Here Is The Only Digital Health Initiative I Could Spot In The MYEFO. Consultants Relieved!

Looks like a little more for the consultants.

From the MYEFO Papers - Health Section p165:

These are found here:

Digital Mental Health Gateway — development of a second pass business case

Expense ($m) 2016-17 Department of Health  $2.5m
The Government will provide $2.5 million in 2016-17 for a second pass business case to continue the development of a Digital Mental Health Gateway to improve community access to mental health services. The Gateway will enable users to access evidence-based information and advice and mental health treatment options.
----- End Extract.
I wonder why it is the public keeps paying for these documents but never has a chance to review them and test out their credibility.
Pity about that.
On a broader level there appears to be close to $50M over four years to help seniors develop and use digital technology. Enough - who knows?
