WentWest names NSW Health analytics head as CEO
Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WentWest) has named Ray Messom, currently the executive director of the NSW Ministry of Health's System Information and Analytics (SIA) branch, as its new CEO, starting in July.
Mr Messom will take over from Walter Kmet, who led WentWest for seven years before taking up the job of CEO of Macquarie University Hospital in March.
In a statement, WentWest said Mr Messom had expertise in health and business economics, health system performance, informatics and analytics. Mr Messom has also held roles with PwC here in Australia and in his native Canada.
Recent collaborative work with PHNs include refinement of needs assessment processes, integrated care rollouts and progression of the NSW Data Linkage Project.
WentWest has been heavily involved in the Western Sydney Integrated Care Project, in association with the Western Sydney Local Health District.
