Major technology issues at Queensland children's hospital

There is a risk the opening of a Queensland children's hospital could be delayed if major information and communication technology (ICT) glitches are not fixed in time.

Brisbane's Lady Cilento Children's Hospital is due to open in three weeks, however documents obtained by the ABC under right to information show three major issues with the building's $90 million dollar ICT systems.

There was a high risk that all cardiac technology would not be ready for opening on November 29, which would have major consequences.

A high level of integration across multiple vendors and providers may delay delivery of ICT, and if any issue emerged, there would not be enough time to fix it before the hospital opened.

However, Queensland Health Director General Ian Maynard said they were on track to open on time.

"I'm assured that we have processes in place and mitigation steps to address all of the risks that are considered to be high risks," he said.

"Our number one consideration is the safety of our patients and we would not be opening a new hospital if the safety of patient safety was put at risk."

"If it required urgent cardiac surgery there's a contingency in place to be able to work with the Mater to have that surgery undertaken."

Children's Health Queensland chief executive Peter Steer it was very unlikely that the risks would eventuate.

"We're very confident that there's nothing in the ICT framework that in any way would jeopardise a safe patient move on the 29th."
