RACGP presidential candidates have their say on eHealth

Voting for a new president for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners has been underway since June 16 and is due to close this Friday.

Five GPs have put their names forward for the two-year position, which will commence in October when current president Liz Marles finishes her term.

Statements from the five candidates – Danny Byrne, Frank Jones, Harry Nespolon, Sam Heard and Evan Ackermann – are available on the RACGP website. Most mention eHealth as an area they would like to focus on.

Pulse+IT thought we'd dig a little deeper into what each candidate thinks about the role of eHealth, NEHTA and the PCEHR, how they see health IT assisting in the delivery of care in general practice, and what areas they'd like to see improved upon.

Four candidates returned answers by deadline, so to see each candidate's responses, click on their names:
