The healthcare industry is relying more on cashless payments


April 5, 2020

The healthcare industry changes all the time to cope with lightning speed breakthroughs and adopt new methods that not only improve patient care but also all aspects that revolve around it including convenience. And nowadays, thanks to the internet and mobile penetration, the industry as a whole is seeing never before services in how doctors deliver patient care such as online appointment reservations and telemedicine. 

How can Kashier benefit your hospital or clinic 

1- By using Kashier to charge your patients, they will not need to queue to pay their hospital bills and get into arguments, nor will they have to arrive at the doctor’s clinic 2 hours in advance to secure a spot. 

2- The hospital’s administration will be able to send the patient or their family a detailed invoice with all services used. 

3- To cope with today’s economy and rising prices and in order to stand out as an attractive alternative among the competitors, if the hospital or the clinic wishes, they can also permit the patient to pay in installments during certain intervals to make the process easier. 

4- Both the clinic and the hospital will have access to a dashboard that breaks down the revenue by name, date and amounts. This way they can use the data to analyze their performance or follow up on outstanding bills. 

5- Has a patient ever been denied from leaving the hospital due to ill communication between security and finance? Well, that doesn’t need to happen anymore. Finance can now send the patient an SMS to make the payment and once it’s settled they can forward the payment to security to allow easy check out. 

6- It’s no surprise that big operations are expensive and carrying a huge sum of money around with you is not ideal. By allowing your patients to pay using electronic cards, you’re saving them the hassle and saving yourself the administrative work and the risk of fraud. 

7- Clinics can also use the service to charge down payments to secure their reservations and reduce no-shows which result in revenue loss. 

A great way Kashier is helping revolutionize the healthcare industry in Egypt is through telemedicine. 

Telemedicine, allows healthcare professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology, including chatting and video chatting. The approach has been through a major evolution throughout the past decade, and it is becoming an increasingly important part of the worldwide healthcare infrastructure 

Telemedicine was originally created as a way to treat patients who were located in remote areas, far away from local health facilities or in areas with shortages of medical professionals and assistance. While Telemedicine is still used today to address these problems, it’s increasingly becoming a tool for convenient medical care for patients who need to adjust to their lack of free time. Their goal is to waste less time in doctors’ waiting rooms or at times that they are unable to go to doctor’s appointments due to certain Illnesses. 

Whatever the reason is, allowing your patients to pay their medical bills online from their computer or mobile is safe, convenient and free.
