New Medical Claims Electronic Data Transfer (MC EDT) Web Service is ready for conformance testing.
The Ministry has announced that electronic data transfer (EDT) and health card validation (HCV) will be upgraded to an internet web service. IHFs will no longer be required to use a dedicated line, instead using a web portal-like platform called EBS (Electronic Business Service). A number of measures are being implemented to assure the integrity and confidentiality of all communications that are to be transmitted over this new system. All software designed to access the MC EDT web service must be conformance tested to ensure compliance. We will update you as new information is forthcoming.
