Advancing Population Health

Registry & Operations Services

Advancing population health with proven, reliable, scalable services

With a 30 year track record in building and operating registries, ACPCC Population Health has a reputation for quality, excellence and value for service. We were the first in Australia to develop a cervical screening register and, prior to the move to a national registry service, built and operated the Victorian and South Australian state cervical screening registers. 

We also built and operated on behalf of government, Australia’s first all age national immunisation register, the National HPV Vaccination Program Register, prior to its integration into the national whole of life immunisation register.  Our registry systems and services are responsive and scalable supporting program change, continuous improvement and initiatives to extend program reach.

We are experts in protecting and managing data, recruitment and reminder services, pathway management and follow-up services for participants and healthcare providers, data and reporting, and contact centre services.

Our Population Health Division currently operates the Compass Register and the Participant Follow-up Function (PFUF) which supports the Victorian component of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.

Recruitment and Reminder services

ACPCC Population Health has a long history of providing recruitment and reminder services as part of registry operations to extend program reach and improve participation. We understand the effectiveness of population health programs relies on identifying and targeting the right people at the right time.

Working closely with program partners, we have experience and expertise in identifying eligible persons for targeted recruitment campaigns and implementing call and recall services to support participation as per program recommendations.
