Telemedicine startup HopDoc and fintech company Transact Bank have partnered with Transact Pro to deliver a telehealth platform to UK physicians so they can continue to treat patients while meeting social distancing requirements.

Hopdoc’s telemed solution was released in the US in early April. It will be free to independent doctors and clinics throughout the Covid-19 crisis. The system runs in the cloud and is accessible on any device with a web browser.

Transact Pro will provide the necessary processing technology to facilitate local and cross-border online payments.

Hopdoc CEO John Leu said: “Most current telemedicine platforms connect patients with a new doctor each visit, but Hopdoc, on the other hand, preserves the established patient-physician relationship by providing medical practices with a free platform to treat their patients virtually.”
