ADHA on the hunt for advisory committee members
The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) has put out a call to the healthcare sector to join one of five advisory committees that will advise the board on shaping the agency's work.
The advisory committees cover clinical and technical, consumer, privacy and security, audit and risk, and digital health safety and quality governance. Charters outlining the focus of each committee are available on the ADHA website.
Committees will meet between six and eight times a year, and remuneration is in line with the allowances set by the Remuneration Tribunal for holders of part-time public office. This states that the chair of each committee will receive an annual fee and members will receive a daily fee of $784 and a tier 2 travel allowance.
(The tribunal's determination for the ADHA shows that the chairman of the board is paid $112,290 a year and board members receive $56,150.)
Only qualified medical or healthcare practitioners, healthcare CIOs or those with experience in health industry software are eligible to sit on the clinical and technical committee.
Applicants are asked to email a one-page overview of the contribution they could bring to a committee and their CV. Applications close on September 28.
