NASH organisation certificates now available directly through HPOS
The AMA advises that recent changes have been made to how organisations interact with My Health Record.
A National Authentication Service for Health (NASH) certificate is required by organisations that wish to interact with the My Health Record system using conformant software. In August, a change allowed healthcare professional organisations to request a NASH organisation certificate via Health Professional Online Services (HPOS), however the certificate was still posted to the organisation on a CD. The new functionality allows the NASH certificate to be downloaded securely via HPOS by Organisation Maintenance Officers. The certificate will be available for download for a period of 30 days from when it is issued.
The links below provide information for your organisation on how to apply, link, register and revoke NASH PKI certificates through HPOS.
- Online NASH Certificate - Request Process v1.0
- Online NASH Certificate - PRODA-HPOS Login Process v1.0
- Online NASH Certificate - Revoke Process v1.0
Please note that organisations whose existing NASH Public Key Infrastructure certificates expire after the 7th of November 2018 will no longer automatically receive a CD in the mail but instead will be sent a letter approximately 60 days before the certificate expires notifying you of the expiry date and directing you to download a new certificate through HPOS.
