This blog is totally independent and has only three major objectives.
The first is to inform readers of news and happenings in the e-Health domain, both here in Australia and world-wide.
The second is to provide commentary on e-Health in Australia and to foster improvement where I can.
The third is to encourage discussion of the matters raised in the blog so hopefully readers can get a balanced view of what is really happening and what successes are being achieved.

I Wonder What Really Happened With The PCEHR That Provoked This Email Some Five Days Later?
Subject: PCEHR Intermittent Errors in Document Uploads from Providers [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]
The PCEHR System Operator advises there was a system issue impacting on the upload of some documents by Healthcare Providers between Thursday 29th October 2015 and 1st November 2015. During this time, an error would have been returned to the local clinical information system advising that the document had failed to upload successfully. The issue has since been resolved and no further errors have been reported following the implementation of a fix on the 1st November 2015.
The System Operator will contact impacted provider organisations to advise them of the documents that failed to upload successfully during this period.
The PCEHR System Operator apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We can only hope there were not too many clinicians frustrated as they tried to upload all those Shared Health Summaries!
