Tanya Plibersek MP Minister for Health Visits eHealth Truck

The Hon Tanya Plibersek MP, Minister for Health, saw eHealth in action when she visited the recently launched Model Healthcare Community (MHC) truck.

At the 'Health-e-Nation' Conference on 28 March 2012, the Minister received a briefing and tour from NEHTA's National Clinical Lead Dr Mukesh Haikerwal. The eHealth Truck will tour Australia showcasing the NEHTA eHealth foundations, clinical documents and the personally controlled electronic health record.

"The ultimate improvement in the health of the nation will be tangibly enhanced and supported by eHealth and the personally controlled electronic health record," said Dr Haikerwal.

NEHTA's MHC has gone on the road to give health professionals a close up view of the way eHealth will work in their practices, and give patients an insight into what eHealth will deliver in the future.
