About the Health Products Portal

The Health Products Portal (HPP) is part of a multi-year program of work in the Department. The overall vision is to provide a single, secure and easy to use place where industry can interact with government to apply, track, pay, and manage listings for regulated and reimbursed health related products and services.

In the 2021-22 Budget, the Government announced that it will provide $36.0 million over four years (and $1.6 million per year ongoing) to expand the Health Products Portal (HPP) to provide a single digital channel for industry to manage regulated and reimbursed health related products and services on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS), Prostheses List (PL) and the National Immunisation Program (NIP).

This forms part of the Commonwealth’s deregulation agenda to reduce unnecessary regulatory burden and support Australia’s economic recovery by making it easier for businesses to get people into jobs and interact with government

The Department of Health (the Department) has been working to digitise and simplify the processes to support regulated and reimbursed health related products and services. The Department launched the HPP in October 2019 focusing on the pharmaceutical industry and management of items on the PBS. Significant progress has been made via the ongoing build and implementation of the HPP. The HPP currently allows organisations to apply, track, manage and pay for a range of submission services.

The HPP aligns with the Australian Government’s Digital Service Standard and is being developed in consultation with industry groups and end users (through user research and beta testing activities) as part of a user-centred approach.

The Department is in the process of expanding the HPP user base to support the management of regulated and reimbursed health related products and services. You can find out about updates to the HPP by attending Industry webinars or registering in the HPP.
