Here are a few questions for them to answer to get things underway….
1. What is the current situation of the National E-Health Strategy and what are its recommendations? Does it support the Government's plan for the PCEHR?

2. What planning documents exist for the planned changes to the PCEHR -> MyHealthRecord,  how were they consulted on and developed and when will they be made public for comment?

3. What is the evidence base for continuing with the PCEHR and when will it be made public?

4. What is the Business Case for the planned spend on the PCEHR and when will this be made public?

5. What is the scope, nature, duration and size of the planned trials of 'opt-out' and what will be the criteria applied to determine success or failure?

6. When will the Privacy Impact Study for the planned trials be made available for public review and consideration?

7. What are the planned upgrades for the PCEHR System to make it usable, safe and clinically relevant?

8. What will be the composition, role, membership, accountability and functions of the new e-Health Commission?

That should cover it openers?
