Enabling safe and simple touch-free payments

When you need efficient, convenient payment options to protect patient and staff health and safety, secure contactless options are an invaluable asset to your office. Contactless payment methods use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and near-field communication (NFC) to communicate with point-of-sale terminals, enabling patients to simply pay by touching their card or mobile device against the card reader to make a payment. Contactless payments are also known as touch-and-go payments because they are a fast, one-step payment method.

Our point-of-care payment terminals and Practice Management Bridge® payment platform work together seamlessly to accept all forms of contactless payments:

  • Digital wallets
  • Touch-to-pay cards
  • Mobile wallet apps such as Apple Pay®, Google Pay™, and Samsung Pay®

Offering the latest contactless payment technology in your office encourages patients to pay using their preferred method and gives them a frictionless, secure payment experience.

The benefits of contactless payments include:

  • Time efficiency Contactless payments do not require patients to enter a PIN, swipe a card, or sign for a transaction, making them a fast option that cuts down on checkout time and improves patient flow.
  • Convenience In addition to the fast transaction times of all contactless payments, mobile wallet payments allow patients to pay using their phone or smart watch without getting their wallets out.
  • Security Contactless payments are fully encrypted and nearly impossible to be hacked or duplicated. Contactless payments are as secure as EMV chip payments.
  • Touchless technology Transactions with contactless payments never leave the patient’s hands, so there is no contact with card readers, pens, or with staff touching physical payments.

With Practice Management Bridge, office staff can also streamline payment workflows by automatically posting payments to the patient ledger in the practice management system or electronic health record. Practice Management Bridge interfaces with any existing PM system or EHR to create more efficient and secure patient payment processes.

Convenient transactions

Contactless payments do not require a PIN, swipe, or signature.

Rectangle Health provides a full range of contactless payment capabilities to equip healthcare providers with the solutions that they need to keep patients and staff safe, to accept more payments, and to give patients the positive, modern payment experience that they want.

Touch-to-pay cards

Contactless credit cards have contactless capabilities embedded directly into the physical card. When your office is equipped with a payment terminal that accepts contactless payments, patients can simply hover over or touch their tap-to-pay card against the card reader to complete a transaction.

Mobile wallets and bank apps

With your contactless-enabled payment terminal, patients who prefer to use Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, or any other digital wallet app are able to pay without ever reaching for their wallets. By hovering their mobile device or smart watch above the reader, patients can make a fast, convenient, and secure payment.

Online payments

Online payments are another way that Rectangle Health enables patients to make contactless payments at their own convenience. With our online payment solution, we make it simple for healthcare providers to set up a secure payment gateway with their own unique link that can be added to websites and digital and printed communications.

Text to Pay

With text-to-pay functionality from Rectangle Health, providers can send patients a text message directly from Practice Management Bridge to their mobile devices with a payment link to the secure payment gateway. Patients can make payments with just a few clicks using the mobile-friendly checkout page.

Email payment links

With email payment links, patients receive a customized email from your practice containing balance information and a secure gateway link for a direct and easy-to-use payment method.
