The Program is strategically designed to provide clients with a full-functioning solution to ensure immediate cashflow restoration and long-term success.

The VP of RCM at a large health system with more than 60 hospitals said, “Within 24 hours of reaching out to the Waystar team, we fully completed system design and build efforts. In less than 72 hours, we were able to get up and running submitting claims again. The responsiveness and high-quality work of the Waystar team cannot be overstated, and we are eternally grateful to them for their efficient, effective, and timely service.”
