For new software vendors
Medicare Australia works collaboratively with software vendors to develop eBusiness products and initiatives. There are several programs Medicare Australia works with:
- Medicare Online Claiming
- Aged Care
The process to develop for one of these programs is as follows:
Step 1 - Medicare Australia Developers’ Agreement:
In order to develop for one of the above programs, a Medicare Australia Developers’ Agreement must be in place. This Agreement establishes the terms and agreements between a software vendor and Medicare Australia. To obtain further information and a copy of the Agreement please contact Online Technical Support (OTS)Liaison via the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
Step 2 - Medicare Australia Developers Kit:
Once the Medicare Australia Developers Agreement has been executed by Medicare Australia, OTS Liaison will send a Developers’ Kit. The contents of the Developers’ Kit will vary depending on the program but may include:
- Client adaptor
- Location certificates (PKI)
- Test data
Step 3 - Development:
OTS Help Desk will assist vendors during the development stage with diagnosing and resolving technical issues. There is no time frame for vendors to meet while developing.
Step 4 – Integration:
OTS Product Integration verifies that vendors' software products have been correctly integrated with Medicare Australia's online channels. Software Vendors must book in for and complete this verification process prior to gaining access to the Medicare Australia production environment.
