Paul Madden, Chief Information and Knowledge Officer at the Department of Health revealed at the Community Affairs Legislation Committee that 155 public hospitals are now using the new Electronic Health system. At the previous Estimates hearing, only 56 hospitals were using the system. According to Madden, all jurisdictions except the Northern Territory and Victoria anticipate to have their hospitals fully connected by the end of March 2014. The system is part of the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCHR) solution. At present, between 3,000 and 4,000 people are registering with the PCEHR each day according to the Secretary of the Department of Health Professor Jane Halton.
