Formerly, the solution offered revenue cycle management features, which is now extended to deliver patient billing and collection services by combining the solutions from two of its business partners, A/R Allegiance Group (ARA) and Rock-Pond Solutions.

“This allows Rock-Pond reports and CPR+ Analytics to work in conjunction with ARA’s private pay billing and collection process, and provides an efficient way to deal with the growing challenge of patient pay collections,” says Pete Tanguay, President, Rock-Pond Solutions.

CPR+ connects COLLECTPlus so that the payment and adjustment activity is delivered among the systems without manual work ensuring data accuracy.
