This Agreement is an electronic contract made between Precedence Health Care Pty Ltd (ABN 60 115 940 120) (Precedence) and the General Practitioner Entity (you). This agreement is supplementary to the terms of use posted on the cdmNet website (Terms of Use) and incorporates those terms into this agreement.


You are required to enter into this agreement where, as a care provider who is also a registered member of cdmNet, you seek to acquire certain features of the services available within cdmNet.

Specifically, Precedence agrees to provide the Chronic Disease Management Service (cdmNet), described on the web page, to individual general practitioners who provide chronic disease management services to patients in your practice (Authorised General Practitioners), together with professional support staff working with those Authorised General Practitioners (other eligible persons), subject to payment by you on the terms set out below.


In order to access the cdmNet website, a General Practitioner must have a current Medicare provider number and must use this number when registering for the cdmNet service. Precedence accepts no responsibility in the event that you or an individual General Practitioner allows their Medicare provider number registration to lapse or provides an incorrect provider number to Precedence.

Terms of Use

General Practitioners and other eligible persons will be granted access subject to their acceptance of the Terms of Use.

Precedence Disclaimer

Precedence cannot and does not guarantee that information provided on the cdmNet website is correct, complete or up to date.

Precedence takes all reasonable measures to verify the identity of health care providers who register for the service but cannot guarantee the identity of the recipient.

Precedence is not accountable for any loss attributable to an interruption to the cdmNet caused by circumstances beyond its control, or any corruption of data or any errors or delays occurring for any reason.

Precedence excludes all liability for special, indirect or consequential loss or damage sustained by you as a result of a breach of this agreement by

Precedence or any failure of the cdmNet, and Precedence’s direct losses are limited to a refund of transaction fees.

To the extent that non-excludable terms and conditions are implied by statute, Precedence’s liability for a breach of those terms or conditions is limited to the full extent permissible by that statute. Otherwise, all implied terms are excluded from this agreement.


You are responsible for payment of the charges specified below (Schedule of Fees) for all Authorised General Practitioners. For the avoidance of doubt, payments are determined by reference to the number of transactions enabled by cdmNet and attributable to the provider numbers of the Authorised General Practitioners.

Precedence will charge you monthly based on the transactions made in the previous month. Please note that regardless of the date upon which you accept this agreement, you will be charged for cdmNet services provided in the full month from the date of registration of each Authorised General Practitioner.

Precedence may engage a third party to act as its agent for the purpose of invoicing and collecting our fees. You consent to us disclosing such information (including confidential and personal information) to such a third party for the sole purpose of discharging this responsibility.

Payment can be made in accordance with the particulars set out below (Schedule of Fees).


Either party may terminate this agreement at any time. If you wish to terminate this agreement, please contact Precedence Health Care via the Support Centre as detailed on the cdmNet website. Precedence expressly reserves such other rights, including rights of termination, as are set out in the Terms of Use.

The provisions of this Agreement can be varied by Precedence in its sole discretion. Members will be notified at login to cdmNet of any changes to the agreement.

This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Victoria, Australia.
