The Mobile Financial Service Nagad has taken initiative to ease the payment procedure of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH).
An agreement between Dhaka Medical College Hospital and Nagad, an arm of Bangladesh Postal Department has taken place recently.
Rahel Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nagad said, “Nagad has always been working to make daily lives easier and transactions more affordable for people. The collaboration between Nagad and Dhaka Medical College Hospital is a testament. The state-of-the-art services of Nagad are now easily accessible to thousands of people, which will be able to lessen their suffering at the hospital.
To reduce the long queue and health risks of people the both organisations have come up with the best solutions, from now on all types of payments of DMCH can be given by Nagad.
With this agreement, all kinds of fees including ticket collection to visit a doctor, medical and other service fees can be paid through Nagad. Hence, medical patients no longer have to stand in line at banks or cash counters to pay their bills. This service from Nagad will alleviate the sufferings of thousands of people who come for treatment every day from different parts of the country.
Besides, salaries and allowances of DMCH’s fourth class employees will be paid through the mobile financial service ‘Nagad’. As a result, the administrative work of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital will be much easier and hassle free. Moreover, the employees do not have to worry about the banking hours to withdraw their salary. They can withdraw money from their ‘Nagad’ wallet anytime-anywhere.
‘Nagad’ has set up merchant payment options at several counters in DMCH for the patients coming to the hospital. So this process will save time as well as reduce unwanted suffering for the patients in order to facilitate the payment procedure easier.
