Coming soon – Provider connect Australia
Provider Connect Australia (PCA) is operated by the Australian Digital Health Agency. It connects healthcare organisations with their business partners to streamline updates of the services they provide and the practitioners providing them.
Currently, when a new general practitioner (GP) leaves or starts working at a general practice, multiple forms with the same information needs to be sent out to a range of business partners so they can update their information. These partners include Primary Health Networks, Medicare, heath services directories and a range of other services that support general practices and GPs to deliver healthcare.
PCA streamlines the update of information across multiple business partners by allowing services to integrate with practice management systems so that when the local general practice system is updated other businesses are automatically updated with the new details as well.
PCA is still underdevelopment and is expected to be available between late 2022 and early 2023.
