Australian e-health report card disappointing

We have commented before about the difficulty in understanding what, if anything, is happening about the various Federal and state initiatives on electronic health records.

I don't know Dr. David More, but his blog on e-health confirms that the report card for what has been achieved in 2006 is pretty ordinary and likely to be a disappointment for Federal Health Minister Tony Abbot who, in September 2005 said that he would do everything he could to deliver benefits from the $128million national electronic medical health records program within 12 months.

It's big business in the US, but cost and privacy concerns remain. Thanks to PogoWasRight for these two leads.
