What is the Clinical Package Validator?

The Clinical Package Validator (Validator) is a tool to automate some of the tests needed to assess conformance of clinical documents and clinical packages with eHealth specifications.

It does not test conformance against all requirements. The Product Data Sheet contained in the release details the sets of tests that are supported, those that are partially supported, and contains a general description of the types of tests that are not supported.

The Validator is a tool to support software developers in testing their software; however, results from the Validator must not be relied upon to determine software conformance when declaring conformance to the My Health Record System Operator. Developers need to supplement results from the Validator with their own testing before declaring conformance.

Thank you for your continued support.

Regards, Innovation and Development Team
