HOTSPUR Portal registration information

What is the HOTSPUR Portal?

The HOTSPUR Portal is an easy to use, online facility that provides State & Territory Departments of Health (SDoH) and DVA with a streamlined system for sending, receiving, processing and viewing hospital activity data, and enabling the reconciliation of admitted, non-admitted, emergency and aggregate data types.

SDoH representatives can securely upload public hospital activity data at any time, view payments made under their Arrangement, view and accept reconciliations, and manage and view their activity data.

How to register to use the Portal

The HOTSPUR Portal requires a secure login. Each portal "user" requires authorisation from their State Department of Health and DVA to use the HOTSPUR Portal. The State Department of Health HOTSPUR Portal Manager verifies the identity of the user and vouches for their authority to enable access and to share information using the Portal.

Before you can access the HOTSPUR Portal, you'll also need a Provider Digital Access (PRODA) account, to enable secure access to DVA Online Services. This security credential protects your security and privacy when dealing with us online.

How to get a PRODA account

To register an individual PRODA account, go to and from the side menu select "How to register for an individual account". Please note:

o You are required to verify 100 points of Proof of Identity online, such as a driver's licence, passport or Medicare card.

o You must register your own account using your own identification documents. You must not create an account for someone else or share your secure access details.

o If you already have an individual PRODA account, you do not need register again
