Medicare Integration Updates

We have continued work on the essential Medicare Integration updates and this month we initiated the Integration Testing process and entered the Preliminary Testing phase. This involves submitting basic production-mode transmissions to Medicare Services Australia so that they can verify that our Medicare functionality meets all of the security and data handling requirements.

In the next phase, we will receive a customised test plan to review. Finally, we will execute that test plan as part of the formal Integration testing stage.
