Technology resources for COVID-19
Updated on June 30 Listed are some of the technological resources available to medical practices, allied health practices, pharmacies, hospitals, aged and community care during the coronavirus outbreak.
Medipass telehealth claims
Card payment technology provider Medipass updated its platform to support COVID-19 MBS item codes, updates to item codes that can now be used in a telehealth consult, as well as existing telehealth MBS item codes in April. It has now made all telehealth claims, whether through Medicare, the Department of Veterans Affairs or private health insurance, free of charge until September 30.
Medipass allows practices to process a payment simply and quickly in a telehealth situation or take a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card payment over the phone without needing to use a terminal. The system has supported telehealth since last year but has seen a surge in activity since the crisis.
It is integrated with allied health practice management software systems Cliniko and Nookal, along with telehealth service Doctors on Demand and there are plans to integrate with Coviu.
It is also now live with online appointment booking service MyHealth1st as part of its new telehealth solution and with Owner Health, an online booking service for home and mobile physiotherapy consultations.
