Qld Health buries TrakHealth suit

Queensland Health has settled its long-running lawsuit with e-health vendor TrakHealth and its parent InterSystems.

in brief Queensland Health has settled its long-running lawsuit with e-health vendor TrakHealth and its parent InterSystems.

TrakHealth dragged Queensland Health into the state's Supreme Court in December 2005 after the department terminated a contract with the vendor for the implementation of the department's Clinical Information System project and related software. The e-health vendor claimed it was owed damages.

However, Queensland filed a counter-claim against the e-health vendor as well as InterSystems and its CEO Terry Ragon.

"The parties have now agreed [to] a settlement which resolves all matters in issue between them, including all claims and counter-claims in the proceedings, to their mutual satisfaction," a statement issued by TrakHealth this morning said without providing further details.
