System allows patients to pay bills safely online

Marble Hill, MO-ePatient Payments.com from EMG Productions is an easy-to-use, cost-effective venue that allows patients to work with a practice's staff to set up a custom payment plan, after which a URL link is e-mailed to the patient that allows him to make secure, online payment transfers directly from his bank account. The environmentally responsible system reduces billing errors, shortens the cash flow cycle, and allows staff to track and download payment activity from the control panel.
