Nashville, TN, September 13, 2021 —Sphere, a leading provider of end-to-end integrated healthcare payments and security software, today announced it has joined with Saina Health to enable secure payment acceptance through its InstaHealth™ platform.
Saina’s InstaHealth™ platform is an AI-enhanced Medical Record Interoperability Platform that facilitates instant aggregation and visibility of over 80 percent of medical records in the United States while fortifying them with best-in-breed standards for privacy, security, and compliance.
InstaHealthTM allows patients to easily track, manage, and share the health of multiple family members in one portal. It also helps physicians to gain instant access to a complete patient medical history, allowing for quick access and greater efficiency for everything from a routine physician visit to an unexpected emergency room visit. In addition, InstaHealthTM is integrated into partner telemedicine portals and can be accessed by patients and physicians during a video visit.

Using Sphere’s advanced encryption, payment data is safeguarded from the point of entry through transmission. Further, stored payment data is tokenized to reduce risk. All these highly secure solutions untangle payment workflow issues, improve the patient experience while keeping payment processing PCI DSS compliant in the InstaHealth™ platform.
