Health check

Queensland Health is confident that it's new payroll system - introduced a year ago and plagued with problems - is now "under control". When the system first went "live" - without the benefit of running in tandem with the old system for even one pay run - thousands of nurses and hospital workers were underpaid, overpaid or just not paid at all. The good news is, now that the system's "under control" only 31 staff members reported they had not been paid in the last pay cycle. Hmmm ... this could mean to some that the system still doesn't have its clean bill of health! And could it really be true that the problems with the system have pushed the price of implementing it from $60 million to $210 million?
