Eye Care Leaders and ClearGage Partner to Enhance Patient Payment Experience

A partnership that makes payments easier for practices and their patients

Tampa, FL, July 24, 2021 (PRWEB) – Eye Care Leaders, the leading technology solutions provider in the ophthalmic and optometric markets, and ClearGage, a leading provider of patient payment technology, have established a partnership to provide users of Eye Care Leaders access to a suite of payment solutions to improve the patient payment experience.

“Collecting patient payments is an ongoing frustration for practices” said Taylor Giles, Global Head Of Product Management at Eye Care Leaders. “Patients are burdened with high out-of-pocket costs and practices are bogged down with manual processes. By partnering with ClearGage, we are able to improve the payment experience for both our clients and their patients.”

ClearGage’s digital tools will be fully integrated with the Eye Care Leaders platform, allowing providers to easily present patient balance information, offer personalized payment plans, and receive payments sooner in the process. Practices will have the ability to communicate with patients about their bill via text and email. From there, patients can quickly pay their balance on their smartphone or tablet or select a financial plan option that best suits them.

“We are excited to partner with an industry leader like ClearGage,” said Amber Bullock, Director of Operations at ECL. “Many patients today are in need of services that help them pay for their care. Our integration will give patients more control when paying their bills and provide practices an easier way to collect patient balances.”

“ClearGage’s partnership with Eye Care Leaders is a natural fit given how they are continuously delivering customizable and innovative solutions that empower providers to focus on patient care while maximizing revenue” said Mikel Sides, Chief Revenue Officer at ClearGage. “Our fully integrated solutions enables providers to automate the collection of patient balances, offer flexible financing options so patients can get the care they need without facing financial hardship, and present patient friendly payment options all in one place.”
