Healthcare Lending (AHCL), a leading non-recourse patient financing
platform serving health systems, physician groups, and other healthcare
providers in the bariatric surgery, fertility, cosmetic dentistry,
plastic surgery, spine and neurosurgery, and behavioral health
markets, announced today a 200 percent increase in upfront customer
payments after deploying DocuSign
Inc.’s (DocuSign®) Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform. AHCL
employees and associated healthcare providers praise the ease, speed,
security and convenience of DocuSigning contracts — anytime, anywhere,
on any device.
“Taking our business digital while keeping customer data confidential is
a top priority for everyone at American Healthcare Lending,” says Nick
Sorensen, co-founder and COO, American Healthcare Lending. “We selected
DocuSign to accelerate our digital transformation because it’s the gold
standard within the Salesforce ecosystem for ease-of-use, availability,
compliance and security.”
AHCL specializes in helping healthcare providers secure the financing
their patients need for high-dollar out-of-pocket medical expenses. With
recent major shifts in the U.S. healthcare system, insured patients are
facing increasingly high deductibles which translate into hefty
out-of-pocket patient spending. In addition, many major healthcare
procedures are still not covered by insurance. As the leading
Financing-as-a-Service™ (FaaS™) provider in the country, AHCL offers
healthcare specialists innovative financing solutions available on any
device so patients have more options to Make Healthcare Affordable™ when
they are faced with large self-pay balances.
Today the company is using DocuSign
for Salesforce to automate and streamline paper-based processes
across the enterprise including AHCL’s inside sales team, HR, product
development and channel partner programs. “With DocuSign’s DTM platform,
we have realized a 55% savings in the time it takes to retrieve a fully
completed and accurate contract from a healthcare provider. This
translates to saving approximately $90 per contract,” adds Sorensen.
This streamlined efficiency has also helped AHCL drive a steep increase
in customers and in the number of providers that will pay upfront for
services because of the ease of use and enhanced experience via
DocuSign. AHCL and DocuSign continue to work on additional ways to
integrate DocuSign’s industry-leading DTM platform into AHCL’s financial
platform to extend the benefits of DTM to AHCL’s 1,000 healthcare
provider locations across the U.S.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
