Can my patients pay online?
Yes. When patients pay for services (e.g. video consultations, text consultations, remote monitoring programs, in-person appointments) you offer, they can pay you online either via the web browser or through the patient mobile apps. To collect the payments from patients, you need to have an account with a payment gateway that works in your country and one that is supported by the ContinuousCare platform. This needs to be configured with your Virtual Practice account (you just need to set a few fields) and the rest works out of the box.

Are patient payments remitted to my bank account? Do you charge a commission on patient payments for services?
All patient payments are processed by the payment gateway that you have integrated. The ContinuousCare platform does not save any patient card details.

You will need to check the terms of service of the payment gateway you have chosen.
