Reno Orthopedic Center Partners With HealthMe for New Price Transparency and Digital Commerce Platform
Strategic Agreement Expands HealthMe Orthopedic Network to Nevada
NAPLES, Fla., April 18, 2023 (Newswire.com) - HealthMe announced today a new partnership with Reno, Nevada-based Reno Orthopedic Center (ROC) to provide their patients a price transparency solution allowing for ROC to offer digital direct payments for transparently priced services and bundles. In addition to providing a secure, patient-friendly payment platform for services covering a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic care, it automates the delivery of Good Faith Estimates (GFE) to patients who request a GFE in advance.
Delivering consistent innovation to the patient experience, ROC has brought together the region's leading specialists, imaging, and urgent care services and coupled those with convenient self-scheduling and walk-in care. Now, ROC has partnered with HealthMe to advance their dedication to personalized, quality care with the latest consumer-centric payment process—which also exceeds national requirements for price transparency. The launch of HealthMe is specifically designed to meet the needs of the ROC patient base—residents of the rapidly growing Reno-Sparks area who are often self-employed, small business owners, or university students.
"Our team of twenty-seven physicians, our dedicated physical therapists plus our incredible front office staff is united in their commitment to provide extraordinary orthopedic care to our community," commented Lisa Mead, CEO of Reno Orthopedic Center. "By assuring that we are meeting the needs of our patients by adopting the latest and most consumer-friendly digital payment solutions, we are keeping our patients and staff at the center of our efforts to provide quality and accessible care. We are pleased to partner with HealthMe on these efforts and to become part of their nationwide community or orthopedic practices."
"Price transparency and consumerism are two of the key drivers in healthcare today. Patients expect financial and technology service levels that they get in virtually every industry," commented Michael Having, M.D., HealthMe founder and CEO. "By streamlining and removing the complications from the payment process, we help our partners optimize their time with a focus on excellence in patient care and service. We are looking forward to expanding our partnership with ROC with direct care models built on transparency, affordability, access and a better physician and patient experience."
