MWTherapy Partners with AxiaMed To Offer a Secure, Fully Integrated Patient Payment Solution

Cloud-based Physical Therapy Software Provider Leverages AxiaMed’s Secure Patient Payment Technology to Enhance Security and Streamline Healthcare Payments

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – AxiaMed, an industry-leading healthcare payments technology company, today announced that Payment Fusion, its SaaS-based patient payment platform, is now fully integrated with MerlinWave’s Physical Therapy Practice Software, MWTherapy®, to provide a simplified and streamlined payment solution. With AxiaMed’s Payment Fusion, MWTherapy users can improve their financial performance by accelerating patient payments and streamlining administrative workflows with secure, convenient credit/debit card processing and automated transaction reconciliation.

The integrated MWTherapy® and AxiaMed solution can also help mitigate the impact of the current COVID-19 crisis by enabling home-based employees to safely and securely accept patient payments through Payment Fusion terminals with PCI-Validated P2PE. For businesses that remain open to the public, Payment Fusion’s PAX and Ingenico payment devices help limit physical interaction by taking NFC, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and more, eliminating the need to handle cards or touch keypads and screens.

“We spent a considerable amount of time researching potential partners,” said Sharif Zeid, Business Director at MWTherapy. “We chose AxiaMed because of their specific expertise in healthcare payments, achievements in security certifications including point-to-point encryption (P2PE), and their core value of putting clients first by providing top notch service. We’re very excited for this partnership and for what the future holds as we work together to innovate in an evolving healthcare world. Our clients are excited about additional security mechanisms in place to store their patients’ credit cards on file utilizing tokenization, processing credit card payments, voids and refunds directly within the MWTherapy® application, eliminating double-posting and manual entry errors.”
