Flywire has announced a new sponsorship agreement with USCIPP, the U.S. Cooperative for International Patient Programs. USCIPP is the premier non-profit organization dedicated to expanding global access to U.S. expertise in high-quality healthcare. The agreement comes on the heels of our entry into the $40B international patient care industry, announced in October 2015 and is expected to help expand the company’s visibility and market penetration.
USCIPP is a non-profit membership organization comprised of U.S. academic medical centers, healthcare systems and hospitals operating in the international patient care arena. The organization has 63 member institutions, including Rush University Medical Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, UCLA, Memorial Sloan Kettering, NYU Langone and Cleveland Clinic. USCIPP is part of the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL), a non-profit with a focus on improving health by strengthening healthcare leadership. NCHL’s work emphasizes forging collaborations across health systems to identify and share best practices in leadership and organizational excellence.
Flywire was selected by USCIPP as one of only three sponsoring organizations – based on its commitment to supporting the work of USCIPP and its member healthcare providers. As part of the agreement, we will sponsor USCIPP’s Annual Meeting on April 27-29 at UCLA in Los Angeles and offer USCIPP members education and advice on streamlining international patient care payments.
“Flywire operates with the same level of integrity and dedication to patient experience as USCIPP and its member institutions,” said Mike Massaro, CEO of Flywire. “We look forward to supporting USCIPP, engaging with its members and helping to simplify the payment process for both international patients and the institutions that care for them.”
“USCIPP is pleased to welcome Flywire as a sponsor,” said Jarrett Fowler, program manager for USCIPP. “We selected Flywire as a partner in the payments category based upon their reputation for quality, payment expertise, and service. These attributes are considered extremely important by USCIPP’s member institutions.”
As Flywire’s ambition to serve the global citizen has expanded, so has our platform. Flywire recently expanded its focus to include the burgeoning medical tourism market with the launch of a new cross-border payment solution for patients traveling overseas for medical care, which this new sponsorship with USCIPP will help propel. Flywire hopes to transform cross-border medical payments in much the same way it did cross-border educational payments: providing speed, transparency, efficiency, payments and currency-agnostic payments services for the patient and ease of reconciliation to the medical institution.
