Neville Board named as Victoria's next chief digital health officer

Medication safety expert Neville Board has been named as the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services' new chief digital health officer.

He replaces Paul Cooper, who has been acting in the role since Andrew Saunders stood down in September last year.

Mr Board is a registered nurse with a long interest in health informatics. He is currently the head of the eHealth and Medication Safety program at the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) in Sydney.

He is also an adjunct fellow at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation at Macquarie University and a fellow of the Australasian College of Health Informatics.

He has most recently been involved in a joint project led by ACSQHC and the Australian Digital Health Agency looking at how to increase the use of the My Health Record in hospital emergency departments.

Mr Board starts his new role on March 26, with Dr Cooper staying on until March 29.
