AusHealthIT Poll Number 410 – Results – 18th February, 2018.

Here are the results of the poll.

How Would You Rate The Value For Money Being Delivered By The ADHA To The Australian Community?

Excellent 0% (0)
OK 1% (1)

Neutral 1% (2)

Not Much 52% (78)

Non-Existent 45% (67)

I Have No Idea 1% (2)

Total Votes 150

This is a definitive poll with readers seeing the ADHA as adding very little to no value so far. I wonder what the Board would make of this result?

Any insights welcome as a comment, as usual. For those who are counting there have now been 14,800 comments on the blog . (There a total of 5100 posts).

A really, great turnout of votes!

It must have been an easy question with just 2 not sure what the appropriate answer was.

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

I assume "Value For Money" means atleast $1 benefit for every $1 spent. At the moment there is no published research that shows the benefit exceeds the cost. The limited number of published case studies and opinions would indicate a very small benefit compared to the costs (in the order of 1:10000 benefits:costs). WAMTC and other uses of the BEACH data for government in the past returned closer to 100:1 benefits:costs but was then unsupported.
The wild claims of benefits of the MyHR by consultants have not materialised into reality.
