TransFirst®, a leading provider of secure transaction processing services and payment enabling technologies, and Waiting Room Solutions (WRS), a leading provider of EMR and practice management software systems, have formed an alliance to provide payment processing solutions to WRS’ clients in the healthcare and medical fields.
Under the alliance, TransFirst will provide specialized payment processing products and services that will seamlessly integrate with the systems in the WRS EHR/EMR workflow. Healthcare professionals will have the ability to accept credit card payments – including Visa®, MasterCard®, Discover® and American Express® – as well as signature debit and ACH without leaving the WRS system. Integrated, web-based payment solutions such as the ones TransFirst offers are an ideal solution in ambulatory healthcare settings because they allow patient payment records to become portable, accessible from any Internet-enabled device. Specialized equipment and software allow front-desk and back-office staff to work simultaneously, accepting payments both at the time of the visit and post-adjudication, and updating patient records.
“The processing and organizational solutions TransFirst is providing to WRS will allow healthcare practitioners to streamline their operations and focus on what’s truly important – patient care,” says Christy Corey, president of TransFirst’s health and government services division. “It is exactly the kind of solution that we as a company are proud to bring to the industry. We look forward to a strong alliance with WRS.”
“WRS is thrilled to be working with TransFirst,” says Dr. Lawrence Gordon, CEO of WRS. “In partnering with us, this premier provider of processing solutions has been instrumental in helping our clients ease the arduous task of processing patient payment transactions. They see the benefits immediately.”
