Sphere, VisitPay partner to launch Text to Pay for healthcare providers

Payment solutions provider Sphere has joined forces with VisitPay to launch a mobile payments solution called Text to Pay.

The new solution will enable healthcare providers to accept patient payments through text messages.

The launch of Text to Pay increases payment alternatives for patients to pay their healthcare bills.

VisitPay CEO Kent Ivanoff said: “Through our partnership with Sphere we can help health systems offer convenient and secure payment channels to their patients.

“Mobile access to the VisitPay platform already exceeds traditional desktop usage in some regions of the US.

“Text to Pay is an important solution for health systems looking to meet consumers where they are, without disrupting the core EMR environment.”

The Text to Pay integrates Sphere’s payments platform with VisitPay’s patient-centric expertise in a new solution.

The technology utilises a card token to enable the patients without exposing sensitive card or patient information.

Sphere chief revenue officer Anthony Lucatuorto said: “As the payments ecosystem continues to expand and extend to new frontiers, security has to be first and foremost.

“We have deep experience working within EHRs like Epic and are excited to offer this complementary solution that will help our clients by integrating with their existing platform in a secure and compliant way.”

Powered by TrustCommerce, Sphere focuses on providing solutions that integrate payments and software for businesses.

Currently, it supports businesses in the US, Canada and Australia.
