Health confident remaining NCSR functions on track

The Department of Health says it is confident the remaining elements for the full roll-out of the National Cancer Screening Register (NCSR) are on track for completion in the next month or two despite hopes it would be ready last month.

The department has also yet to set a date for the start of the new electronic bowel screening program, which was supposed to start in March 2017, telling a joint public accounts and audit committee hearing in Canberra yesterday that the bowel cancer plan will recommence when it has fully delivered the register services, being built by Telstra Health

Classic weasel words - they had 'necessary elements' in place but most of the state isn't sending results and the mechanism to send back patient histories to pathology labs (critical to the whole process) hasn't started yet. Clinical questions about content and process are glossed over and rarely adequately answered. Shambles.

How many more deadlines for functionality will be allowed? The promise from TH was cervix and bowel screening functionality by 1st May 2017. I understand that the second has not even commenced?
