Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Register
We are required by the Privacy (Australian Government Agencies – Governance) APP Code 2017 (Cth) (the Code) to conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for projects with a high privacy risk.
A project may be a high privacy risk if we consider that the project involves any new or changed ways of handling personal information that are likely to have a significant impact on the privacy of individuals.
We are required by the Code to maintain a register of the PIAs it conducts. We have listed all PIAs conducted by us since we commenced operations on 1 July 2016.

Electronic Prescribing Conformance Register
A register of conforming software products has been created to ensure that software developers are creating software that is conformant to government legislation, and for healthcare providers and vendors to understand which software companies are conformant. Find out more on My Health Record.
A register of conforming software products
This register will be used for the following stakeholders:
- Open prescription delivery services will be able to integrate into systems, this allows for vendors to connect into the operations of the electronic prescribing environment.
- Health care providers will be able to make decisions on which electronic prescribing software they use, based on whether the software is conformant to legislation.
- Regulators will also be able to see and understand which software is conformant and follows government legislation.
