CareCredit, a Synchrony (NYSE:SYF) solution and provider of promotional financing for patients, announced that it is now integrated into Sycle, a practice management platform for the hearing industry. The new integration is designed to help hearing healthcare practices save time, increase productivity, and provide patients with a financing option that makes it easier to move forward with the care they need for improved hearing health. 

Through the integration, practices can now process CareCredit credit card transactions directly from the payment screen in Sycle and have them automatically post back to the patient ledger, helping to save time and minimize human error. Helping patients apply for the CareCredit credit card is also easier. When a patient wants to apply, the patient information is automatically transferred to the CareCredit application, so all the team has to do is complete a few fields of information and click “submit” to receive a credit decision within seconds, according to the company’s announcement. Additionally, with CareCredit’s Quickscreen integration feature, practices can help “easily identify patients who are pre-approved or that already have a CareCredit credit card directly from their Sycle practice management software — even before they visit the office.”

“As the largest patient financing provider in the hearing healthcare industry, we are very excited to partner with Sycle, the largest practice management software provider,” said Amar Malik, general manager, Sight and Sound, Synchrony. “We share a common goal and that’s to provide solutions that help hearing healthcare practices streamline processes, enhance productivity, and remove barriers that may stop patients from getting recommended care.” 

“Integrating Sycle and CareCredit gives practices access to best-in-class solutions”, said Stephanie Grein, vice president of global sales and enterprise services, Sycle. “Our partnership enables the delivery of critical financing services that hearing healthcare practices must have in order to power their business growth and provide better service. And with the optimization derived from integration, it allows our providers to spend more time treating their patients.”
