Warning for Queensland Health on HBCIS as ERP system goes over budget

Queensland Health has been encouraged to redesign its project governance frameworks to ensure accountability for project delivery following a budget overrun and several glitches with its new enterprise resource planning system for finance and supply chain management.

Queensland Auditor-General Brendan Worrall said project governance would be an important consideration when Queensland Health restarted the replacement project for its $210 million HBCIS patient administration system, a tender for which was terminated in January 2019 over conflict of interest allegations.

Not a great track record of major project governance in Queensland on the back of the previous QH Payroll debacle. The consistent theme in Queensland, South Australia (ePAS) and Victoria (HealthSmart) is that State-wide systems are high risk due to lack of clear governance. NSW Health (after several false starts) seems to have succeeded in the roll-out of the eMeds Project along with the (not Statewide) Parkville sites in Victoria with EPIC on the back of the previous Royal Children's Hospital implementation => Governance Model has to match the Delivery Model.
