There are many connections between the millions of patients and the many different healthcare facilities – doctors’ offices, hospitals and pharmacies – and this is where technology can make a difference. Altron’s Med-e-Mass, which uses the healthcare providers’ own data to help them make smarter business decisions, and MediSwitch, our claims switching tool, have been created to do just that.
Med-e-Mass was crafted around the goals of your business making sure that each Rand is spent on actual healthcare, rather than being wasted on administration costs. Med-e-Mass is a collection point for e-records like patient information, lab results and data on chronic problems. With Med-e-Mass, doctors have access to all the information they need, wherever they are, making it substantially easier to understand previous ailments or current treatments.
Individuals benefit too as the patient-based side of Med-e-Mass allows people to become more involved in their own health, as they take ownership of their conditions. For instance, a diabetic can use Med-e-Mass to monitor their blood glucose levels, weight and calorie intake.
Altron is also making medical scheme claims simpler and easier to manage. MediSwitch acts as a robust, effective electronic bridge between healthcare professionals and medical schemes. As a claims switching tool, it helps drive higher efficiencies and improve cash flow, while reducing costs, risk exposure and wasted time between the procedures and the reimbursement of them.
Financial services are renowned for their ability to adopt and apply cutting-edge technology solutions to improve their service offerings. However, there still two challenges that banks still struggling with:how to service the large portion of our population who remain unbanked, and how to manage the costly regulations inherent in this system.
With products like NuPayGO, KwikKadima, NuCard, Truity and In.sight, Altron is focused on helping organisations accelerate the financial inclusion of the unbanked, unregistered micro-lenders and informal traders who are such a critical part of our economy.
With NuPayGO, entrepreneurs and micro-businesses can expand their payment options, by being able to accept card payments from their customers in a way that suits both of them. NuPayGO, which is an expansion of NuPay’s traditional point of sale offering, is a technical marvel, making use of a smartphone or tablet to communicate via Bluetooth to a mobile Point-of-Sale (POS).
To assist the 40 000-odd unregistered lenders in South Africa with compliance through technology, we developed the mobile loan-management system, KwikKadima. While the solution promotes increased reach and business growth for the lender, it also integrates with the Aedo payment system for easy collections.
The third leg of our strategy for bringing the unbanked into the formal sector is NuCard, which is a prepaid debit card that allows a merchant to disburse funds electronically onto the card. This puts the user in a position to either withdraw funds at any ATM nationwide, or use it free of fees at any MasterCard POS pay-point.
With Truity we offer a comprehensive service that will enable your company to successfully identify, validate and continuously manage your customers’ identities digitally. With accurate customer data, identity verification, sanctions and watch-list screening all within Altron’s secure, BankservAfrica-hosted, PoPI-compliant vault, your company’s own regulatory burden can be reduced.
Whatever the size your customer is, your financial services ERP demands a robust accounting system that can give you complete insight into your customer’s financials, while still complying with industry regulations. IN.sight is a flexible financial management ecosystem that can be quickly configured to your needs or market requirements. It also provides a range of optional capabilities that encompass retirement products, pensioner payments, trust administration, funeral insurance, social security schemes, government grants and much more.
