PCEHR means the My Health Record, formerly the "Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record", within the meaning of the My Health Records Act 2012 (Cth), formerly called the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records Act 2012 (Cth).

By operation of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (Establishing the Australian Digital Health Agency) Rule 2016, on 1 July 2016, all the assets and liabilities of NEHTA will vest in the Australian Digital Health Agency. In this website, on and from 1 July 2016, all references to "National E-Health Transition Authority" or "NEHTA" will be deemed to be references to the Australian Digital Health Agency.

Your product must pass the Notice of Connection (NOC) and conformance testing before it is ready for to go live. You will be able to re-test your product if it does not pass either of these tests.

If you wish to re-test a product that already connects to the My Health Record system, please go to the retest section.

Notice of Connection (NOC)

Before beginning this step, you must request formal NOC testing with the National Infrastructure Operator Software Vendor Testing (SVT) by requesting and completing two forms, and emailing them to pcehr.svt.support@accenture.com.

  • NOC Vendor Test Request
  • My Health Record system NOC Test Cases for Vendor Client self-assessment

Conformance

Your product must pass the conformance test specifications, and you need to record the test results in the conformance test specifications. You can save a copy of your test results for future reference.

The National Infrastructure Operator Software Vendor Testing provides CCD environment support, while the Agency provides technical support.

Self-Assessment

The Agency no longer observes software to check for conformance requirements. Instead, you must declare conformance by submitting a My Health Record system Conformance Vendor Declaration form which is included in the welcome pack.

The My Health Record System Operator will monitor documents uploaded to the My Health Record system and may contact you as part of its program to monitor conformance.

Please note:

  • When the Agency issues a new version of specifications, developers who have implemented an earlier version will need to upgrade to the new version within a specified timeframe, typically two years from the release of the new version.
  • When you implement the new version of specifications, you will need to complete the My Health Record system Conformance Vendor Declaration form confirming the software meets all the conformance requirements, and submit it to the My Health Record System Operator.
