The next time you look to pay your doctor, you may want to ask for his or her QR code — cashless transactions are safer for the patient and doctor alike. Through their Digital Doc program, BPI enables doctors and medical professionals to enjoy the benefits of digital payments via QR code.
“We are thrilled to share the benefits of cashless transactions — in enabling online health consultations and in keeping us all (doctors and patients alike) safe during these trying times,” said BPI Deputy Head of Marketing Mariana Zobel de Ayala. “In addition to keeping us safe from COVID-related health risks, the use of QR codes keep your bank accounts safer as well — they are less prone to errors that often happen when keying in account numbers and transfer amounts.”
Patients can pay in seconds and for free — by just scanning the QR code and inputting the payment amount. Doctors, in turn, are able to monitor their funds anytime, anywhere through BPI Online or BPI Mobile app. “As BPI, we hope to be a partner for our healthcare professionals — in enabling them with what is needed to adapt to the next normal, and more importantly, to keep them safe, ” she said.
To activate a QR code for free, doctors are invited to log in to BPI Online or BPI Mobile app and select “Other Services,” followed by “QR Generator.” From there, they simply select the account for which they wish to generate a QR code for, and can even add a nickname or label for their QR code — so that it is easily recognizable for anyone they send to. They have the option to include an amount requested for payment — but either way, by clicking “Save to Device” they can access it easily anytime — and send it to their patients as they wish. Beyond the benefits of convenience, BPI’s digital banking platforms offer security features to ensure protection of your data and account information.
