The Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) is pleased to advise that the Healthcare Identifier (HI) Conformance Compliance and Accreditation (CCA) testing will be transitioned from IV&V Australia to the Agency from 1st of November 2020.
The purpose of this page is to outline the changes implemented in September 2018 to the Healthcare Identifiers (HI) Service to enable a National Authentication Service for Health (NASH) PKI organisation certificate.
The Australian Digital Health Agency provides sample code to assist software development and integration with the Healthcare Identifiers Service and the My Health Record system. Most sample code is available in .NET and Java. To see the full list, please visit the eHealth Reference Platform section on the Australian Digital Health Agency website or GitHub. Read more....
The Healthcare Identifiers Service (HI) is a national system for uniquely identifying individuals and healthcare providers. HIs help to ensure individuals and providers can have confidence that the correct information is associated with the correct individual at the point of care.
The eHealth integration toolkits are a collection of integration tools and sample code resources available in both .NET and Java. The sample code and integration tools are used within the eHealth Reference Platform, forming part of the code library for tools and simulators.
If you would like to connect your software to the My Health Record system, you are in
the right place.
The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) provides several mechanisms for software to interact with the My Health Record system.
Please read the options below and click to continue. If you are unsure which option is best, please contact us

After successfully executing the IHI Lookup, it is important to modify your implementation to meet the Test Cases for the Use Cases we have built to. Continued from: IHI Lookup - HI Service Developer Guide 1
Your software will need to conduct lookups for Individual Healthcare Identifiers (IHIs) for patients. This is conducted when registering a new patient, updating a patient in your local system, and in some other specific circumstances. This can be done in batch, or individually. Our example will focus on looking up a patient IHI individually.
My Health Record is a secure online summary of an individual’s health information and is available to all Australians. Healthcare providers authorised by their healthcare organisation can access My Health Record to view and add patient health information.
Please follow these steps to register your software product with the My Health Record system vendor (SVT) test environment. This is applicable for new products connections or conformant software enhancements.
The software will enable the upload of pathology or diagnostic imaging reports to the My Health Record system, and the viewing of the My Health Record system by authorised representatives of the diagnostic services organisations. This means that the software should:
Integrate to the HI Service for the purpose of sourcing and validating healthcare identifiers;
Support the use of NASH digital credentials for the purpose of authentication to the My Health Record system;
The Australian Digital Health Agency (“the Agency”) has released new and updated versions of the following Integration Toolkits. In addition, the Agency has announced it will use GitHub to enhance collaboration and sharing with developers.
The primary objective of the Victorian IHI Pre-Implementation project is to develop a suite of system design artefacts to support integration of the national Individual Healthcare Identifier into health services’ patient administration systems.
