What to Expect

ACC consumed services provide a mixture of “build it yourself” and “nearly ready to consume” offerings; IDE, SendInvoice, & SFT are examples of the latter, APIs are an example of the former.

There is more upfront investment in APIs so ACC only offers these for mature business processes proven over many years; they are for multi-transactions on a regular 24x7 basis. The ultimate for APIs is to have them absorbed into a business process resulting in minimal impact on software users. For example: an ACC claim is a subset of all information collected by a GP / Physio when addressing patient need; their practice management system user experience can remain the same and naturally extract ACC claim information behind-the-scenes at the end of the consult; same too with the resulting invoice.

These are the key steps you'll need to do to create your app using our APIs.
