Monica Trujillo to leave digital health agency after two years
The Australian Digital Health Agency's chief clinical information officer, Monica Trujillo, is leaving the agency after two years in the role.
Dr Trujillo was appointed Australia's first ever chief medical information officer (CMIO) during her time with UnitingCare Health in Queensland, where she was in charge of clinical engagement during the roll-out of the country's first digitally integrated regional hospital, St Stephen's at Hervey Bay.
She was appointed acting general manager for clinical and consumer engagement for a three-month period by the board of the new agency in June 2016, and was appointed permanently that August. Her official title was CCIO and executive general manager, clinical and consumer engagement and clinical governance.
She is a qualified medical doctor who specialised in obstetrics and gynaecology before working for a number of years in medical administration.
In an announcement to agency staff, ADHA CEO Tim Kelsey said Dr Trujillo had been involved in recruiting and training new clinical reference leads, developing the stakeholder engagement framework, organising the consultation on the National Digital Health Strategy, implementing clinical quality frameworks and governance structures, and designing and implementing the provider readiness approach for the My Health Record expansion project.
Dr Trujillo will officially leave in mid-August.
