Description

Allows software vendors to create a medical certificate with ACC.
The medical certificate is a secondary interaction (linked to a Claim) if
1. A patient:

  • Needs time off work beyond the first two weeks;
  • Needs additional support to operate in life or getting to / from work;
  • Presents additional complications that need to be considered;

2. The Provider:

  • Needs extra support services to assist with diagnosis.

This can only be generated by a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner. They are mostly generated with the claim at the patient first visit but can be generated as part of a subsequent visit or by a different registered provider at a subsequent visit.

Testing scenarios can be found here, and FAQs here.

To learn more about the overall API process check out Get ConnectedLearn More and our Release Notes.
