Allied Health professionals now have a new choice and a new ally to help them provide improved patient payment and Health Fund claiming services. Tyro HealthPoint, an alternative to HICAPS, has recently been integrated with the Smartsoft Front Desk practice management solution. Ranging in size from five to thirty six practitioners, our early adopter practices include Podiatry, Chiro, Physio, Osteo, Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Exercise Physiology, Remedial Massage and Dietitians.

First impressions of the new Tyro HealthPoint Front Desk solution for both practice and patients have been especially positive in regard to the incredible transaction speeds being experienced. Lightning fast one second EFTPOS and two second Health Fund transactions are becoming the accepted norm for these early adopters.

Other features attracting favourable comment:

  • Tap & Go/Pay Wave capability – Very popular with patients
  • Integration that “just works” –multiple Front Desk workstations can share one integrated Tyro HealthPoint. This ultra-efficient and highly desirable configuration is easily achieved at minimal cost using the existing practice internet. Tyro HealthPoint is fully integrated with Front Desk.
  • Easy installation – Just two connections are required, power and Ethernet cable to the practice network. No additional cables to the Front Desk workstations and no phone lines.

Allied Health is no different to many other small/medium business environments – it’s extremely competitive. The smartest practitioners recognise that their patients do have a choice, so they need to differentiate their practice in any way they can. Now they have a new choice that immediately provides a fantastic “win-win” opportunity to do exactly that. Tyro HealthPoint provides simple, super-fast payments and Health Fund claiming, benefits that are appreciated by both the practice and their patient’s.
