This blog is totally independent, unpaid and has only three major objectives.
The first is to inform readers of news and happenings in the e-Health domain, both here in Australia and world-wide.
The second is to provide commentary on e-Health in Australia and to foster improvement where I can.
The third is to encourage discussion of the matters raised in the blog so hopefully readers can get a balanced view of what is really happening and what successes are being achieved.

Can Someone Explain Just What This Document Is For And How Is It To Be Actioned?
This appeared last week from NEHTA.
eMedications Management Functional Framework v1.0 March 2015 Release
Created on Monday, 02 March 2015
The eMedications Management (eMM) Functional Framework outlines the key capabilities within medications management business systems.
It can be used to identify opportunities and gaps in medications management process automation, system integration, information quality and terminology standardisation.
This is the first official release following its conception as part of the Jurisdictional eMedications Management (eMM) Collaborations initiative.
We are pleased to announce that the eMedications Management Functional Framework v1.0 is now available for download from the following location on the NEHTA website:
The scope of the eMedications Management Functional Framework covers a range of capabilities from medications reconciliation to dispensing, including supporting functions such as supply chain, and dependent functions such as reporting and monitoring.
Significant refinements since the last eMM workshop updates have been documented within the release note for the benefits of those participants. Other stakeholders will also gain an understanding of its evolution and ongoing maintenance by reviewing the latest updates. Download the release note as follows:
As far as I can tell all we have here are a list of functions (and some definitions in an Excel Sheet). The desired functions have been largely unchanged for the last 15 years. Just exactly what is added here and just why are we paying for this and similar documents?
