Sikka Software announced the launch of a new payment platform for the dental industry, Sikka Payments, during the Greater New York Dental Meeting earlier this week.
The platform is designed to equip patients with a pay-anywhere capability and automate the payment and reconciliation process for providers, the statement said. Sikka Payments is designed to harness the increased capabilities, enhanced security, and reduced costs associated with processing electronic payments. Mobile payments allow providers to request and accept payments remotely, allowing the practice to accelerate accounts receivable collections.
In conjunction with Sphere, this payment solution allows dental practices to accept patient payments from a variety of channels, which are all integrated into their practice management system. Sikka Payments is built on the HIPAA and HITECH compliant Sikka Platform Cloud, which connects to the majority of retail healthcare applications, including 96 percent of dental practice management systems, the company said. Sphere delivers easy to integrate payment processing technology and cost-effective processing that is highly secure and compliant.
“Dental offices need three key things from a payment application; to save time by making it easier for the team to accept payments, to save money by providing the best rates, and to provide today’s hyper-connected patients with an easy and convenient way to pay from anywhere,” said Vijay Sikka, Founder and CEO of Sikka Software. “Sikka Payments, launched in collaboration with Sphere, delivers on each of these three things and revolutionizes payments in the dental industry."
“Sikka has built a proven platform that allows practices to leverage innovative third-party applications to improve operational efficiencies,” said Steve Rizzuto, CEO of Sphere. “With the addition of Sikka Payments, dentists now have a single source to maximize their practices in an integrated, secure, and frictionless way.”
