The first practice-management software offering a Patient Pay-by-Text option to dental offices nationwide has arrived.
TSYS’ ProPay and Practice-Web have integrated Practice-Web into ProPay’s ‘one-click’ payment platform.
The software requires no mobile app download and no online payment portal. Payments may also be paid through traditional means in the office, over the phone and on the Web by Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
The integration enables an email or text message to be sent to the patient, after the insurance claim is paid, notifying the patient of their balance due. Patients can then easily pay their bill with their smartphone and store their card for future payments. At the same time, the dental practice improves the collection of its receivables.
The partnership provides low and transparent transaction fees, real-time merchant account activation, and single sign-on bank account reconciliation ” all within a platform that is fully compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
