International EMR, EHR — Insider’s Perspective on NeHTA

A recent reader recently commented on my earlier post, Government Sponsored E-health Initiatives, and brought my attention to his blog, Australian Health Information Technology, which focuses on the Australian government’s EMR initiative NeHTA.

David More MB, PhD, FACHI, describes himself as a ‘dissident’ who is a bit worried about this organisation.  Have to say that he sounds like a fun guy (and certainly very interesting guy) already.  You may want to poke around his site to get more information about NeHTA in general.  He posts interesting tid-bits such as noting the number of weeks late that NeHTA is in delivering their plans for what sounds like stage I of their version of the US Meaningful Use plan.  Dr. More also cites breaking news articles regarding government EHR plans from both Australia and the US.  Bon apetite!
