Sandata and ABILITY Network Expand Partnership to Streamline the Management of Client Payments
Sandata Technologies, LLC, a leading provider of technology for State Medicaid agencies, Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), and home care Agencies, and ABILITY Network, an Inovalon (Nasdaq: INOV) company providing advanced, cloud-based platforms empowering data-driven healthcare, are expanding their strategic partnership to enable Sandata’s customers to more quickly and efficiently pay for home care services.
Sandata and ABILITY have partnered to provide ABILITY’s SECUREPAY™ application into their Agency Management solutions, enabling data to seamlessly pass between the two systems. ABILITY SECUREPAY benefits both provider agencies and their clients. The service offers flexible and convenient payment options and 24/7 access to its robust payment portal. With this expansion, customer provider agencies will now be able to manage all payments in one place, leading to improved cash flow via secure point-of-service payment processing and automation of schedule of payments. Staff can now spend less time on manual administrative tasks and gain real-time access to payment data.
David Birnbaum, Executive Vice President at Sandata, commented, “We are thrilled with the enhanced payment automation and options that ABILITY SECUREPAY brings to our customers, and further building on our longstanding partnership with ABILITY.”
“Rising healthcare costs and an increasing portion of patient responsibility means that patients are funding a higher proportion of their medical expenses,” said Bud Meadows, Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer of ABILITY. “Leveraging ABILITY’s leading technology capabilities to meet the growing payment needs of Sandata’s customers, we can help improve the patient payment process and simplify complexity.”
