An informant has just let me know the NEHTA web site has had a major facelift.
Go to www.nehta.gov.au to experience the new site.
We also seem to have another new Director – here is what the site tells us.
Dr Peter Flett
Dr Peter Flett graduated in medicine in Adelaide, South Australia. After four years in the Royal Australian Air Force he undertook specialist chemical pathology training in Melbourne. He moved to Perth where he worked for 20 years in the private sector of pathology with a consultancy to the King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women. His current roles are Chief Executive of PathWest (the public pathology arm of the Department of Health of WA) and Area Chief Executive of the South Metropolitan Area Health Service, which oversees two major tertiary hospitals and several secondary hospitals.
Welcome and good luck Peter!
This means we now have 2 of 10 directors with a clinical background. My view is that that is still at least 2-3 too few!
The other distinct lack is that there is not a single Health IT expert on the Board – just how can that be justified?
Happy New Year to all!
