...approach to mental health has been a chaotic patchwork of antiquated programs and ineffective policies across numerous agencies," Murphy said. "Sadly, patients end up in the criminal justice system or on the streets because services are not available."
...healthcare industry's largest payers, in some cases surpassing Medicare and Medicaid," said Jim Denny, co-founder and CEO of Navicure, in a release. "To continue to thrive, healthcare organizations must collect patient payments at or near the time of service and no longer rely solely on patient statements, which can come months after care and long after the patient remembers what procedures were performed. Throughout our history, Navicure has been dedicated to helping organizations collect more revenue from payers faster and with less effort. Now we're doing the same with regards to collecting from patients with the launch of Navicure Payments."
"There's a lot of goodwill around, I want to do the right thing by doctors ... patients and taxpayers. We have to get the balance right for who's paying for services."
"We're excited to have such a great partner in Aldera," said David Smith, the senior vice president of EngagePoint's strategy and growth. "This is a company that, like EngagePoint, is deeply entrenched in the unique challenges faced in healthcare adjudication and delivery. Our combination provides states with options to traditional vendors by utilizing a truly open platform along with industry leading components."
