Digital Health Procurement Guidelines

This content is draft for consultation. 


Get Started

The purpose of this Digital Health Procurement Guideline is to support the ongoing strategic priority of achieving interoperability of data and systems across Australia’s Health and Care sector.  

The Procurement Guidelines are focussed on helping to achieve consistency in the procurement process by providing guidance to procuring and contracting authorities across Australian healthcare. The guidelines set out to provide some guiding principles and practical guidance, including statements related to the digital health standards that should be considered as part of the sourcing process for technology solutions.  

The Guidelines are being developed by the Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) in a phased approach in collaboration with the Australian healthcare sector. The detail contained in the sections below will be further expanded as the development of the guidelines continues.
