This Is A Very Interesting Table And Must Reflect The High Government Expectations For The ADHA.

A very kind soul who is well known to readers of this blog (Karen Dearne) sent me this a day or so ago:

There are a further 5 or so pages you can browse if you wish.
Interestingly this determination is actually date April 4, 2016. This suggests the salary was decided before serious recruitment efforts began.
The table provided much better disclosure than what was seen last year from NEHTA where their paid directors and executives collected a total of $ 3,696,477.
(There were 2 independent directors and then the executives – eight or so). Clearly they were also pretty well paid.
What one has to take from this – and the comparative level the remuneration that has been set – it that the Government is clearly expecting big and successful things from the ADHA.
This really means those of us who are concerned about the strategic direction need to make sure the CEO and his staff are across the details of our concerns and are responding sensibly. The ADHA is our last best hope to have e-Health actually deliver.
The next 12 months will be crucial.
David.
