Your data is securely stored in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). The uPaged website is protected by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), which is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private. Your data is then encrypted and stored in a database that is protected by an access key.
Your uPaged profile is never visible on the world wide web or to other uPaged nurses. It can only be viewed through our secure portal in accordance with your availability preferences. This only occurs when we have activated your profile and you set your availability and geographical location. So we never show your profile to hospitals who you’re not ‘available’ to in terms of time or geographical location. You're in control.
When a manager invites you to a shift, or you apply to a shift, you are agreeing to being on-boarded by them so we provide a secure link for them to access your data for the purpose of on-boarding you. The hospital manager is prompted to review your profile to determine your suitability for the role. Please note they only see the minimum information required to determine your suitability. That is, they don't see your TFN, vaccination records, bank details etc. For example, ward managers don’t need to review your vaccination history. If and when you are booked for a shift at a new hospital, your information is sent to the onboarding contact of that hospital, like HR, to facilitate a smooth onboarding process. uPaged ensures the right information is shown to the right person at the right time, to facilitate informed decision making for you and the hospital.
You are always able to request the information we have on uPaged.
Your uPaged profile serves 2 purposes:
- YOUR PASSPORT TO WORK. It enables you to pick up casual shifts when and where you choose, or you can be invited to shifts by hospitals who want you for your skills and experience if your availability and geographic location are set by you and correspond to the hospital's requirements.
- YOUR DIGITAL NURSING PORTFOLIO. Free for life. It’s your forever resume. Update it as you choose, and get reminders when mandatories like BLS or vaccinations are due. Soon, you’ll be able to download a copy of your profile in an AHPRA-approved resume format to help you apply for jobs outside of uPaged.
At any time you can make your profile not visible to hospitals.
