What identifiers you can link

You need to link at least 1 healthcare identifier to access HPOS functions.

If you’re a health care provider you need to link at least 1 of these identifiers to access HPOS functions:

  • AHPRA number
  • Medicare provider number
  • DVA provider number or Stem (individual)
  • Healthcare Provider Identifier – Individual (HPI-I) number
  • PBS Approved Prescriber Number.

If you’re an administrator registered in the Healthcare Identifiers Service you can use 1 of these identifiers:

  • Responsible Officer number
  • Organisation Maintenance Officer number
  • Healthcare Provider Identifier – Organisation (HPI-O) number.

If you don’t have an identifier you can still:

  • use basic HPOS functions
  • access PIP or WIP – Practice Stream functions
  • access delegations.
