The State Government, the Health Department, Royal Prince Hamlet Hospital and the Central Sydney Area Health Service (CSAHS) are the four major stake holders involved in the process. The descriptions of their roles are listed as follows:
The State Government: It plans to start a new Patient’s Administration System for the easy access of health information’s about the patients. This gives a computerized data about the patients to the correspondent hospitals.
The Health Department: It operates a Central IT Policy Group (ITPG) to instruct all the regional centres about the infrastructure and service setups. The Health Department also runs a Central Program Office which is used to collect and store the entire data from various regional centres. There were almost 8 regions, where 5 regions located in metropolitan cities and other 3 regions are located in non-metropolitan cities. The state government is funding all the eight regional centres(Wexler, B, 2011).
Royal Prince Hamlet Hospital: The first chosen hospital management is RPH. It has been taken for a testing purpose where this is one of the largest hospital. From the study of RPH pilot it has been declared that the division of regions should be taken in a proper way and all the data processed in various regions should be linked with the central region system.
The Central Sydney Area Health Service: It is one of the large hospitals in the region of Sydney. It has almost 8 hospitals in the inner part of the Sydney. The test run is organized using this service centre and it was successfully completed. Hence the Government planned PAS system to be executed in various regions at a same time.
