AusHealthIT Poll Number 162 – Results – 9th April, 2013. Extended Commentary.

The question was:

Do You Believe It Is Appropriate For DoHA To Be Spending Money Paying Staff To Aggressively Recruit Hospitalised (And Presumably Ill) Patients For The PCEHR / NEHRS?

Yes - Strike Where and When You Can 8% (4)
Probably 6% (3)
Probably Not 15% (7)
No - Potentially Invasive and Intrusive For Patient 69% (33)
I Have No Idea 2% (1)
Total votes: 48
Very interesting! A large majority seem to think there is a good deal wrong with the intrusive Government approach.
Latest news is that the effort is being ramped up with funded staff in white tee-shirts running all over Canberra government departments and in all sorts of health facilities all over the country harassing people to sign up.
I guess they have to spend the adoption budget before the Election or June 30.
The criteria that will matter is the actual usage rate of the record once people sign up. No stats are said to be available that I can find. If anyone knows of such stats please let us all know!
Again, many thanks to those that voted!

It is a shame that these muppets from McKinsey and PwC that are running the PCEHR Change and Adoption contract are not punished for wasting taxpayer dollars.

FFS - DOHA has dropped $29.9m on this part of the program alone without variations to the contract.


The Change and Adoption Partner consortium led by McKinsey and Company also includes PricewaterhouseCoopers, Hill & Knowlton, Workstar, Event Planet, Ocean Informatics, Alfred Health, Salmat and the Australian General Practice Network (AGPN).

WTF have they been doing??
