September 10, 2020 AxiaMed Teams with Cerner to Provide Secure, Flexible Patient Payment Experience
Integrated Solution Offers Streamlined Patient Payment Processes and Robust Payment Data Security
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – September 10, 2020 — AxiaMed, an industry leader in payment technology, today announced a new collaboration with Cerner Corporation, a global health care technology company. AxiaMed’s Payment Fusion platform will be integrated with Millennium and other Cerner revenue cycle and payment applications. The new solution, ePayments Plus, will enhance patient payment processes and provide industry leading security and flexibility for Cerner clients.
The integrated solution allows health care organizations to initiate payments inside Cerner embedded revenue cycle applications, providing payment processing and posting to the accounting ledger. ePayments Plus was created in response to the rapid increase in patient financial responsibility in the United States and the subsequent need for organizations to increase collections, decrease collection costs, and enhance workflows for patients to pay their medical bills.
“Direct integration with AxiaMed’s cloud-based payment platform will provide Cerner clients with the very latest in secure, flexible patient payment technology inside the existing workflows and user interface of our revenue cycle applications,” said Morgan Pape, senior director of Revenue Cycle Business Operations and Transaction Services at Cerner. “We are delighted this integration will help us meet the needs of health care organizations for payment solutions designed to increase collections while enhancing the patient experience.”
ePayments Plus will utilize AxiaMed’s PCI-Validated Point to Point Encryption solution for all transactions, which is the latest in encryption technology under PCI rules and regulations. Hospitals and health systems are now demanding this new encryption technology, and ePayments Plus will be able to meet this new demand with the integrated AxiaMed solution, which will enhance the security footprint of Cerner clients while reducing PCI scope, compliance burdens, and costs.
With AxiaMed’s Control Center, an industry leading cloud-based payment terminal management platform, Cerner clients will be empowered to manage their entire estate of networked and wireless payment devices from a security, maintenance, and asset management perspective. Control Center is utilized by AxiaMed’s current partners and their clients to manage their payment devices.
“Cerner is a recognized leader in health care technology innovation and we are honored to collaborate with them to provide clients a more secure, integrated, and interoperable approach to managing patient payments,” said Randal Clark, founder and CEO of AxiaMed. “Health care organizations are increasingly focused upon enhancing the patient experience as well as maximizing patient collections. Every year, patients become increasingly responsible for larger portions of their healthcare bills, and the demand is now greater than ever for the ﬂexible, convenient payment options available through AxiaMed’s collaboration with Cerner.”
With this new collaboration, AxiaMed’s integrated payment platform will provide Cerner clients with the option to utilize Payment Fusion’s payment technology in conjunction with AxiaMed’s payment processing services as a single payment solution or, if necessary, the merchant acquiring services of other US merchant acquirers certified with AxiaMed.
