It is good to see there has now been some reaction to the release of the Deloittes National E- Health Strategy.

I have found the following so far:

Health records fail the IT test

Tuesday, 16 December 2008 | Ben Woodhead

Article here (expensive subscription required):

http://www.afr.com/applications/Stock_mxml.html?pid=A&one=EDP://20081216000030649416

All three articles were pretty negative on what had gone on to date and did not seem all that positive about the future – to say the least.

Most also seemed to suggest that while the plan was sound without funding and political commitment there would be a long wait!

Let me know if you spot other coverage.
