Acryness Switches to Forte for Gateway Services
Allen, TX - October 18, 2016
Acryness, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare revenue cycle technology, today announces that they are moving to a single premier gateway provider, Forte Payment Systems, to streamline their operations and better support the SelfPay Works® platform.
Acryness® developed SelfPay Works to help healthcare providers initiate and maintain complaint conversations with patients about their financial responsibility and payment options. As one of the industry's very first complete end-to-end solutions for the self-pay revenue cycle, SelfPay Works requires a reliable, secure and efficient partner to assist with payment acceptance.
Forte Payment Systems and Acryness developed a strong relationship under the PayFac model through Vantiv, which enabled Acryness to onboard sub-merchants quickly by accepting liability. Leveraging this relationship gave Acryness the reliability of a large processor, while still giving them the advantage of the lower rates, personal attention and flexibility that Forte is known for.
This level of individualized support, coupled with the trust Vantiv has placed in Forte with the PayFac model, encouraged the growth of a powerful partnership over the years between Acryness and Forte. As a result, Acryness is now switching to Forte as its single gateway provider. This transition will simplify its back-office and give customers the option of accepting payments through any of the major processors via Forte.
For Mark A. Relyea, President and CEO of Acryness, Inc., this partnership provides the options, power and performance that the industry needs. "The healthcare market faces many challenges that a 'one size fits all' approach just does not fit. As a provider of solutions that respond to this multi-faceted and ever-changing landscape, we needed a partner that was able to adapt with us. Forte has been instrumental as we strive to deliver exceptional, client-centered solutions that add value above the industry norm."
SelfPay Works modules can integrate with any electronic health records and billing platforms, including Epic, Cerner, GE Health, Allscripts and Meditech. Acryness offers built-in credit card and eCheck processing for SelfPay Works through Forte. In addition, Forte's VX 520 point of sale terminal is available from Acryness for their healthcare providers and clients.
