So due to a nasty accident about 6 months ago, I’ve been spending a lot of time in offices running ACT Health computer systems – from TCH, to Physio offices in ACT Health Centres.
What I’ve noticed – as recently as today – is that they’re all still running Windows XP. The system that is now end of life, and won’t be updated with security updates any more. The system that is the front door to a whole stack of my medical records. Mine are pretty innocuous really – lots of stuff about broken bones – but I’m sure plenty of other people have far more sensitive information stored on the system.
Does anyone know if there’s a project underway to upgrade these systems? Or is the plan just to fudge the OS version, along with waiting lists?
