Cerner, Simplee to develop personalized billing process for patients

Cerner will add Simplee's patient financial engagement platform to its revenue cycle portfolio to enhance price transparency, billing and personalized payments options for consumers.

By integrating its platform with Cerner's consumer technology, patients and providers will be able to access the combined services from a single user interface.

"Adding Simplee's expertise in consumer-friendly billing helps Cerner simplify this part of the healthcare experience through third-party innovation," said David Bradshaw, senior vice president of consumer and employer solutions at Cerner, according to the news release. "This relationship will help drive a transformation of the billing and payment process and help providers give consumers more convenience in healthcare."
