Generating an API Key
The first step in setting up your Medipass/Cliniko integration is to generate and copy an API key, or 'secret key', from your Medipass account. An API key is a code that allows you to link the information from one application (Medipass) to another (Cliniko).
Important: Any application with access to your API key will have access to all of the information in that account. Keep your API keys as secure as your password and only provide them to systems you trust.
To generate an API key from your Medipass account, first select your account name in the top right hand corner.
Then select "Medipass account"
You can then scroll to the bottom of this page to the "API keys" section and select "Generate API key"
Copy the key that appears by clicking on the little blue clipboard icon.
Next up: follow these instructions to paste the key into your Cliniko account and set up your integration.
You can also watch this great video here, made by Joel from Cliniko, which walks through the steps of setting up this integration and introduces Medicare claiming.
