AUSkey: Accessing the Portal

There are a few things health services need to do to access the Portal.

Firstly you will require an AUSkey to access the Portal. An AUSkey is a secure login key attached to one person and one organisation. When you login to the Portal it will automatically search and find the AUSkey software you previously downloaded. The AUSkey tells the Portal who you are and what organisation you are working for. Once this authentication is complete you will access the Portal. A guide on how to register for the Portal is available to support you.

Some of you may be very familiar with using an AUSkey however others may have never used them. Refer to the Australia Business Register web site for more information about AUSkey including how to obtain one.
