You can familiarise yourself with the registration process through either:

You will first need to establish your team members’ roles and responsibilities as they relate to interacting with the Healthcare Identifiers Service and My Health Record.

The fundamental steps for registering are:

  2. Register with the Healthcare Identifiers (HI) Service for a Healthcare Provider Identifier – Organisation (HPI-O)
  3. Register to participate in My Health Record
  4. Apply for a National Authentication Service for Health (NASH) Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Certificate

If you are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), you will already have a HPI-I. To find it:

If you are not registered with AHPRA, complete the Application to register a Healthcare Provider (HW033). You will need to provide evidence of your identity and documents supporting your registration in a professional association related to the healthcare you provide.
