HIC Online and Eclipse
ECLIPSE is a Medicare Australia e-Business initiative that connects health sector locations
(e.g., medical practices, hospitals, health funds) through a central "hub" (i.e., Medicare Australia)
to support electronic claiming and associated business functions.
Please note that our use of the name
ECLIPSE here encompasses 'Medicare Australia Online Claiming' (previously known as 'HIC Online',
and before that 'Easyclaim').
Over the past few years, many of the Funky People team have worked on or around the ECLIPSE
project in senior technical roles. Through this we have gained substantial knowledge and experience:
- with the ECLIPSE solution architecture and technology, including the mainstream
(e.g., HTTP, XML, PKI) and the esoteric (e.g., HOP3, Logic Packs)
- more generally in the development and operation of a large-scale, contemporary
Business-to-Business (B2B) capability over a sustained period of time.
It is emphasised that Funky People as an entity does not have (and has not ever had) any
formal association with the ECLIPSE project (including Medicare Australia Online Claiming and
HIC Online). The ECLIPSE-related content on this site is information that is already in the
public domain, or that represents our original work.
