THE Gillard government’s $500 million personally controlled e-health record program will come under scrutiny at a Senate inquiry into the enabling legislation tabled in Parliament last week.
The Selection of Bills Committee has referred the PCEHR bills for examination of issues related to the system’s design and capabilities, security and the potential for exposure of sensitive information.
