Provider Connect Australia

Provider Connect Australia (PCA) is a service operated by the Australian Digital Health Agency to streamline the process of healthcare provider organisations keeping their business partners up-to-date with details of the services they provide and the practitioners that provide them.

Manually notifying business partners whenever an organisation’s service delivery details change is not only cumbersome but can lead to human error.

Healthcare provider organisations will soon be able to use Provider Connect Australia to connect with their business partners and streamline updates of the services they provide and the practitioners that provide them.

Australian Digital Health Agency CEO, Amanda Cattermole says: "By providing consistent, up to date information about healthcare services to funders, hospitals, health service directories, communications services and other key partners in healthcare delivery, Provider Connect Australia will ensure that providers and consumers have access to the information they need when they need it. This will lead to a more efficient, connected, and accessible healthcare system".
