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.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
