Leading Financing-as-a-Service™ (FaaS™) Company Achieves Dramatic ROI with DocuSign’s DTM Platform

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- American 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.
