Healthcare technology company AccuReg has acquired Zenig, which offers patient engagement technology solutions, for an undisclosed sum.
The solutions offered by Zenig enable touchless check-in, virtual waiting rooms, patient flow and bi-directional communication methods.
The acquisition adds Zenig’s technology to AccuReg’s patient access solutions and aligns with the latter’s strategy to integrate digital patient engagement with the revenue cycle to help health systems protect and grow net revenue.
AccuReg CEO and founder Paul Shorrosh said: “By combining Zenig’s innovative digital patient engagement technology with AccuReg’s market-leading, front-end revenue cycle management solutions, we can provide health systems with solutions that give consumers an experience similar to shopping on Amazon while preventing denials, increasing pre-service revenue and reducing downstream costs.
“Together, we will set the standard for seamless digital patient access and engagement that will strengthen health systems’ brands and attract more patients to their facilities.”
The acquisition will also allow AccuReg to offer fully automated digital patient access solutions.
Patients can use these solutions to engage online with the help of digital messaging via their smartphones, tablets and computers.
Zenig CEO Shawn Zimmerman said: “AccuReg shares our mission of serving health systems with innovations that improve the patient experience while helping providers capture full reimbursement for their services.
“Consumers want to engage with healthcare similarly to how they book travel with companies like Expedia or Travelocity.”
Zimmerman will become part of the AccuReg leadership team and all other Zenig employees will continue to serve customers from the company’s office located in Orlando.
AccuReg’s digital patient access solutions help hospitals reduce costs, increase revenue and enable price transparency and digital patient engagement.
