Report No. 63 - Queensland Health - eHealth Program - Auditor General's Report to Parliament No. 4 for 2012-2013


The Health and Community Services Committee is monitoring Queensland Health’s implementation of the Auditor-General’s recommendations in the report Queensland Health – eHealth Program and report to the Legislative Assembly. The Auditor-General’s report was tabled on 27 November 2012 and was referred to the committee for consideration on 13 February 2013. 

The report examined implementation of the eHealth Program and whether planned outcomes and expected benefits were being achieved. The eHealth Program consists of multiple projects to expand and develop clinical and administrative systems, and implement an integrated electronic medical record (ieMR) system at selected hospitals. The eHealth Program was divided into two tranches, to be implemented over four years, ending in 2012. 

The eHealth Program was not being implemented in agreed timeframes. Performance measurement arrangements, particularly the collection of baseline data, was not undertaken consistently. There were difficulties measuring and reporting on outcomes and benefits and the Auditor-General recommended review of management and reporting of the eHealth Program.


The committee held a public hearing on E-health implementation progress on 7 August 2013 at Parliament House in Brisbane.


On 19 December 2014, the Committee tabled its Report No. 63, Queensland Health - eHealth Program - Auditor General's Report to Parliament No.4 for 2012-2013. The report and related documents can be accessed under the 'Related Publications' tab.
