AusHealthIT Poll Number 239 – Results – 12th October, 2014.

Here are the results of the poll.

Have DoH And NEHTA Contributed To The Progressive Degradation Of Australian E-Health Standards Setting Processes?

Yes 91% (218)

Probably 1% (3)

Neutral 0% (1)

Probably Not 0% (1)

No 6% (15)

I Have No Idea 1% (2)

Total votes: 240

This is a pretty clear and enthusiastic outcome. Most are sick of Government interference in the Standards setting process and believe they have not helped.

Again, many, many thanks to all those that voted!

No they have not helped, the IT14 situation you could argue had underlying structural issues, however the is a couple of people who soley are to blame for the disaster the unfolded post 2010 and the have not been confined to the standards setting, now we start seeing interoperability hitting the headlines I fear the same ignorance of standards will have been the same for interoperability in Australia, years of saying it is to hard and look over here I have a widget for that, we can hack some code for that, well crappy foresight and crappy leadership is not scalable as we are now paying the price for. Daffy Duck please leave and take Donald Duck with you

Not sure about the references to a duck dressed in black or The duck that flaps and yaps in a seemling irratic and pointless manner, however if it is who I think (based on past experince) it will not be long before Daffy appears on the horizon to save the day, all previously planned to look a hero by slowly posioning the well. If my hunch is correct then we have seen nothing yet.
