AusHealthIT Poll Number 374 – Results – 11th June, 2017.

Here are the results of the poll.

Should Not The Development Of A National Digital Health Interoperability Strategy Be Within The ADHA Skills Sets Internally And Not Need To Be Outsourced?

Yes 98% (204)

No 1% (3)

I Have No Idea 0% (1)

Total votes: 208

The numbers speak for themselves. Almost no one, that reads here, thinks the ADHA should be lacking deep skills in interoperability. Pretty sad I reckon they seem to have this gap.

A really great turnout of votes!

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

Looks like a knee jerk reaction to a situation or their own making to tackle a problem they are unable to comprehend or articulate. Is this a sign the ADHA is crumbling? Perhaps they are not fit-for-purpose to lead the nation?

Perhaps they are just a call centre for NIO and a online news site, and ATM machine?

I hear the National Strategy has already gone to print and AHMAC, anyone know where it can be accessed? I am sure it was to be openly and transparency made public ally available, after all we paid for it and many provided input.

At least some behind this read your blog. As for the ADHS yes I believe it was to be made available, my guess is it will not so that messaging to COAG and the minister can be controlled unpolluted by concerned citizens enquiries. I doubt the public will see the same material anyway.

Why is there an obvious lack of experience and depth of knowledge in interoperability? I think most would agree it is a complex issue and one that as a community we need to openly discuss and shape to the relative benefits of all parties? The ADHA had some very keen minds in this space and relationships with thought leaders and doers in this space, what happened?

This is very concerning. I hope the culture of dismissing knowledgable inderviduals as to hard and bullying inderviduals is not become rife again.

June 11, 2017 1:14 PM. The situation is far more worrying than you could imagine, even for a relatively new entrant I find parts of the Agency extremely odd. The Agency seems to be going through some sort of cultural revolution, resulting in the usual groups of people being put down and little nasty people stoking the fires beneath the stakes. I hear that this is not helped by some externals seemingly out to settle old scores or entrench their position.

It is a bit sad and very eye opening that this should accurately in such and organisation, I am yet to discover the Agency described at my interview.

In regards to the RFT goal (taking a liberal interpretation) I put forward the proposition that of all stakeholders, only the policy makers have a clear and strong interest in the promotion of interoperability. Therefore in this case they are the most important stakeholder as it is up to them to ensure rebuts cross vendor technical interoperability is a stay-in-business issue. I might also for fun propose they also have a vested interest in clinical interoperability and business interoperability.

What I don't see is where interoperability should be prioritised. What I sense in this RFT is an untow of ‘let's just have a single standard that everyone must conform to or get out of the way, conform or else.

PS: The Medal reference, yes nice subtle dig, forgot about that shameless spineless incident, Apple never falls far from the labor tree
