Mater Doctor Portal

What is Mater Doctor Portal?

Mater Doctor Portal (MDP) is a tool that improves communication with Mater's health care partners to enhance continuity of patient care.

Initiated in 2010, MDP contributes to Mater’s objective of putting the patient first, improving the quality and timeliness of patient information.

Alongside improving the availability of health information to authorised individuals, groups and  organisations, MDP has been designed to:

  • maintain the privacy and confidentiality of patients when sharing health information as per the security standards defined by the National eHealth Transition Authority (NEHTA)
  • provide a secure electronic mechanism for participating providers to share information from their compliant practice management systems
  • provide a secure web process for sharing health information between Mater and affiliated external health care providers
  • enhance the patient experience by improving the exchange of clinical information between Mater and external health care providers (including Queensland Health)
  • provide a single point of access to Mater’s electronic patient information

MyMater ID

Mater has introduced a new online security platform, MyMater ID' to improve clinician access by removing the reliance on Medicare PKI keys.

If you are a current MDP user you can still log in using your Medicare PKI key, however this service will be phased out in favour of MyMater ID.

How to register for MyMater ID

Current users - migrating your Medicare PKI key access

Medicare PKI key users can migrate their key by going to https://portal.mater.org.au, ensuring the PKI key is correctly installed into the PC, and clincking the MyMater ID button to start the migration.

What if my PKI key is not working?
There are a number of reasons why your PKI key may not be working. The key may have expired, a forgotten password, or if you have a newer key it simply may not be compatible with MDP. If you are experiencing problems with your PKI key, please register in the same way as a new MyMater ID user, below.

New MyMater ID registration

If you have never used MDP before, and you would like to sign up, please visit https://doctorportal.mater.org.au. Click through the MyMater ID button to start registration.

Instructions are available through the registration page, however you can find assistance by email at materdoctorportal@mater.org.au or telephone 1800 228 470.
