LanternPay11 September 2017
The Victorian Government has launched a new payment system that will transform the way Victorian medical and health practitioners transact with the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and improve care for Victorians.
The new payment platform, LanternPay, will save TAC service providers’ time and money, allowing them to focus on helping their patients get better.
Minister for Finance Robin Scott today joined physiotherapist Mark Round to launch LanternPay, which moves the TAC from a paper-based to a digital payment process.
LanternPay allows providers to immediately confirm client eligibility, submit a digital invoice and receive payment from the TAC the next business day.
The platform is currently accessible on desktops, tablets and smartphones, and will be integrated with some of the healthcare industry’s most widely used practice management software systems next year.
The TAC’s shift to an automated payment process follows extensive feedback from health professionals, who said they wanted to spend less time on administration and more time helping TAC clients get their lives back on track.
