AusHealthIT Poll Number 33 – Results – 29 August, 2010.

The question was:

Is The Full Investment in the NBN of $43 Billion Critical for e-Health in Australia?

Absolutely - e-Health Needs it All

- 15 (42%)

Possibly - But It is a Lot of Money

- 6 (17%)

I Think e-Health Can Work for A Good Deal Less

- 8 (22%)

About 1/2 the Funds is Enough for E-Health

- 0 (0%)

The $6B from The Opposition Would Do

- 6 (17%)

Votes: 35

This is a interesting outcome. I would have anticipated a little more scepticism about the need to spend $43B on NBN – based on the impact it might have both on e-Health and its other benefits.

There is definitely some uncertainty about the scale of the spend on Broadband needed to enable e-Health.

Again, many thanks to all those who voted!
