Dear Senators do you know the answers to the following questions?

Who are the nation's eHealth leaders? Jane Halton?, Mukesh Haikerwal?, Peter Flemming?, Andrew Howard?

Right people?
Wrong people?
Anyone missing?

What credentials are needed to be a leader in eHealth?

I suppose that doing nothing will be seen as the preferred alternative to what is happening now, however in my view, doing nothing is probably preferable to trying to put in place a system that has so little chance of succeeding.

If some level of success with our current eHealth programmes weren't so important to so many peoples' enjoyment of day to day life, it would be interesting just to sit back and watch the train-smash. However we cant do that.

The dilemma is what to do next. Saying "the emperor has no clothes" and being identified as doing so is more than a "career limiting move", it is the end of your career in eHealth.

Here's hoping that our honorable senators can see what is really happening and do something about it.

Maybe in the short term there is pain. But speaking truth to power is the foundation of democracy, and longer term truth tellers who are dispassionate, and not partisan, can flourish.

And a career in ehealth is not dependent on government support. It is not a Stalinist state we live in.

Speak the truth. Plainly. Calmly. And do not make it personal, or about people, but simply about what is right and wrong. Going for people makes it personal and makes it appear partisan.

Good luck tomorrow truth tellers.

I don't think any of those people are eHealth leaders. I anything they are the problem rather than the solution. They did not think of anything important to eHealth, they know nothing about the details of eHealth and if the money they have wasted had been spend in a sensible way, with a tiny PR budget rather than Nehtas Yes Minister way of working, we would be on the road to a solid future. All spin and no substance. Leaders lead, they control the spin and do little else.

I think the first comments are confusing "Management" with "Leadership" and they are not the same. I am afraid all we have is management meandering off the path and into the weeds, but they don't even realise that. No one is leading this circus.
