The adoption of electronic health records has been significantly slower in Australia than many European countries. This paper compares the implementation process in Australia with Slovenia, looking at the benefits, drawbacks and success factors of e-health implementation. The authors use case studies collected in each country to discuss issues around e-health implementation. Though Slovenia has progressed much further down the road of e-health the commonality of the experiences between both cases was striking.
