Is there a payment terminal and vital card at the same time?

Health care professionals are looking for an effective and effective solution to manage medical services.

Remember, for a time, doctors only accepted cheques or cash, rather than credit cards. Or they offered very little home service because of unpaid bills.

Now those days are over. The checks are disappearing. New generations who don't swear by their smartphones and innovative applications want fast and reliable solutions.

In this article, we will talk about health professionals and the solutions that exist.

Health professionals must be paid

As we saw in the introduction, the cheque is missing. The species is much less used than before due to recurrent crate thefts. The payment that reassures everyone is the bank card. What for?

  • This is proof that the client owns the funds, because if not, the transaction will not take place and you will avoid an unpaid unpaid.
  • It's more discreet and no one knows how much money there is in the current account connected to the credit card.
  • If the bank card is stolen, the thief will not be able to do much about it: Internet payments are often linked to double authentication, he cannot go to a physical store because of the absence of the bank code, and even if he has it , it would be quickly traced. With surveillance cameras and other smartphones swarming right now, it would have a lot of trouble running away.

The medical professions that are going to need to be paid are doctors (specialists and general practitioners), nurses, dentists, physiotherapists,etc. By choosing to opt for an electronic payment terminal (ECT), they ensure they can accept more customers (there are customers who will refuse to see a doctor because of his payment method!).

The medical profession is evolving as a whole. With a modern and mobile payment solution, the professional can leave his office to practice at the patients' home.

What about the vital card?

Are there electronic payment terminals that can both cash and pass the information on to the Primary Health Insurance Fund?

Yes, it does! Three solutions are available on the market:

  1. A classic solution for people who only practice at their practice. In this case, the TPE is connected to the PC.
  2. A nomadic solution that is designed for health professionals who will go to patients' homes to practice. We think of nurses, physiotherapists, on-call doctors… The device is content to store all the information, and once back in the office or at home, a simple connection to the computer is enough to send everything to Medicare.
  3. A more complete solution that allows you to detach from the PC. The teletransmission is done through a SIM card and which makes the doctor fully autonomous.

All these solutions are used to address a major problem for health actors. And that's great news!
