HIC and HDA 2017 Reprise - join us in Brisbane on the 23rd of November!

Dr Louise Schaper

Message from the CEO
The clinical informatics community responded strongly to our recent “temperature check” survey giving us valuable information to guide planning over the next year. Not surprisingly, clinical governance around implementing system change emerged as a key priority. It was also interesting to see when it comes to the “CXIO” in health organisations, the title of Chief Medical Information Officer is used most. Digital workforce capacity building will only succeed with the right leadership and the new world of the CXIO is the next step. Look out for our draft white paper on clinical informatics being released soon for broad consultation among members and the wider digital health community. If you are working in the field, have a leadership focus today or in the future we would like to hear from you. Read more on the recent survey and find our infographic. for sharing with your networks

Are they only hearing the noise?
e-Patient Dave asked us to distribute his latest blog post to the recent Sydney breakfast attendees, and those delegates who heard him speak at the Health Data Analytics 2017 conference in Brisbane. We think it will be appreciated by all members. :-]

He said: “During Q&A someone asked about health literacy, and my latest blog post on the subject directly addresses both the "signal-to-noise" ratio of unclear communications and the cultural problem of thinking "What is wrong with the person who can't receive my message??" Ultimately, I hope this post itself makes its OWN message on the subject clearer.
