The days of patients writing checks or counting out cash to pay for their eye appointments are nearly gone. With the rise of contactless payments in the healthcare industry, patients can pay for their appointments and treatments with a quick tap or wave of their mobile device or payment card. There are several benefits of adopting contactless healthcare payment technology at your optometry or ophthalmology practice.
Touch-free or contactless payments use wireless technology to transmit payment data from a device or card to another device. Examples of contactless payments include tap-to-pay debit or credit cards and digital wallets.
Adopting touch-free payments at your eye care practice offers multiple benefits for you as the provider, your administrative team, and your patients:
To adopt contactless payment technology at your eye care practice, you need a payment processing system that works with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology or near-field communication (NFC) card readers. Rectangle Health’s Practice Management Bridge® payment platform works with point-of-care payment terminals to allow patients to use their mobile devices or tap-to-pay cards.
To allow patients to pay online, your practice can adopt QR codes. Patients scan the code and are directed to a secure website where they can input their payment details.
