Computer glitch stymies NEHTA trial

NEHTA said it was "pausing" development of its primary care desktop software being tested at the Metro North Brisbane, Inner East Melbourne and Hunter Urban Medicare Locals.

The glitch would also affect other e-health sites, including those of Greater Western Sydney, St Vincent’s and Mater Health Sydney, Calvary Health Care ACT, Cradle Coast Electronic Health Information Exchange in Tasmania, the NT Health Department and Brisbane's Mater Misericordiae Health Services, NEHTA said in a statement.

The Medibank and Defence trials were unaffected.
