I think the authors view of conflict of interest is a bit more limited than commonly held in corporate governance circles (but happy for this view to be debated). Welcome the appointment of board members with lived experience in the vendor community - COI would only apply if the matters directly impacted the individual AND if these conflicts were not declared. If there is to be some balance on the board then what is missing is a general health informatician (the ranks of the Australian College of Health Informatics could provide one) and also any member with expertise in the Health IT Standards Community (recognising that Sam Heard has experience with OpenEHR).
