Message from the CEO
We have been overwhelmed by the response to last week’s launch of the new CXIO Network, supported by HISA, the Australian Digital Health Agency and the Australasian College of Health Informatics (ACHI). Many clinicians from around Australia quickly put their hand up to be included. Membership is open to clinical leaders who share a passion for furthering the adoption of digital technologies to deliver better healthcare. An Expression of Interest form is available for clinical leaders who are CCIO, CMIO, CNIO and CPIOs with their healthcare organisations as well as clinical informaticians, emerging clinical leaders and digital “champions” who are in a recognised health profession. If this is your call to action, join the CXIO movement now!

PS: Don’t forget to complete the HI workforce census which closes May 31!
