After registering with Medicare, the following files need to be installed to use Eclipse in Access Anaesthetics.
- Eclipse files. We have packaged a number of Medicare files into an "Eclipse setup file" which you can download below. This will install the Online Claiming software from Medicare Australia, and set some required environment variables. You will also be prompted to install the PKI Certificate Manager. This is required to install your Location Certificate.
- Location Certificate. Install your Location/Site Certificate using the PKI Certificate Manager. You will require the CD and password that you received from Medicare Australia when you registered your practice location. To begin, click Start > Control Panel > PKI Certificate Manager. Then follow the instructions below. For networked versions of AA, the certificate store (hic.psi) must be located in a server location. We recommend putting it in the same folder as the data files. The pki certificate manager can also be downloaded separately from this Medicare website.
- Java. Java is required for Online Claiming. If you already have Java installed you may skip this step. Install Java from http://www.java.com/en/. We recommend installing the latest 32 bit version (not the 64 bit version). Eclipse does not always work with the latest version of Java, so we have provided some older versions below if required.
- Individual certificate. Optionally install any individual certificates you have obtained from Medicare Australia. These may be used with Access Anaesthetics if you wish, but are not required.
