Electronic Health Records – “It’s a job we have to get on with”

A former boss used to sometimes joke that we “shouldn’t let the facts get in the way of a good argument” when our management team was in the midst of a particularly heated debate. This sentiment came to mind yesterday after I read the AG’s report and compared my impressions with what I was reading in the mainstream media. Later in the day, I came across the following article which offered some insights from the AG not reported in the mainstream media:

In the article, the AG is quoted as saying “A lot of the money was well-spent.” He also stated that he believes that the eHealth program is “salvageable” with with “improved strategic planning, time frames for deliverables, and tighter oversight”. Most encouraging, perhaps, is his comment that “I think we need to develop electronic health records. It’s a job we have to get on with.”
