The Department of Human Services are upgrading their digital health and aged care channels. The following MediRecords claiming channels will move from the current adapter technology to web services:
- Medicare Online
- ECLIPSE channel
Practice owners and doctors are likely to start receiving notifications of these pending changes over the coming months.
Don’t worry, these services won’t switch over to web services until March 2022. The MediRecords team are already working with the Department to upgrade our systems during 2020 for Bulk Bill, DVA and PCI. Medicare Eclipse Claiming will follow during 2021 as and when the Department open up the channel for production use from March 2021.
What does this mean for MediRecords customers?
There is NO impact to our existing or new customers. In fact, the on-boarding, setup & configuration of Medicare Claiming Services will be simpler once we fully implement the new web services technology. Error messaging and rejection management is also likely to improve under the new technology platform.
