Computer system glitch puts thousands of NT patients at risk
- The Australian
This is really an interesting story and shows the risks of not having a specific provider recording information for a patient and then the same provider using that information - rather than pretending information sourced from unknown others can be trusted to be true - or even to be there!
The healthcare provider has a strong interest in the accuracy and completeness of their records for their patients. The further you move from that situation the higher the potential risk of inaccuracy and incompleteness.
