Member profile: David O'Driscoll, CHIA

David O'Driscoll was not only awarded CHIA recognition last year, he sits on the CHIA Exam Committee and plays a key role at NEHTA (National E-Health Transition Authority).

David has some exciting views on Australia's influence in the  digital  health  community, both nationally and internationally.

"Not having a clinical background myself, I had always been hesitant to describe myself as a health informatician. But the [CHIA] program has shown me that there is a broader, more encompassing definition of the role, and that everybody involved in the field has a contribution to make."
