AusHealthIT Poll Number 391 – Results – 30th July, 2017.

Here are the results of the poll.

Do You Believe The ADHA Is Improving Or Deteriorating As Time Passes With Its Delivery, Openness and Transparency?

Getting Better 1% (2)

About The Same 14% (20)

Getting Worse 83% (120)

I Have No Idea 2% (3)

Total votes: 145

The numbers speak for themselves. People seem to think things are not really improving .

A really great turnout of votes!

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

Itbwill be difficult to recover under the current leadership team, we have seen the pattern of communication, it is all about statistics and claims of some future utopia and little substance. All the ADHA has is the MyHR which is simply statistics of uploads of documents. They had a chance to lead but has missed that opportunity and instead seemed to have decided the community even more.

I am guessing our national entity on eHealth will drift about for a while then fizzle out, our the MyHR will create the expected catastrophe much like care.data did. The positive to that is although care.data damaged the NHS trust and brand, they are recovering and have managed to move forward in a new direction.

Agree, the ADHA has little to say, and probably a lot they would prefer not to talk about. That is no excuse and the ADHA going by the rules of its incorporation was never created to be a national soapbox for egos and twitter.

David, this weeks poll is a serious issue, the ADHA Board will not be able to dismiss it as simply noise from a long standing blogger, your poll results are the same as Pulse IT, so one would have to wonder if this is a cultural and change management issue for them. That our the Board is sponsoring the secrecy

I wonder if it really matters, after all what is the ADHA? Why does it even exist? What positive impact is it having that could not happen without it? Is the ADHA serving an open and competitive market? Or is it simply now competing with the market and constraining innovation through the mandated MyHR, swollowing up funds that could be used to drive the complete lifecycle of standards and nurture those emergent properties underpinning natural interoperability?

The MyHR comes up in conversations and development consideration, or at least CDA does which inevitably means the MyHR is mentioned, as for the ADHA and its leader, well not really, if I did not read your blog David I probably would not know what it was.

I have to agree with 12:05 PM, it does seem the ADHA has fizzled out and lack any vision. I like others were expecting to be able to get round complex issues where the ADHA would bring to bear real subject matter experts from computer science, health informatics, healthcare, standards and industry and consumers, not a set of generic managers, spin doctors and armies of change managers stuck in simple domain techniques and a stubborn belief in six sigma for health.

I really don't know why people are expecting change. The same old department of Health - a policy department - is trying to achieve service delivery outcomes. They don't have the knowledge and/or expertise to do this but don't understand their own limitations. The culture in the department hasn't changed in the twenty five years since I first had any involvement - which has only been occasional, but informative.
