Massive scope of health and aged care payments systems revealed in RFI

The huge scope and complexity of the health and aged care payments IT systems that the government says are in need of replacement have been revealed in a request for information (RFI) issued yesterday, describing the first of two stages in a mammoth project that aims to have some elements up and running in less than two years.

The new Digital Payments Platform will cover Medicare, aged care and veterans payments covering 600 million transactions worth approximately $50 billion a year, including $21.4b for the MBS, $10.9b for the PBS and $13.2b for aged care.

It's a highly optimistic (unrealistic) timescale for such a major project!
