Syosset, New York -- Pharmacies now have the ability to wirelessly collect patient copays through Micro Merchant Systems' newly-released PrimeRxPAY™ technology functionality. PrimeRxPAY™ provides an ideal solution for pharmacies seeking to offer contactless transactions, with the added benefit of seamless records management.
PrimeRxPAY™ is the latest addition to the PrimeRx ™ comprehensive suite of pharmacy management solutions. Today's announcement is especially timely, given the urgent need for pharmacies to facilitate social distancing and minimize person-to-person contacts.
"PrimeRxPAY™ was originally intended to provide patients with a convenient, flexible option for completing their copay transactions," said Akbar Merchant, Micro Merchant Systems president and owner. "Instead, given the critical circumstances in which pharmacies now operate, PrimeRxPAY™ will serve as an essential tool in allowing pharmacies to provide a contactless payment experience."
Through PrimeRxPAY™, a patient receives an automatic text or email notification that a copay is due. The message includes a URL link that directs the patient to a secure payment portal. Once the patient's credit card information is submitted, the copay is processed via an online payment processing service. Upon completion, funds are automatically deposited in the pharmacy's account, and a patient receipt is seamlessly generated.
PrimeRxPAY™ is available at no additional cost to PrimeRx™ users.
"Pharmacists have truly been on the front lines in ensuring patients have uninterrupted access to their medications," said Ketan Mehta, Micro Merchant Systems chief operating officer. "We are pleased to assist in these efforts with PrimeRxPAY™, which allows pharmacies a logical way to better serve their patients, and promote safety and wellbeing."
