Meredith Makeham to leave ADHA for academic post
Chief medical adviser to the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) Meredith Makeham will leave the agency at the end of the month to take up a position as associate dean of community and primary healthcare at the University of Sydney's Faculty of Medicine and Health.
Professor Makeham has been with the agency since November 2016 and was previously a patient safety adviser to the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care. A practicing GP, she was also a member of the expert committee for eHealth and practice systems with the RACGP.
She has also held academic and research positions with the University of NSW and Macquarie University's Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research.
Interim ADHA CEO Bettina McMahon said her appointment was a testament to the key role she played over the last three and a half years.
The agency will announce interim measures for her work on its executive before her departure on July 31.
