A New E-Health Web Site Is On-Line So You Can Apply To Register for a PCEHR.

Go to www.ehealth.gov.au to explore.
Not much to see just yet.

I registered but whether I was successful or not I have no idea because I got no feedback - like Thanks you. So I registered again just in case but still no Thank You.

Why is it so?
It wasn't until I went to my inbox I found an acknowledgment of my registration.

That is just not good enough.

Seems odd a system of this investment size would allow you to register twice without alerting you to the fact?

Anyway I was tempted to participate in this PCEHR until a friend sent me a series of you tube videos from a recent PCEHR event.

Frankly if this is the level of maturity of the Security team in PCEHR then quite frankly they have a lot of work to do to convince me of joining such a scheme. The tactics although well intentioned perhaps are not what I would expect from the level of experience needed to deliver such capabilities, how the Head of PCEHR would allow this is also a little baffling, but then it usually starts at the top
I would like to point out that many of the other videos were very well presented

This is not about registering for a PCEHR - it is to register your interest in signing up for a PCEHR! There is a difference. Are they going to use this to gauge how many people just might sign on the dotted line come 1 July?

Thank you for the YouTube clip from NEHTA's recent security presentation.

I think Dr Ken Tan and NEHTA better consult their well paid legal counsel (01:20). Unashamed incompetence of the highest level.

Interesting Link - YouTube clip from NEHTA's recent security presentation

Is NEHTA now admitting that DOHA has created a target of all GP offices and networks? Are they saying NASH is such a risk to PCEHR that anyone with a simple app can now harvest information at random and the audit trail will lead directly to a GP, who will face enormous fines, probably ruin the practice and the usual social issues that go with financial ruin.
Based on this I for one will not be registry and will most certainly be prescribing my GP to these facts.
DOHA seem to be forcing GP's to adopt a system that will make them a target for hacking, this is wrong, why is DOHA, NEHTA, MSIA, AMA, RACGP and all these other interested parties not providing safeguards for the Clinicians and Consumers.
A joke and a joke through their own admission, I trust David this will not be another minor issue to be swept under the carpet, it shows just how useful your site can be, perhaps and article explaining what these all means from DOHA would be useful

The gravy train article in The Weekend Australian tells us how these people live, work and play.

When the trough is full the swine will gather and enjoy the swill as long as it lasts. The more money government pours in the more the swine swilling will continue.
