RHB Islamic Bank Berhad (RHB) is proud to collaborate with the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) and Axiata Digital Ecode to deliver a cashless payment facility for government clinics, through Boost e-wallet.

The event was officiated by Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, Minister of Health Malaysia at Klinik Kesihatan Cheras.

Under this partnership, RHB is the main banker for MOH in managing collection and payment accounts. This collaboration will see the implementation of Boost e-wallet at 4 pilot locations namely, Klinik Kesihatan Cheras, Klinik Kesihatan Kuala Lumpur, Klinik Kesihatan Putrajaya Presint 18 and Klinik Kesihatan Seremban.

“The use of this e-wallet adds value to MOH, counter services at government clinics. MOH hopes that this e-wallet payment facility will enhance the efficiency of service delivery of health clinics as well as provide customer-friendly facilities.

“My sincere appreciation to Axiata Digital Ecode Sdn Bhd and RHB Islamic Bank Berhad for their cooperation and commitment in the successful implementation of the e-wallet (Boost) at health clinics,” he said this in his speech at the launch.

“The e-wallet facility is especially important in empowering consumers as well as government agencies in providing convenient and safe payment facilities. Digitalisation of such services goes beyond simplicity and convenience. It is secure and offers a wide range of incentives that will benefit our customers and members of the public.

This partnership also allows RHB to meaningfully contribute towards a wider digitalised banking ecosystem where members of the public can experience the convenience of cashless transactions – literally at their fingertips,” said Dato’ Khairussaleh Ramli, Group Managing Director, RHB Banking Group.

“We applaud MOH’s forward looking vision in adapting to new technologies and driving digitalisation in the healthcare sector. By adopting game-changing innovations into their operating model, MOH is now well ahead of their contemporaries, being the first ministry – a pioneer – to accept fast and secure mobile transactions through Boost e-Wallet,” he added.

RHB’s collaboration with MOH started in 2018, when the Bank first facilitated cashless transactions at Government clinics using bank cards at 56 government clinics across Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Due to the high quality of services and very low charges in government health clinics across Malaysia, the ministry received a total of 20.85 million paid patients in 2017, followed by 20.86 million in 2018 and 13.86 million as at August 2019.
