CareTend point-of-sale capabilities give providers the tools they need to quickly process transactions using their own hardware.

The added credit card processing features provide flexible options for patient accounts, POS, and cash management activities with complete data security. Providers can also enjoy tremendous cost savings using direct shipping options, enabling suppliers to ship on the customer’s behalf without carrying every product on inventory.
