Sphere Joins with GenieMD to Enable Safe and Secure Telehealth Payments

Leading fintech company integrates with telemedicine solution to deliver secure payments for virtual health and wellness visits.

Nashville, TN, September 15, 2020—Sphere, a leading provider of end-to-end integrated payments and security software, today announced it has teamed up with GenieMD, a global provider of telemedicine solutions, to offer secure payment acceptance through the GenieMD platform.

GenieMD is a HIPAA compliant, cloud based, mobile-first telemedicine platform that features video conferencing, secure text messaging, chronic care management, EMR integration, and now payment processing. Integrating Sphere payment processing technology with the GenieMD platform will facilitate transaction processing without adding barriers to care for patients, while significantly reducing scope for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

Benefits of the GenieMD and Sphere integration include:

  • Mobile friendly—the GenieMD iVisit app lets patients locate a physician, complete a clinical visit and pay for the visit from the palm of their hand
  • Compliant—uses a Premium Hosted Payment Page for online payments to separate payment card data from provider environments
  • Secure—supports tokenization for safe recurring payment cycles and batch activity
  • Flexible—features a portal to access customizable reporting, batch transaction uploads, and more

“As telemedicine is now a vital component of health care delivery, we are proud to partner with GenieMD,” said Steve Rizzuto, Chief Executive Officer of Sphere. “Our combined strengths in healthcare and e-commerce alongside GenieMD’s innovative telehealth platform deliver a complete solution for providers of all sizes.”
