The Agency has a number of training materials to help you make the transition to digital health as a healthcare professional, GP, specialist or allied health practice.
Healthcare providers can now familiarise themselves with the digital health functions in their software without the need for a real patient. Each software vendor provides training in the use of their products – including its digital health functions, however the Agency has brought together a range of software demonstrations and training platforms focussed specifically on digital health. While initially this page will focus on software used in primary care, many of these products are also used by specialists and allied health professionals.
If you would like to see a particular digital health feature or software product demonstration and it is not included here, contact the Help Centre.

Under new guidelines, from 1 July 2015, the Agency will no longer observe vendor self-assessments. Instead, vendors will 'self-declare' conformance to My Health Record specifications under a new 'Conformance, Compliance and Declaration (CCD) process'.
We have run a number of training webinars to help build knowledge on using digital health. All presentation slide packs can be found on our website.
