Just So You Know - A Rumour About Extra NEHTA Funding

I have now heard from two sources there is to be $400M given to NEHTA as part of the selling the Roxon / Rudd Health Reform Plan to the Council of Australian Governments.

It could all be the most made up bit of nonsense ever, but if true one really hopes this time there will be some clear conditions on just how the funds are spent, on what and what is delivered for the funds.

Rumours of extra funding for e-Health certainly must have some basis, given that this area is to be subject of an additional announcement at some point - according to the initial plan that was released a week or two ago.

We shall all see - but if true, you heard it here first. Anonymous tips welcome!
