The hot top 20: most-read stories on Pulse+IT in 2021
Pulse+IT publisher Simon James’ story on NSW Health’s “broken” vaccination booking system was the most popular article for the year by a country mile. Six of the top 20 most-read stories were about the various booking systems rolled out, including HealthEngine winning the contract for a national solution, ACT Health’s MyDHR solution and its feat in going live with its Epic EMR for phase 1 vaccinations were also of interest.
Telstra Health’s acquisitions of MedicalDirector and PowerHealth Solutions, its new health exchange from TELUS and its Kyra platform all made the top 20, as did our interview with Dedalus Asia Pacific managing director Darryl Goodall about its post-DXC strategy.
The restructure of Cerner’s executive team in Australia – with a new MD appointed and three long-serving general managers departing – raised a lot of eyebrows. Other personnel-based stories include several Australian Digital Health Agency executives jump ship to Healthdirect Australia, as well as the appointment of Mal Thatcher as ADHA CTO.
The remarkable results being realised with Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital EMR, COVID-19 digital certificates, NSW Health’s single digital patient record and Sydney LHD’s SMART Health cards rounded out the year.
