Fiji’s largest private hospital, Oceania Hospitals Pte Ltd has successfully implemented BSP’s Internet Payment Gateway online payment portal to enhance its capability to accept payments via its website for medical services.

Acting General Manager, Murgessan Pillay confirmed that patients can now settle medical costs online seamlessly using either a BSP EasyCard or any VISA card.

He says this facility will also be of tremendous benefit in the facilitation of Tele-health services, a new initiative that Oceania Hospitals is planning for early 2022.

Pillay adds they face challenges where customers arrive at the hospital requiring urgent care and relatives are tasked with organising funds to meet hospital costs.

He says it also offers relatives a more seamless channel to pay the hospital directly whether they are in Fiji or abroad.

BSP deployed its IPG solution earlier this year to help online businesses keep up with the surging demand for an end to end online shopping experience due to the COVID situation.

BSP Country Head Haroon Ali says they are delighted to support Oceania Hospitals’ goal of providing premium medical care by facilitating online payments for BSP EasyCard and any VISA cardholders regardless of where they may be in the world.

He says their robust and secure IPG platform includes a 2-factor authentication protocol that protects the cardholder.

Oceania Hospital has been operating in Fiji since 2001 with BSP Life as its major shareholder.
