Quick Intro

You will be visiting this page if you develop clinical information systems which are used by healthcare providers and you want your users to be able to view and/or upload information to the My Health Record system.

Whether you are viewing or uploading, you will also need to connect your software to the Healthcare Identifiers Service (HI Service) which allows you to uniquely identify patients and healthcare providers in your local system.

We have 11 developer guides below to get you registered and developing quickly for your HI Service and My Health Record development. Be sure to read the introduction first as you will need to submit documentation for your organisation to access the test environments, this step can take several days to process. The introduction guide also provides important information about setting up your local development environment and test environment certificates.
