Netcash and Solumed Integration Eases Payment Pain for Medical Practices

Leading payment solutions provider, Netcash, and Avantedge Group member, Solumed, have announced the integration of the Netcash payments solution with Solumed’s medical practice management software.

The functionality simplifies the collection and processing of payments for users of the Solumed software, which include more than 1,000 medical, dental, radiology and allied healthcare practices around South Africa.

Solumed enables medical practices to efficiently manage their patient billing records and clinical records. The Netcash integration will make it simple for patients to pay using convenient instruments such as credit card, Ozow instant EFT, Scan to Pay, and Bank EFT. Practices simply send a Netcash Pay Now link to patients via email or SMS to make it easy to pay. Incoming payments are automatically reconciled with the correct relevant account, reducing administration.

Says Saul Jankelow, Solumed director: “Healthcare practices are embracing digital technology to streamline admin and improve the patient experience. To help them achieve these goals, we are partnering with best-of-breed providers to extend our software with functionality such as online bookings and digital payments. This integration with Netcash addresses a significant administrative headache for healthcare practices – efficiently collecting payment and following up on overdue accounts. The integration further allows medical practitioners to access and manage payments from anywhere in the world using the same software they use to manage their patient billing records and clinical records.”

Adds Netcash MD, Charles Pittaway: “We are pleased to partner with Solumed to provide a seamless and secure payments platform to its customers. This relationship aligns with our goal of partnering with software vendors to reach small and medium businesses across a range of industries and help them to make it easier and more convenient for their customers to pay.”
