NEHTA has published a blueprint for its forthcoming program of work. I’m not sure why they have labelled this a “blueprint”, rather than a plan. Possibly they have borrowed from Infoway, who have been publishing blueprints for many years, starting back in 2003.
My view is that such a “blueprint” is long overdue, but this lacks sufficient implementation detail to be called a blueprint. From the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, we have:
blueprint (for something):
a plan which shows what can be achieved and how it can be achieved
[e.g.] a blueprint for the privatization of health care
I hope to be able to contribute to a genuine and useful “blueprint” for e-health in Australia in the coming months.
