ophthalmology payment processing

Delivering practical and secure patient payment collection methods to ophthalmologists

Ophthalmology providers have a complex revenue stream, including both medical and vision insurance and a large number of patients who pay out of pocket because they do not have coverage. Our Practice Management Bridge® solution ties all revenue streams together seamlessly to make payment posting and administration easy – something that is especially important for ophthalmology offices that count on payments from many sources.

Our HIPAA-compliant technology simplifies the payment and reconciliation process to help ophthalmology offices accept more payments and save staff the time and effort that is required to post and reconcile eye care payments.

  • Interfaces seamlessly and auto-posts payments into any practice management system.
  • Enables providers to offer the latest convenient, contactless payment solutions.
  • Expedites payments before, during, and after care to reduce accounts receivable.
  • Stores patient data in a reliable, secure backend.
  • Improves communication between practice and patients.
  • Replaces outdated front office processes with digital automation.
  • Allows for functionality to be leveraged across locations.
  • Implements quickly with easy, remote installation.

Practice Management Bridge interfaces with any practice management system to give ophthalmology practices the tools that they need to run efficiently and to offer their patients the convenient, flexible payment options that they need to pay for their care.

Text to Pay

Send patients a text message, right from Practice Management Bridge, with their balance and a payment link. Using the link, patients can pay quickly and easily from their phones on a mobile-friendly checkout page. Text to Pay puts a convenient payment option right at patients’ fingertips.

Contactless capabilities

Offer the latest contactless payment options, including tap-to-pay cards and digital wallets like Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay®, and Google Pay. Contactless payments continue to gain popularity as a safe and convenient option, and accepting them at your practice creates a positive payment experience and increases the likelihood of receiving payments at the time of care.

Card on File

Place a card on file for a secure, convenient way for patients to pay, and an effective way for providers to ensure payment. When patients place their preferred payment method on file in the secure vault, it means one less step during future check-outs and a step towards a streamlined office experience. Card on File also makes additional consumer-friendly payment options possible, like recurring payments and payment plans (Care Now, Pay Later), that make it easier for patients to pay and that automate and expand provider opportunities to receive payment.

Flexible payment plans (Care Now, Pay Later)

The option to use a payment plan for out-of-pocket costs can make the difference in whether or not patients choose to pursue care. Working with patients to break balances up into manageable payments also ensures that your practice continues to generate cash flow, rather than waiting on a lump sum. Practice Management Bridge has built-in technology to make it simple to create and set up flexible, automatic payment plans that benefit both the patient and your office.

Online payments

Make it easy for patients to pay 24/7 at their convenience with a payment link on your practice or organization’s website. Our online payment tool looks and functions as an extension of your website, and you will receive a custom URL to share with patients in emails, text messages, and statements.

Auto-posting

Practice Management Bridge interfaces with your practice management system to post payments directly to the patient ledger, making it easier to manage disparate systems and keeping accurate patient information in sync.

Digital patient registration

Cut down on waiting room time by sending patients a link to digital registration forms before their visit. Offering patients digital registration forms is a way to improve patient satisfaction with their visits to your office, save staff the time and effort of inputting written data into their system, and to ensure that the accuracy of information is maintained.

Customizable messages

Reach patients directly by text message with appointment reminders, outreach, billing notifications, and more. In Practice Management Bridge, you can customize text messages and send them to patients directly from your workstation.
