Visual Orthodontics, Allen, Tex, announced the integration of Forte Payment Systems as its practice management software’s preferred payment provider. This partnership aims to improve the efficiency of Visual Orthodontics’ new Continuous Accounting feature, while allowing clients to take advantage of Forte’s payment solutions.

Orthodontic practices using Visual Orthodontics can access the built-in integration via a merchant account sign-up with Forte. According to a press release from Visual Orthodontics, with the integration, practices will receive automatic reconciliation of manual and credit card terminal transactions, patient statements and financial reports with data in real time, distribution of insurance payments across multiple claims, faster and more secure payment processing, and a special rate exclusively for Visual Orthodontics clients.

Forte utilizes a unique REST API that uses standard HTTP protocols within a PCI-compliant architecture allowing for simpler integration. According to Visual Orthodontics, this allows software developers to build scalable, secure applications with full reporting capabilities.
