Provider Connect Australia to launch early next year, minus Medicare connection
The Australian Digital Health Agency’s new Provider Connect Australia (PCA) service is due to launch in January 2022, but it will be several years until Medicare is added as a business partner due to the ongoing healthcare payments modernisation project, ADHA spokespeople say.
The first release of the system, formerly known as the service registration assistant (SRA), is due to be rolled out in January, with practice managers able to access the service through a portal. The service will also integrate with clinical information and practice management systems, with the agency planning to roll out test environments complete with FHIR application programming interfaces (APIs) in October.
