Aug 11, Colombo: HNB SOLO partnered with Lanka Hospitals for LANKAQR payment solutions enabling access to timely medical assistance while strengthening the country’s cashless and contactless payment sphere.

Sri Lanka’s leading private sector bank HNB PLC recently partnered with Lanka Hospitals, one of the country’s largest private hospitals, to launch the LANKAQR payment facility.

The partnership offers customers the option of completing a transaction by scanning the Dynamic QR code, a unique QR code generated for the transaction. This allows customers using an app linked with the LANKAQR initiative to make contactless purchases at stores by simply scanning the Dynamic QR, which appears on the display screen of the Point of Sale (PoS) machine.

HNB SOLO is available at all 20 cashier touch points in Lanka Hospitals in addition to 23 pharmacy outlets operated by Lanka Hospitals that are located in 19 Keells Supermarkets countrywide, at One Galle Face Mall in Colombo, Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation (SLIC) main branch, Central Bank and Premasiri Supermarket in Colpetty.

Customers who wish to make their purchases via HNB SOLO will be eligible for a range of benefits including a 20% discount on health checkups such as executive healthcare packages, full-body packages, senior citizens’ health checkups and mammogram. Customers also have the option of completing their transactions through various methods of payments such as VISA, Master Card or JustPay with just the press of a button and the swipe of a screen.

Commenting on the partnership, HNB AGM, Digital Business, Chammika Weerasinghe said “The pandemic may have driven the initial conversion to QR-based payments, but we are now seeing a new wave of customers using the facility for convenience and reliability across QR-enabled platforms like HNB SOLO. Our tech infrastructure positions us to lead this expansion, and we are delighted to partner Lanka Hospitals in driving digital Payments."

Adding their thoughts on the partnership, Lanka Hospitals Group CEO, Deepthi Lokuarachchi said, "Lanka Hospitals is pleased to partner with HNB, one of Sri Lanka’s leading banks by offering its clientele a range of exclusive benefits which we believe will enable us to expand our loyalty base. Additionally, in these times it is necessary to provide additional incentives where possible to relieve the burdens of the people in the form of healthcare benefits that are easy to access and utilize at a discounted rate. We hope that these benefits will provide comfort and convenience to HNB SOLO app users who choose to seek care and treatment at Lanka Hospitals."

The facility is beneficial to the hospital as integrating HNB’s system with their cash PoS results in real time payment confirmation to their account. Moreover, having linked LANKAQR to HNB SOLO, the bank was among the first financial institutions and telecommunication partners to join the CBSL in promoting digital payments as the standard day-today transactions island-wide.

Launched in 2019 as HNB’s flagship digital payment solution, SOLO provides the convenience of digital transactions via affordable, easy and widely- adaptable QR code, a cost-effective option compared to alternative payment solutions available in the market.
