The Agency Board is encouraged by the strong response received from people interested in joining us to help us achieve our digital health vision and see Australians living healthier, safer lives. After careful consideration of all submissions by the Agency Board, the EOI and selection process is now closed.

The Agency is established under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (Establishing the Australian Digital Health Agency) Rule 2016 which provides for the creation of Advisory Committees following consultation of proposed members with Health Ministers. This consultation is underway for the Clinical and Technical, Consumer, Privacy and Security and Digital Health Safety and Quality Governance Advisory Committees and will be completed on 21 December 2016. Following this time, the Board will move to formally appoint members and communicate outcome, with inaugural meetings of Advisory Committees planned in February 2017. The establishment of the Audit and Risk Committee does not require consultation with Health Ministers, and the appointment of members is currently being progressed by the Agency Board, with communication of outcome to follow shortly.
