Health Products Portal (HPP) Program

Page last updated: 25 July 2019

Background

The Health Products Portal (HPP) aims to provide a single, secure and easy to use online portal for industry to manage applications for regulated and subsidised health products and services with the Department. The HPP will be developed over several years.

Implementation approach

Industry has been actively involved in consultation and testing activities as part of the user-centric design approach.

The first release of the HPP will support industry to draft and lodge selected submissions to the Pharmaceutical Advisory Committee (PBAC) for new or amended listings on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). 

Features will be progressively added to the HPP to enable industry and the Department to manage other parts of the PBS listing process.

Once all features of the HPP are implemented, industry will be able to:

  • Register an organisation’s details
  • Draft, submit and administer applications
  • Pay invoices securely
  • Track and monitor the status of an application
  • Manage existing listings

Timing

The first release of the HPP will occur in the coming months and will be supported by user guides and communications with relevant stakeholders.

The Department will use upcoming PBAC cycle timelines as an opportunity to further engage with industry on the introduction of the HPP.
