New data submission portal

As part of the Departments enterprise data warehouse project a new data submission portal is being introduced to handle data submissions. This is currently projected to be launched on 1 November 2013. The new portal will also conduct the data validation previously performed by Check-It 2 and replace the existing HCP email inbox/HCP secure web portal as the only way to submit your PHDB, HCP1, HCP2 and GT-Dental data files.

More detailed information and support arrangement advice will be provided prior to the launch of the portal.

It is important that we have accurate contact details for each data submitter as this information will be used to create accounts in the new data submission portal.
