Provider Connect Australia Update

In News by PHN Communications

Provider Connect Australia (PCA™) is a new service operated by the Australian Digital Health Agency that will change how you update information about healthcare services and practitioners, eliminating the need to keep multiple directories up-to-date manually. 

PCA™ is a centralised service which reduces duplication and streamlines notifications for general practice, Aboriginal Medical Services, private specialists, allied health professionals, Local Health Districts, community pharmacies and more.  

When you update your information with PCA™ it will automatically be sent to your nominated hospitals, pathology and radiology services, public service directories, secure messaging providers and more. This means only a single master copy of your organisation’s details needs to be maintained, with chosen business partners automatically updated whenever any details change. This saves you time, reduces human error, and removes the hassle of filling out multiple forms.  

Across Australia, 1,900 healthcare organisations are using PCA™ and a growing number of business partners are coming on board. The more business partners that come onboard, the more valuable PCA™ is as a healthcare provider resource. Over time, business partners will include pathology and radiology services, public service directories, secure messaging providers, insurers and more. 

 Security is a key design element of PCA™ which adheres to Australian Government security requirements.
