I Am Not Sure I Can Stand Too Much More of This! The PCEHR Seems To Have A New Name!
What on earth is going on (that is the polite way of saying it I really meant WTF!).
I came across this today.
Welcome to the fourth clinician e-newsletter brought to you by the Clinical Unit of the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) providing information on key issues and current events related to e-health in Australia.
Edition: 04 Date: Tuesday, 27 September 2011
The lead item is this:
NEHTA has commenced preliminary work on developing the concept of operations for a PCEHR: bringing together many ideas about what could be on an Electronic Health Record Summary. The Clinical Leads and other stakeholders participated in a two-day workshop in Brisbane in mid-July to contribute to the development of a hymn sheet to which there was some agreement and therefore a fixed ‘target’ PEHRS which could then be socialised and e-health architecture built around it. This document will form the basis for drawing in consumers and clinicians in particular into the developments. A workshop will be held in August to complete this work. Additional workshops involving the NEHTA Clinical Lead group and consumers to discuss options for the proposed PCEHR/ PEHRS are planned.
Go here for other news:
What on earth does this mean? Who has slipped their moorings? Do we need any more acronyms? Does aka mean ‘also known as’? Where has this come from?
And WTF does this mean?
“The Clinical Leads and other stakeholders participated in a two-day workshop in Brisbane in mid-July to contribute to the development of a hymn sheet to which there was some agreement and therefore a fixed ‘target’ PEHRS which could then be socialised and e-health architecture built around it.”
How are hymns involved and so on?
Walks off shaking head! They have utterly lost the plot is the only viable conclusion!
