The hot top 20: most-read stories on Pulse+IT in 2019

Changes at the top at Queensland Health, the pause in its patient administration system procurement and delays in its electronic medical record roll-out were some of the most popular stories this year, with the saga of the My Health Record falling out of the top 20 entirely.

An update on Royal Children's Hospital's EMR was a good news story for Epic but the Northern Beaches Hospital EMR experience was not so positive for Telstra Health. Tenders for the Australian Defence Force health record and one for ACT Health were of interest, as was a new tool from HealthShare that can convert patient data into clinical notes.

The suspected Ryuk ransomware attack on several Victorian hospitals and a big debate over the security and privacy of the PIP-QI rounded out the year.
