Our vision is that digital health products and systems are designed, developed and operated in a manner that is consumer-centered, safe, secure and interoperable, so that quality, trusted healthcare services and information are consistently available where and where they are needed.
The Agency's Conformance and Assurance Section undertakes conformance activities in line with its Conformance Framework, which outlines the principles and overall approach to engaging with, managing, and supporting vendors to integrate with national digital health systems and develop solutions that interact in alignment to Agency conformance requirements.
Conformance activities conducted by the Agency are designed to mitigate risks and specify the way third-party software must behave when it has a connection to enable transactions with national digital health systems.
Development and administration of Conformance Assessment Schemes, comprising:
- Development of conformance profiles and conformance test specifications
- Delivery of conformance assessments
- Design, development and maintenance of conformance artefacts: test data, technical documents

Overview of the HIPS conformance journey
My Health Record Notice of Connection (NoC) and Conformance Compliance and Declaration (CCD) testing
Software products must pass testing requirements before gaining access to the My Health Record production system.
This Developer Guide provides guidance for developers on how to test their NASH SHA-2 software enhancements and submit evidence of their product’s readiness to the Agency for assessment.
The Agency is cognisant of the inherent cyber security risks posed by systems connected to and accessing the My Health Record system, as well as potentially vulnerable aspects of the national infrastructure and all services under its care.
The Security Requirements for My Health Record Connecting Systems Conformance Profile contains software requirements that harden clinical information systems from cyber security attacks, uplift information security and protect patient information and your software product.
