizations, providing robust payment data security (validated point-to-point encryption) and a significantly reduced PCI compliance burden, both for end-users and partners.
  • Payment Fusion is a cloud-based application suite with no local software to install, manage, or update.
  • Through tokenization at the AxiaMed PCI-compliant gateway, payment card data is replaced with a unique character string. This “token” allows other systems and applications to take payments while ensuring that no sensitive card data is ever stored or exposed.
  • Patients can make payments by credit/debit card, eCheck, mobile wallets, FSA/HSA cards and through MyChart Online Bill Pay.
  • Payment Fusion supports real-time processing and posting to the patient accounting ledger, as well as flexible reporting to improve accuracy and reduce payment friction.
  • AxiaMed’s processor-agnostic gateway supports all the major processors and card brands.
  • AxiaMed’s Control Center provides enterprise-wide device estate management. Through a centralized web-based dashboard, IT security and support staff can track, monitor, and troubleshoot all payment devices in all locations.
