MILWAUKEE, WI, (October 15, 2020)—Health Payment Systems, Inc. (HPS) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Holista, a leader in value-based delivery and administration of healthcare services associated with bundled payment arrangements. The partnership between the two Milwaukee-based organizations reflects continued efforts to improve the value of healthcare offerings for patients, providers and employers across the state.
Through this exciting partnership, HPS customers will have access to an array of bundled services developed by Holista, empowering consumers with price certainty and a warranty. Instead of going in for a procedure not knowing the costs of radiology or anesthesiology, for example, new bundled prices will give consumers a fixed price for services--consumers are now buying an outcome instead of the component pieces.
“We are very excited to have an opportunity like this,” remarked Kate Grohall, Vice President of Holista. “By bringing two innovative and disruptive organizations together, we replace complex and stressful healthcare experiences with simplified, one-stop solutions for patients and employers. We do the heavy lifting so you can focus on achieving health and savings.”
With newfound predictability, Wisconsin residents will be able to access an all-in package for surgery services to save money while still receiving the highly coordinated care they expect. Utilizing a patient portal, patients will be able to further receive 24/7 support as an extension of their care experience in the physician’s office.
“It is important to continue to explore collaborations and opportunities to better serve our clients and make a difference in how health care is delivered,” said Mark Xistris, Chief Strategy Officer of Health Payment Systems, Inc. “This partnership does just that. In joining forces with Holista, we can continue to reduce the cost of healthcare and maintain the highest level of provider and patient satisfaction in the industry.”
In collaboration, Holista will offer their program of value-based bundled services through HPS’ broad-based PPO network and unique consumer financial wellness program that consolidates all patient responsibility onto a single monthly statement. When patients can’t afford their share, HPS helps with interest-free financing plans.
