Queensland Health e-health infrastructure

Public health services in Queensland, including public hospitals, are provided through 16 Health and Hospital Services (HHSs), each of which operates as a statutory body with a governing Hospital and Health Board (HHB).

Queensland Health released an e-health Investment Strategy in August 2015, outlining an e-health investment strategy costing $1260,000,000. The following table from that Strategy illustrates where each of the Health & Hospital Services expects to be with their e-health capability if and when the $1260,000,000 is spent.
