Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records

(Question No. 723)


Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Health and Ageing, in writing, on 3 November 2011:

Does she know the estimated value of the infrastructure/hardware that the Commonwealth will own as at 1 July 2012 in respect of the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record project; if so, can she provide it.


Ms Roxon: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

It is estimated that the total value of assets that the Commonwealth will have invested will be between $70 - 100 million. The Commonwealth will own these assets. Other aspects of the Program have been invested in the Lead Implementation Sites, change and adoption and the establishment of standards and specifications.
