I am hearing, from multiple sources, there are ructions emerging between those who are meant to be delivering the software for the DoHA Secure Messaging PIP program and NEHTA.
The differences seem to centre around some pretty fundamental technical issues and approaches. Specifically whether one secure messaging environment should be used for all secure messages versus different approaches for different message domains.
FWIW I reckon one should be enough! Feels like another example of NEHTA making things harder than they need to be.
How these differences are resolved will show just how consultative the “new” NEHTA has become!
