GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Recondo Technology, a leading provider of revenue cycle solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that Recondo® has released Global Patient Financial Responsibility (GPFR) as part of the company's SurePayHealth® Software as a Service offering for hospitals. SurePayHealth GPFR integrates both hospital (facility) and physician (professional) charges on the same patient statement.
"A global statement can improve a hospital's financial performance," said Rick Adam, Recondo Founder and CEO. "Hospitals tell us they've waited years to have this capability to immediately show how much each patient owes the hospital and how much each patient owes the doctor. A global statement is also more understandable for the patient."
"The New York Times just reported that as recently as 2005, more than two-thirds of medical practices were owned by the physicians themselves," continued Adam. "But now more than 50 percent of US physicians are working directly for and getting paid by healthcare systems. GPFR helps these integrated delivery systems print and present statements of patient financial responsibility, accurately detailing charges for the hospital facility and the respective physicians, such as surgeons and anesthesiologists."
