CLIFTON, N.J., May 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sutherland Healthcare Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sutherland Global Services, was recently profiled by leading analyst firm Horses for Sources in their Soundbites section. The article Recasting the Patient Billing Experience with Design Thinking was written by HfS analyst Barbra McGann.
The article profiles how Sutherland Healthcare Solutions and Sutherland Labs were able to take an outside-the-box approach to reengineering the medical billing and payment experience process for healthcare providers to improve the overall patient experience. This new approach recognizes the new consumerism trend taking place in the healthcare industry where processes need to be redesigned and built around the patient and member experience.
"We believe the new consumerism era of healthcare requires a new way for patient engagement in all stages of the care model," Sutherland Healthcare Solutions Vice President Enrique Balaguer said. "By combining our healthcare expertise with the innovative design thinking of the Sutherland Labs, we have created a unique and scalable solution that transforms the way patients experience care."
The intent of the new approach is to increase overall patient satisfaction, loyalty, and engagement to create more effective processes for both the patient and the provider. Sutherland's experience research team includes psychologists and anthropologists who review all aspects of the patients' experiences and use the collective findings to create roadmaps for process improvement.
