With the rise of healthcare consumerism, people are looking to hospitals, health systems, and physician practices to deliver the same user-friendly, digital experiences they receive from other industries.

People want to easily make appointments, understand what their financial outlays will be, make payments, and set up payment plans if the estimated costs exceed their budgets—all via their mobile devices or tablets. Unfortunately, most healthcare organizations aren’t ready to provide this level of convenience. In part, this is because they have relied on patient portals as their main digital engagement tools to date.
