Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Stuart Robert today announced the next phase of the Digital Partnership Program to improve the digital experience for NDIS participants and providers.
The National Disability Insurance Agency’s (NDIA) Digital Partnership Program, which was announced in February this year, manages controlled and secure access to some of the NDIA’s data and systems, with the latest phase expanding access to the NDIA Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to more software developers working with registered providers.
The APIs are being created so providers and software developers can build new tools, applications and digital marketplaces to improve how participants, providers and the NDIA all connect and work together.
This next phase gives more software developers who are working with registered NDIS providers the ability to request access to the NDIA’s APIs, creating more opportunities for digital experts to develop new tools and applications.
‘This next phase of the DPP is important in allowing a broader set of software developers to request access to NDIA APIs, which will help lay the foundations for a sophisticated and advanced digital environment managed by experts in the sector,’ Mr Robert said.
‘As an important step in the Australian Government’s plan to deliver the NDIS through market innovation and improved technology, we welcome and encourage more software developers to request access to the new APIs.’
‘We hope to see providers and software developers in the sector working together on solutions to improve the overall digital experience for NDIS participants.’
