ADHA loses chief digital officer

The Australian Digital Health Agency’s first chief digital officer, Steve Issa, has left the organisation after three and a half years.

An agency spokesperson said Mr Issa had left for personal reasons. His role will be filled temporarily by technology, planning and delivery manager Holger Kaufmann while the position is advertised.

Mr Issa previously worked for Service NSW and was formerly a councillor on Sydney’s City of Parramatta council.

At the agency, he was the key design authority for national digital health solutions with a focus on consumer and provider experience.

He oversaw an ongoing project to develop a consumer mobile app that will use the My Health Record’s mobile optimised FHIR gateway.

“We are grateful for Steve’s contribution to the Agency and wish him the very best in his next endeavours,” the spokesperson said.

The salary for the position in 2017 was $330,000 per annum plus superannuation.
