Government wants audit to be thorough, but “very large scale”
Dr David Ewins says “very large scale” need to be identified
The Commonwealth has made the $1.3 billion health information system for all Australians available for the first time, but the government says the system is only 우리카지노intended to be run for a short time.
In a report released on Wednesday, Auditor General David Ewins said that while the program is technically possible, a very large scale audit was needed and that it could take several years to complete.

“If they need to check someone’s blood pressure, that’s easy for them, but if they need to do an MRI, that’s something you need to wait a very long time to do, and it doesn’t have a standaapronxrd view available to people in Australia for easy access,” Dr Scott said.
The study also found there was a need for more training for Australians about this information, and that many Australian residents had never heard of this data, and could often not relate to it.
It said there was a general belief that access to and processing of the data could be achieved with a simple computer, and even if thi
