Cardiologists have as they are doctors of the heart, which is a crucial part of the body. Without the normal function of the heart, things can start to go wrong in the body fast. This vital organ is tasked with pumping blood to every part of our body and without it, there would be no life. The medical field of cardiology deals with observing, diagnosing and restoring patient cardiovascular systems to achieve full health where possible. Cardiologists spend years studying everything related to the heart and how it interacts with all organs in the body. They run electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG), perform angioplasties and ablations, install pacemakers, and perform other necessary procedures on the heart. Millions of people suffer cardiological diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, heart valve malfunctions, and atypical function like arrhythmia. Causes of these diseases vary from suboptimal eating habits and fitness to genetics. Preventative care is often adopted to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Diagnosing and operating on the heart is costly because of all the training and intricate equipment that goes into the field. Cardiovascular practices typically situate themselves near or connected to hospitals. Frequently cardiologists have an affiliation with one or more hospitals. By doing this, practices obtain a constant flow of patients and hospitals benefit by being able to offer critical care to their community. Access to expensive equipment and facilities is achieved in this both cooperative and interactive model. Medical billing typically flows through a combined insurance and patient pay system. Once insurance including Medicare and Medicaid contribute to a patient bill there is typically a leftover amount for a patient to pay. In certain cases patients may be required to pay an entire bill for certain elective procedures.
Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems typically run all facets of cardiology practices. These systems maintain records for patients including past present and future office visits, medication, communications with patients, compliance and payments. Payment Integrator integrates Cardiologist payments with most of these systems to offer a P2PE tokenized environment to accept credit card and debit card payments as well as e-wallet options like Apple Pay and Google Pay. All payment integrations are secure and PCI Compliant.
