Bettina McMahon to leave digital health after 10 years
Australian Digital Health Agency chief operating officer Bettina McMahon has tendered her resignation after 10 years with the agency and its predecessor NEHTA.
An ADHA spokesperson said Ms McMahon will be leaving early in the new year and recruitment to fill the role will begin soon.
Ms McMahon “has stepped down from the COO role and will focus exclusively on some important initiatives over the next seven weeks and will be actively supporting Rupert Lee who is acting COO until the role can be filled,” the spokesperson said.
Ms McMahon is a risk management specialist with a masters in public health and an MBA in IT management. She was appointed executive general manager for government and industry collaboration and adoption when ADHA commenced in 2016, having overseen the transition from NEHTA as acting CEO.
She led a number of projects at ADHA, most notably overseeing moves towards secure messaging interoperability.
