ATLANTA– Patientco, the leading healthcare payments technology company that optimizes the payment experience for providers and patients alike, announced today that Alan Nalle is Patientco’s new Chief Strategy Officer. Nalle will focus on guiding Patientco’s long-term strategy to grow its market share as the leading provider of next-generation patient billing and payment technology for enterprise health systems.
“I am thrilled to join the Patientco team. Healthcare consumers demand more from their care both clinically and financially, and Patientco enables providers to give patients a superior financial experience,” said Alan Nalle, Chief Strategy Officer at Patientco. “With Patientco, our clients aren’t just getting a software solution, they’re getting a strong team relentlessly focused on improving the patient payment experience, which yields more payments for healthier operating margins. It’s a win-win for hospitals and their patients and that’s what I’m most excited about.”
Nalle will work to expand Patientco’s already consumer-friendly billing experience, backed by analytic insight, to more providers. He will also continue to build strong relationships between consumers and provider clients, resulting in happier patients and more payments.
Nalle comes to Patientco from Accenture Strategy, where as a Managing Director he led many projects addressing client’s most pressing issues – from diverse M&A engagements to organic growth strategies.
