Victorian health CIO Andrew Saunders stands down

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services' chief information officer and the director of its digital health transformation program Andrew Saunders is stepping down this week.

Mr Saunders, who is also a member of the Australian Digital Health Agency's Jurisdictional Advisory Committee and the governing council of HIMSS Asia Pacific, was in the position for just over two years.

Before joining DHHS he ran the IT for WorkSafe Victoria and the Transport Accident Commission and was also a non-executive director of Alfred Health, where he chaired the information and communications technology board committee.

It is not clear as yet why he is leaving but a DHHS spokesperson confirmed that he will finish this Friday. The spokesperson said his position will be advertised in due course.
