Amidst the National COVID-19 virus outbreak, most healthcare facilities need to continue their day to day operations. Medical offices, clinics and hospitals are being stretched to their capacity and beyond. Most healthcare providers are searching for ways to continue commerce flowing, while also tending to the needs of their patients. Right now, most medical offices are working with limited office staff. Additionally, like all American companies, big or small, they are practicing mandatory quarantines.
The practice of Social Distancing has been embraced as a key government strategy to help minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. With “Social Distancing” and “Mandatory Quarantines” in effect, it makes it difficult and risky for patients to visit their provider’s office or clinic. In more cases, doctors are utilizing video conferencing or telemedicine to see patients. A digital co-pay is increasingly important.
Best Card developed an online “Make A Payment” solution to help our healthcare merchant partners with a method to ensure commerce remains intact. The ability for our partners to focus on the needs of their patients is invaluable. Our online gateway is the foundation to guarantee that clinics continue to positively cash flow. Additionally, the system is robust enough to minimize account receivables and create efficiencies while clinics find themselves operating with a modest staff.
The Best Card online payment-gateway has many positive features and benefits for both clinics and patients. The advantage for the clinic is obvious, a streamlined, online payment system designed to protect cash flow. The patient is able to meet their financial obligation by simply going to the clinics website and paying their bill from the comfort of their own home, 24/7. There is no need fo
r patients to remember a password or “login”, which can be frustrating, and reduces the likelihood of payment.
