J-Point Enhanced Cashiering Integrated with Your HIS Application
On 1 Jan, 2015 By lhaworth
Our J-Point Enhanced Cashiering Solution is a real time cashiering solution that improves the co-payment collection process through integration with your accounts receivable, billing, and appointment applications. It was designed for ease of use and fast patient processing while incorporating security and control of cash collections. It takes your credit card processing "out of scope" for PCI purposes and provides protection against costly credit card breach. Comply with the October 2015 deadline for EMV in the U.S. by implementing our Enhanced Cashiering Solution.
Our solution insures that you collect the proper amount at the time of service to avoid missing the opportunity to immediately collect amounts due and reduce collection needs and losses. Collection after the time of service is less effective.
The solution includes key cash management functions that include complete accountability of each representative’s transactions. Controls on the processing of transactions reduce the opportunity for error or theft resulting in strict audit controls over payments received. Payments are posted in real time to the patient’s accounts receivable account providing visibility throughout your organization on patient payments.
Managers have control and can quickly review from their desks the activity that is occurring at each representative’s cashiering station. Transaction authorizations are determined by you providing access to only those individuals properly authorized on the system. Since the solution is integrated with your applications, manual effort in data entry and reconciliation is eliminated.
Integrated credit and debit card processing including signature capture devices allows you to electronically record the patient’s authorization for the services and credit or debit card payment.
