Clinical software integration

The NCSR has developed a non-proprietary and standardised common interface (REST FHIR API 2.0) which allows you to integrate your clinical software (excluding lab software).

This allows you to seamlessly access and report clinical data for the bowel and cervical screening programs from the patient management software you use on a daily basis.

Lowered eligible age for bowel screening

From 1 July 2024, people aged 45 to 49 can join the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.


You can request a kit for an eligible patient via the Healthcare Provider Portal or issue them a kit via the alternative access to kits model. Alternatively, you or your patient can request a kit by submitting a webform or calling 1800 627 701.
