PatientlySpeaking releases new product that allows patients to pay their bill thru a text message
Westlake Village,California (PR MediaRelease) September 7, 2016
The cell phone has become the primary means of communication for virtually everyone of all ages in America. In a recent survey by Pew Research Center, it was found that over 80% of adults text on their smart phones. But here comes the really important statistic – 98% of all text messages are opened versus only 20% of all email messages! Given this staggering fact, it makes sense to offer a product that will reach patients to enable paying their bills where they communicate – via text message.
PatientlySpeaking, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ntegrus Solutions, has taken this information to heart and has released their latest product, Pay My Bill Now, as an add-on to their Patient A/R Collection Platform. The new product uses the core texting communication capabilities of PatientlySpeaking, and adds the ability for a patient to simply click on a link in that text message to pay their bills. The patient is connected to a secure portal provided by our partner company, Maverick BankCard. The patients’ credit card information is communicated over a PCI compliant link directly to the payment gateway – never captured or visible to either the practice or PatientlySpeaking.
