This document describes the use of the Clinical Package Validator (Validator) for helping vendors test whether a clinical document conforms to some Agency specifications. It also describes how the Validator can be used to validate a clinical document package and an HL7 Medical Document Management (MDM) wrapped clinical document package.
The Validator does not test conformance against all specifications. The product data sheet lists the tests that are supported, tests partially supported, and a general description of the types of tests not supported.
Results from the Validator must not be relied upon to determine software conformance when declaring conformance to the My Health System Operator. A vendor will need to supplement results from the Validator with their own testing before declaring conformance.
Clarification: 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).
