Get the best of both worlds for your patients with Emdeon Patient Connect

The American consumer's continued trust of online billing, payment and banking may mean that providers and hospitals can benefit greatly from giving their patients electronic payment options, but the importance of clear and concise paper statements cannot be underestimated. The use of multiple vendors for these needs can make the coordination of both processes a difficult task that eventually reduces the benefits that make online billing and payment valuable in the first place.
