Mr R.H. COOK: […] Fiona Stanley Hospital is supposed to be a paperless office—a hospital of the future. Indeed, robots are supposed to be running around the corridors of Fiona Stanley Hospital; not much is heard about robots nowadays. I think the hospital would be happy if it could just get an email to travel from the administration to a ward.

Ms R. Saffioti: Perhaps the robots can carry the letters around.

Mr R.H. COOK: Such is the way ICT is going in that hospital at the moment, pigeons will be waddling down the corridors with medical records tied to them.

Ms R. Saffioti: But they will be very smart pigeons.
