WA Health looking for new CIO

WA Health is on the lookout for a new CIO for its Health Support Services (HSS) shared services arm following the resignation of Holger Kaufmann after two years.

Mr Kaufmann took up the role in June 2018 following a stint as executive director of the GovNext-ICT infrastructure reform program. HSS provides a suite of technology, supply, workforce and financial services to WA Health.

A spokesperson for WA Health said Mr Kaufmann had resigned in June 2020. “[Executive director of transformation and strategy] Jonathan Smith has been temporarily appointed as acting CIO while we undertake a permanent recruitment process,” the spokesperson said.

WA Health is currently undergoing a number of large, multi-million dollar ICT projects, including planning for a statewide electronic medical record, implementing a new diagnostic imaging platform and rolling out a new laboratory information system.

It released a 10-year Digital Health Strategy in October last year and is also running a $408m project called HealthNext to improve infrastructure, part of the $3 billion GovNext-ICT program.
