Contactless payments in Healthcare

Healthcare forms a large business sector across the globe. In India, the healthcare market is expected to reach about 372 US$ by 2022. The boom in healthcare revenue and transactions has also been seen due to the pandemic and lifestyle changes, health conditions or diseases, increased access to insurance, rising income, and an overall high awareness of people.

The pandemic has also brought an urgent change in the demands of people regarding contactless processes. Digital transactions were on the rise since demonetisation; however, there has been a surge again post pandemic due to the social distancing norms.

It is more important than ever for healthcare sectors to stay up to date with the latest transaction needs of customers and trends to stay in the market. As per research, about 82% of consumers want to make all of their healthcare payments in one place together without having to jump from place to place. Also, more than half consumers can consider switching the healthcare provider based on their payment experience alone.

Payment Challenges Faced By Healthcare Sectors

Being a large scale and always running business, transactions in healthcare sectors continue incessantly across the globe. Some common challenges faced by people while making payments may include:

- Patients or their caregivers are generally in a mental distress, and do not have time for long payment processes.

- High need to avail only contactless payment options to ensure safety (even more relevant and important in healthcare settings and doorstep medicine deliveries or lab tests due to potential infection spread).

- Sometimes payments are being made by patients themselves who cannot move around much and appreciate bedside payment options.

- All patients and attendants want to avoid long queues due to mental and physical distress along with the need for social distancing.

- Unexpectedly high bills for which consumers are not ready to pay with cash.
