HIC 2017: Professional college mooted for digital health executives

Former PCEHR review chairman and start-up adviser to the Australian Digital Health Agency Richard Royle is leading a move to develop a new professional college for digital health executives, aimed at providing continuous education and career paths for the emerging profession.

Mr Royle told the Health Informatics Conference (HIC) in Brisbane yesterday that the plan was to cover both Australia and New Zealand, with the college tentatively named the Digital Health Executives Network of Australasia.

Kate, do these decision makers re the Digital Health Executives Network of Australasia consider themselves separate from ACHI or HISA or HIMMA in Australia? It seems a very strange decision. Background would be interesting reading.

I'm chasing this up for you, Terry. The announcement certainly caused a few raised eyebrows in the audience, particularly among ACHI members.

From what I'm hearing Tony, the use of the term "college" is regretted.
