May 21, 2020 AxiaMed Announces Availability of Contactless Patient Payment Solutions
Safer Patient Payment Solutions for Healthcare Providers Reopening in the Wake of COVID-19
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 29, 2020 / – AxiaMed, an industry-leading healthcare payments technology company, today announced the availability of a range of solutions for healthcare providers reopening their practices in the era of COVID-19 and striving to offer safer patient payment solutions for patients and staff. As stay-at-home restrictions continue to be lifted nationwide, healthcare providers are faced with the daunting task of reopening their facilities while protecting staff and taking every measure possible to ensure the safety of their patients.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and American Medical Association (AMA) have released comprehensive guidelines addressing issues such as safe waiting room policies and stringent sanitization practices, however, one major point of emphasis is the importance of minimizing contact as much as possible. One office interaction that is frequently overlooked is the patient payment transaction, which often involves close physical proximity between staff and patients. AxiaMed’s range of contactless patient payment solutions helps minimize or eliminate the risks associated with close physical proximity.
“Contactless digital payments are quickly becoming the recommended norm,” said Randal Clark, CEO and Co-Founder of AxiaMed. “Our payment devices can help limit any possible risks associated with physical contact in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. By accepting NFC-enabled forms of payment such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and more, AxiaMed’s PAX Android and Ingenico devices help eliminate the need for staff to handle cards or touch keypads and screens.”
AxiaMed’s patient payment technology integrates seamlessly into the healthcare applications of leading independent software vendors, including practice management systems, EHRs, revenue cycle management applications, patient engagement solutions, and more, enabling patients to make payments via online portals and web pages. AxiaMed also offers Text&Pay, a faster, easier way for healthcare providers to collect patient payments – without the risks associated with physical contact – using scheduled text reminders.
With the importance of social distancing, the ability to remotely update and manage payment devices from anywhere in the world is now crucial. With AxiaMed’s Control Center – a payment device management solution – security and technology management teams as well as some providers can secure, manage, and monitor payment devices from one cloud-based system, without the need for physical access. This provides yet another way to protect staff and patients by limiting physical interactions in the office space.
