Card Manager

Practices that use integrated credit card processing can access the Card Manager from the Balances tab. Users can store credit card information to be used at a later date here. The card information is not available once saved due to PCI Compliance, however a token for the card is stored and can be used to process payments at a later date. If a patient saves a card via the Patient Portal, then that card will also be stored in the Card Manager. Cards added to the Card Manager in the EHR are not available to the patient in the Patient Portal. 

To add a new card:

  1. Click + New Card Entry
  2. This will open the "New Card Manager Entry
  3. Complete the required information and click OK
