Practice management systems provider Raintree Systems has formed a strategic partnership with transaction processing services and payment enabling technologies provider TransFirst.

Under the terms of the agreement, TransFirst will be the integrated provider of payment solutions for Raintree Systems’ clients. Raintree Systems’ clients will have complete access to TransFirst’s comprehensive suite of electronic payment solutions, as well as TransFirst’s competitive pricing structure, dedicated program management specialists and 24/7 US-based payment processing support, according to a media release from TSYS, which acquired TransFirst in April 2016.

“This alliance with Raintree Systems continues to cement TransFirst’s reputation in the healthcare industry as the go-to partner for payment solutions, particularly as healthcare reimbursement continues to shift more toward higher patient responsibility,” says Carl Mazzola, president of TransFirst’s Health and Public Services division, in the release.

“TransFirst’s products and services fit perfectly with our company philosophy of solving real-world problems for providers delivering care in specialized fields of medicine,” states Terrence Sims, president and chief operating officer of Raintree Systems, per the release.
