Hopdoc, a telemedicine startup, and Transact Bank N.A., a bank focused on fintech and payment processor, are teaming up with Transact Pro, the bank’s European affiliate, to deliver a friendly, secure and compliant telehealth platform to physicians in the UK so that they can easily continue to meet with patients amidst social distancing practices. Transact Pro will provide the necessary processing technology to facilitate local and cross-border online payments.
Hopdoc launched its HIPPA-compliant telemed solution in the US in early April and is now introducing it in the UK to provide doctors the tools they need to keep their patients and their practices healthy. It is free to independent doctors and clinics during the Covid-19 crisis, and providers can register at www.hopdoc.com.
“Amid Covid-19 fears, patients are turning to virtual care options,” said John Leu, CEO of Hopdoc. “Most current telemedicine platforms connect patients with a new doctor each visit, but Hopdoc, on the other hand, preserves the established patient-physician relationship by providing medical practices with a free platform to treat their patients virtually.
“We’re excited to bring our global reach and payments expertise to Hopdoc’s innovative solution, so that patients can continue to see their trusted physicians virtually,” said Mark Moskvin, CEO of Transact Bank.
Hopdoc’s secure system runs in the cloud and is accessible on any device with a browser. Transact Pro’s gateway seamlessly integrates with the Hopdoc platform, allowing simple oneclick billing and payments. Advanced features like recurring payments permit patients to pay over time by securely storing customer and credit card details.
