Healthcare Virtual Card Payment Program

Healthcare virtual card payment programs provide an easy and immediate solution to simplify payments and turn a traditional cost center into an additional revenue stream. The program brings supplier payments on a single automated platform.

The CommerceHealthcare® AP Card enables health systems, hospitals and physician practices to leverage automated, electronic payments and earn revenue through a virtual card. This flexible payment management program works with your existing accounting system while also creating a new revenue stream and reducing operating costs. By converting paper-based payments, like checks, to virtual card payments, healthcare providers gain operational efficiencies, detailed reporting, and reduced expenses.

"One of the more tangible benefits of working with Commerce is earning monthly revenue share by replacing paper checks with electronic card payments." Chief Financial Officer
