CXIOs to deliver digital-health ‘X factor’

9 October 2019

A group of clinician-informatician leaders from across NSW Health is banding together to advocate for the digital-health needs of clinicians, patients, consumers and carers across the state.

Led by eHealth NSW, the Clinical Information Officer Executive Leadership Group (CXIO ELG) unites senior clinical leaders from NSW Health organisations across the state to influence the ongoing digital transformation of our public health system.

Reporting to the eHealth Executive Council, the group is responsible for providing strategic clinical advice and appropriate decision-making in support of the eHealth Strategy for NSW Health: 2016-2026.

“This is a team of highly skilled health informaticians and leaders in medicine, nursing, midwifery, pharmacy and allied health,” said Dr Mark Simpson, Chief Clinical Information Officer, eHealth NSW.

“As well as advocating for digital health needs and requirements of clinicians, patients, consumers and carers at a state level, they will also have clinical ownership of and accountability for providing advice and recommendations on the design of solutions focusing on clinical need.

“Most importantly, the CXIOs’ work will help to ensure that our digital solutions are not only adopted and used, but also fit for purpose, robust, intuitive, stable and safe.”

The inaugural meeting of the CXIO ELG will take place in October, and planning is underway for the first annual joint symposium between CXIOs and Chief Information Officers in early 2020.
