Tim Kelsey resigns as ADHA CEO, heads to HIMSS

Update: Australian Digital Health Agency CEO Tim Kelsey has resigned after three years, announcing today that he will be taking up a new role with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) involving digital strategy development.

Mr Kelsey will finish up at ADHA on January 17 and the agency plans to appoint an interim CEO while a replacement is recruited.

A former journalist and former NHS England director of information, Mr Kelsey came to Australia to work as commercial and strategy director with Telstra Health in February 2016, but was appointed CEO of the new agency that August.

ADHA chief operating officer Bettina McMahon is also leaving the agency after 10 years with it and its predecessor, NEHTA.

Mr Kelsey said he would start his new job with HIMSS in February and will be based in Australia.
