Accessing the NCSR

The Healthcare Provider Portal and integration with clinical information systems enables providers (e.g., general practitioners, nurses, and other specialists) to access and submit bowel and cervical screening data electronically in a self-service fashion.

The introduction of these channels provides an alternative for interacting with the NCSR to improve user experience and reduce reliance on paper, fax and phone calls.

Manage your patients participation in the screening programs via:

The Healthcare Provider Portal

A self-service alternative for health professionals to access and submit patient screening data for the bowel and cervical screening programs.

Integrating your clinical software

Seamlessly access and report clinical data for the bowel and cervical screening programs from the patient management software you use on a daily basis.

Gaining access to participant information

Healthcare providers and practice/lab staff who require access to participant information held within the NCSR for the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program and the National Cervical Screening Program need one of the following levels of access:

Follow the instructions in the Healthcare Provider Portal User Guide. Or provide it to the Contact Centre Operator when calling the NCSR.

Nurses and medical practice/lab staff who do not have an MPN can be a delegate of a provider with an MPN.

When accessing the Healthcare Provider Portal, the healthcare provider you are requesting to be the delegate of must be a registered user within the Portal. Follow the instructions in the Healthcare Provider Portal User Guide.

The Register Identifier Number is a unique number used to authenticate cervical screening test providers who do not have access to an MPN, when accessing the Healthcare Provider Portal or calling the NCSR Contact Centre.

Depending on the requirements of the state or territory, healthcare providers who deliver services across multiple locations may have multiple Register Identifier Numbers.

To register for a Register Identifier Number and gain access to participant information held in the NCSR, you will need to complete the Register Identifier Number request form or call the Contact Centre on 1800 627 701 and provide the following information:

  • full name
  • clinic/practice name and phone number

The Contact Centre operator will call your clinic/practice to confirm your details. Further information may be requested if the operator is unable to verify your details.

Please note: To access the portal, you will need a PRODA account (an online identity verification and authentication system used to enable secure access to government online services). Please ensure the details in your Register Identifier Number request form match your PRODA details exactly.

Once complete, follow the instructions in the Healthcare Provider Portal User Guide.
