Pam Brady

Greetings to all PHS staff and customers, from your new editor, Pam Brady! If you don‟t recognise me, it may be because I am a relatively new starter since February 2010. We thank our outgoing Editor, Lucas Jones, for his work over the last 2 years. 

This year, PHS has gone through a fairly big growth spurt, and the office is bursting at the seams with new recruits. 

We welcome James Andrews, Adam Willett, Shaun Reid, and Jessica Wang into the PBRC-AE team, George Mitev into the PBRC-IE team, Simon Harding and Akber Ali into the Reporting team, Suhasini Arumugam into the Testing team and myself (Pam Brady) into the Technical Writing team. 

I look forward to introducing these new faces to you in future newsletters. 

So much has happened since the last newsletter ─ the COAG healthcare funding agreement, our first female Australian Prime Minister, the federal election, autumn, winter, the arrival of spring, the latest batch of PHS babies (Frank‟s, Phil‟s, Simon‟s), … 

We have all been hard at work developing and implementing PHS products both in Australia as well as overseas. PPM has undergone a full rewrite, metamorphising into a version 10. That is our excuse for only now catching up on last year‟s Christmas dinner! 

We are planning the next PHS conference, after taking a break in 2009. 2010 happened so fast we are trying to schedule a conference this financial year. We‟ll keep you posted as the plan unfolds. 

I look forward to bringing you interesting PowerHealth news, both of the serious as well as the silly and fun variety!
