The Progressive Conservatives are raising new concerns about overspending at eHealth Ontario.

The Liberals made major changes at eHealth after the auditor general found $1 billion had been spent with little to show for it, while well-paid consultants nickled and dimed the agency for expenses.

Conservative MPP Rick Nichols said Monday eHealth has now spent $2.5 billion, but still hasn't hit its targets for creating electronic medical records or a drug information system.

Nichols says "cronyism" and "scandalous" overspending are still problems at eHealth, an agency he calls a "complete and utter joke."

The Tories claim consultants who abused eHealth expense accounts are now with another firm that is poised to get $70 million in contracts from the agency.

Health Minister Deb Matthews calls those "very serious allegations," and says eHealth is a vital component of the health-care system and will eventually save taxpayers money.

Former health minister David Caplan was forced to resign in 2009 over expense abuses by outside consultants hired by eHealth.
