AusHealthIT Poll Number 425 – Results – 3rd June, 2018.

Here are the results of the poll.

Do You Believe The ADHA Will Actually Spend $100 Million (As Claimed By Tim Kelsey) To Alert People To The myHR Opt-Out Period etc?

Yes 74% (107)

No 23% (33)

I Have No Idea 3% (4)

Total votes: 144

All I can say you are a trusting lot. My reading is that $100M is a bit of a fudge but there you go!

From one report:

“The Agency has committed over $114m to consumer communication activities including:

o $27.75m to support the development, design and delivery of communications collateral and support

o $52.38m has been allocated to support education and training for all registered healthcare providers

o $34m for a consumer call centre that will support public enquiries on My Health Record, and assistance for people choosing to opt out. This also includes an opt out portal that will be activated to allow consumers to exercise their right to opt out.”



Any insights welcome as a comment, as usual.

A really, great turnout of votes!

It must have been slightly hard question as just 4/144 readers were not sure what the appropriate answer was.

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

They will spend it David. Will it be a worthwhile set of investments and deliver the community the right balance of information to enable and informed decision? Will it generate interest around the dinner table and pass the ‘pub test’? In short will we get value for money?

Is ADHA at stage 1 or 2?

Anonymous said...

It would depend on how you view the ADHA. As someone who is employees there rest assured there are 4 and 5. In reality it would be 1 or 3. We have this change management team that seem to be implementing a culture of BS. I think they are attempting Human Synergistics which is by all accounts a reasonable method in the right hands. The issue is that it is lead by two hypocrites and a small cult of friends that no one trusts. We have to attend childish workshops and all day events while trying to deliver against near impossible timelines. All it seems to do is create a layer of falseness. The funny thing is that as a workplace it all seems fine and people work well together. We all seem to share a common amusement of the cultural revolution a couple of out of place change managers attempt to re-educate adults with.

6:20 PM. Fully agree the cultue program they run is a joke, best you do what I did and go work somewhere making a difference and actually treat people with respect. You will be made redundant in a few months anyway.

Perhaps ADOHA might spend some of that $ 100 million testing the website. I also find it quite telling that they have no definition of ‘record’ in the glossary, or if they do it certainly is not appearing. I am not sure what the quality standards are at the NHS but Timmy could certainly improve considerably. If you are struggling with an online news site then I question the ability to manage a national database

They could start with the site map, which starts off with:

"Insert some explanation about the sitemap here."

9:46 AM you did well I cannot find the site map, if I use the search function it tells me to check my spelling of site map. I must admit I am not on a desktop computer.

This is going to be an amusing soft launch. If Tim struggles with basic IT how are we expected to trust them to rollout and manage this work?

Go to the footer, top of the right hand column. They call it sitemap, although the page title is Site map.

There are still signs of pages being published with draft content ie. still under construction and have not been properly checked.

For example the sitemap page has the line
"Insert some explanation about the sitemap here."

That has been a constant with ADHA from the outset. They just seem to lack any discipline or care factor. Good job they are not trusted with safe guarding the government and the departments reputation, let alone the most personal information of Australians
