Invitation to express an interest in participating in the Australian Digital Health Agency’s Clinical Reference Leads program

Tasked with improving health outcomes for Australians through the delivery of digital healthcare systems and the national digital health strategy for Australia, the Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) commenced operations on 1 July 2016.

The Agency is responsible for all national digital health services and systems, with a focus on engagement, innovation and clinical quality and safety.

Its focus is on putting data and technology safely to work for patients, consumers and the healthcare professionals who look after them. Established as a statutory authority in the form of a corporate Commonwealth entity, the Agency reports to State and Territory Health Ministers through the COAG Health Council.

The Agency has recently delivered the Australian Digital Health Strategy which was endorsed by the Coalition of Australian Governments (COAG) in August this year. The Agency’s Board has also approved the 2017-18 work plan and the broader five year work plan, which outlines the key priority programs and projects over the coming years.

The Agency has an established Clinical Reference Leads (CRL) program that comprises healthcare professionals with contemporary clinical practice experience and digital health subject matter experts from varying fields across the healthcare sector. The CRL program supports the delivery of high quality, safe, useful and usable products and services and their work is embedded in the Agency’s product development lifecycle.

Recognising the expansive nature of the work plan, the Agency is calling for expressions of interest from interested and suitably qualified clinicians and digital health subject matter experts to further expand the CRL program across four levels of engagement as outlined below. The Agency’s intention is to establish a CRL program that is representative of the Australian health sector and offers a diverse range of backgrounds, skills, experiences and perspectives to benefit the work of the Agency. We are also seeking dedicated representation from across Australia.
