Library & Knowledge Centre (LKC) provides advice to health units regarding the purchasing of resources, eg books, manuals, DVDs, journals, etc.

eHealth Queensland and CHHHS ICT have advised that any resources that require the installation of software on networked PCs should be purchased through them.

CHHHS health units seeking to purchase software, where installation is required on PCs with specific administrative rights, should:

  • log a job with eHealth Qld Online IT Support
  • in the request, make a note to refer through to the CHHHS ICT for approval

All software purchasing should go through eHealth Qld and CHHHS ICT for a number of reasons

  1. eHealth / CHHHS ICT keeps track of non-SOE (standard operating environment) software installations and they assess compatibility with systems
  2. installation of software requires ICT administrative rights

TCHHS health units should seek advice from their local Information Management department in the first instance.
