Message from the CEO
Digital health is the future of healthcare and leadership in clinical informatics is imperative if we are to get digital health right. The right clinical leadership helps us make decisions about technology design and implementation and drives real change in clinical practice. This leadership capability needs to be recognised by organisations embarking on their digital transformations and professional colleges who hold their registered healthcare professionals accountable for their conduct and practice. Leadership skills in clinical informatics must be developed so that the clinical and IT worlds mesh effectively to bring value to healthcare delivery and patient experience. The Clinical Informatics Network, a community of practice within the Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA), has developed a draft White Paper “Leadership in Clinical Informatics” to raise awareness and acknowledge the important role of clinicians in leading digital transformation in health. The draft is available now for a period of public consultation. We greatly value your input! Please take time to share your view with us.
