If you are using Genie to record your patient's vaccinations, then you can also transmit these through to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) using your Genie software.
Please note: To use AIR Transmissions your Genie must be configured to use Medicare Online. For more information on using Medicare online within Genie, please refer to our Setting up HIC Online article.
Transmitting to AIR
Once a vaccination has been added to a patient’s clinical record (with Transmit to AIR ticked), it can be transmitted to Medicare to be recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register.
For information on adding a vaccination, please see the Vaccinations article.
To transmit vaccinations to AIR, navigate to File > Maintenance and Reports > Daily, and click the AIR Immunisations button. This will open the AIR Transmissions window.
This window will list all previous AIR transmissions that have been batched and sent. Highlighting a batch in the list on the left will display the items contained within that batch on the right.
To create and transmit a new batch, click the New Transmission button. This will open the New AIR Transmission window.
Select the appropriate Provider and Provider Number for the vaccinations to be transmitted. Of the vaccinations that appear, if you wish for any to be excluded, right click them and select Remove From Batch. When you are happy with the list of vaccinations to be transmitted, click the Create Transmission button and then Transmit. The vaccinations will then be sent to Medicare for processing.
