Delay to NCSR roll-out also delays payments to Telstra Health

Telstra Health has been paid less than $11 million of its $200 million+ contract with the federal government to build the National Cancer Screening Register (NCSR) because the company has missed several milestones, according to Department of Health officials.

The register, which was originally due to go live for bowel cancer screening in March 2017 and for cervical cancer screening in May 2017, is still not complete, with three of the eight states and territories including Victoria yet to fully migrate data from their existing cervical cancer screening registers to the national system.
