Seamless integration with Sphere’s TrustCommerce platform enables providers to accept mobile wallet transactions, such as Google Pay and Apple Pay, within MyChart.
Nashville, TN, March 10, 2022 —Sphere, a leading provider of end-to-end integrated healthcare payments and security software, today announced that its TrustCommerce platform supports Google Pay™ and Apple Pay® within its Epic MyChart integration.
Available within Epic App Orchard, the TrustCommerce External Payment Page Integration enables health systems to securely collect patient payments online through MyChart and MyChart Mobile quickly and easily while minimizing PCI scope. Consumers’ use of mobile payment options such Google Pay and Apple Pay have become increasingly popular as a more convenient way to complete their online transactions and they are increasingly expecting healthcare providers to deliver the same consumer convenience they experience in other industries.
Mobile payment solutions such as Google Pay and Apple Pay replace physical credit cards and cash with an easy, secure and fast payment method that can be used online on their desktop or mobile device. With no card numbers to enter, mobile wallet options offer a safe and convenient method of payment.
“Sphere is committed to delivering the software integrations that drive the most smooth and secure patient payment experiences in healthcare,” stated Curtis Bauer, Chief Innovation Officer at Sphere. “Our integration with Google Pay and Apple Pay represent a continuation of that commitment. Patients’ use of digital wallet solutions, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, is increasing exponentially as these options securely store patient payment information and preferences, resulting in a faster, simpler and more convenient payment process.”
