Waystar’s technology ranked top in user satisfaction and client experience in industry survey.

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 21, 2021 Waystar, a leading provider of healthcare payments software, was named the top revenue cycle management (RCM) software and technology vendor in two categories in a recent survey conducted by Black Book Research:

  • End-to-End RCM Software & Technology, Hospital Chains, Systems, Corporations, Integrated Delivery Networks & Corporations
  • End-to-End RCM Software & Technology, Community Hospitals & Medical Centers

In a survey of 1,302 hospital executives, financial system users and business office leaders, Waystar was ranked the top RCM technology vendor in user satisfaction and client experience in both of the categories listed above. Waystar was evaluated alongside more than 200 vendors and was one of only two companies to earn top honors in multiple categories. As part of these rankings, survey executives deemed the following user satisfaction factors as having the highest importance: analytics and financial decision support, improved charge/reimbursement execution & coding, seamless EHR integration, demonstrated cost savings & ROI and value-based care readiness.
