Paytient Payments was founded in 2017 by Ruairi Gough, a first-generation entrepreneur and businessman, with the goal of helping healthcare organisations to embrace digital payments. Having set up Dental Marketing International in 2011 and having worked with dentists in 5 countries, he identified a niche for a new dentist-orientated payments business, to help dentists move away from cash, cards and cheques, and run more efficient businesses.
The team from Paytient Payments took part in the NDRC Fintech Pre-accelerator with Helen Fullen from October to December 2017, and was delighted to win the Audience Award for best pitch 2017.
In April 2018 the Paytient Payments team became a client of Enterprise Ireland and received Feasibility Funding, to thoroughly research their idea with healthcare organisations and patients, and validate their business case around #digitalpayments4dentists
