IBM was awarded a contract to extend their services in support of the Australian health care system. The $70 million (Australian) effort will provide internet transactions in support of all aspects of the system by connecting doctors, patients, hospitals and pharmacies. IBM provides the mainframe and support services necessary for the system to process the transactions. This is yet another illustration that IT support and services are a big part of all government and defense spending.
