What certification is...

The Compliance and Certification services offered by AHML provide independent assurance to healthcare organisations that their electronic messaging conforms to required standards and specifications. The advantage of Certification is that a Certification Officer works with your company to ensure the compliance of your message. This involves the Certification Officer working with the client to correct any forms of non-compliance in messages.

During the Certification process, AHML tests and evaluates the compliance of messages generated from software products and systems with recognised International and Australian standards, and provides formal recognition to products and systems through a rigorous process.

Compliance services provide clients with independent assurance that message format, content and business rules assosciated with electronic message functions in a software system conform, as claimed, to the applicable standards. The Compliance services can also provide assurance of compliance to additional specifications covering message format, content and business rules implemented locally.
