Provider Connect Australia Logo

Provider Connect Australia is a service operated by the Australian Digital Health Agency that connects healthcare provider organisations to their business partners.

Quick Intro

Healthcare provider organisations use Provider Connect Australia to keep their business partners up to date with details about their organisation, locations, healthcare services, and the practitioners that provide these services.

Healthcare provider organisations can maintain their details in PCA by using the PCA web application or a conformant publishing system. Publishing systems could include practice management software, clinical information systems or other administrative systems.

Publishing systems that integrate with the PCA FHIR API will be able to synchronise saved details that are already stored in the publishing system with PCA.

Business partners can use PCA to receive information that has been published to them from healthcare provider organisations. Business partners can receive notifications from PCA when information has changed or new data is available, to ensure that their customer details are always kept up to date.

Business partners that integrate with the PCA FHIR API will be able to:

  • Receive real time notifications when new changes are available
  • Query the API for all changes since the last query
  • Automate the matching and processing of data that has been published to them
  • Prefill online forms using PCA to streamline the registration process for their customers
  • Query the API for all changes since the last query
  • Receive real time notifications when new changes are available
