Transact Bank, formerly Colorado National Bank (CNB), has partnered with Hopdoc, a Nashville-based telemedicine platform. The partnership will enable Hopdoc to offer UK-based medical doctors a telehealth platform which allows them to keep meeting with patients amid the lockdown.
Although the UK government has taken what it considers to be “modest” steps in easing lockdown restrictions, (including: opening primary schools, car showrooms, open-air markets and enabling groups of six to meet up) many parts of the country are still feeling the effects of the crisis.
With Transact Pro’s gateway, doctors can offer one-click billing and payments to patients
Hopdoc launched the cloud-based solution in the US in early April, and the UK is its second market. The solution is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), and will be free for independent doctors and clinics during the COVID-19 crisis.
With Transact Pro’s gateway, doctors can offer one-click billing and payments to patients, as well as ‘advance’ payment options such recurring instalments by storing customer credit card details.
“Unlike most traditional telemedicine platforms that assign patients to random physicians on each visit, Hopdoc preserves the patient-physician relationship by allowing access to family doctors who know their patients’ backgrounds and medical histories,” says Hopdoc’s CEO John Leu in a statement.
