Board Advisory Committee members announced

Message from Jim Birch, Chair of the Australian Digital Health Agency: On behalf of the Board of the Australian Digital Health Agency I am pleased to announce the appointment of members to the five Board Advisory Committees — Clinical and Technical; Consumer; Privacy and Security; Audit and Risk; and Digital Health Safety and Quality Governance.

In recognition that the Agency will only succeed in achieving the vision of digital transformation by working in partnership with the healthcare sector and consumers, one of the first decisions the Board made was to appoint the Board Advisory Committees.

We chose to undertake an open process in establishing these Committees by seeking an expression of interest from people across the community.  The Agency received over 300 applications which is testament to the exceptional skills and expertise we have in Australia, and we are excited by the genuine interest across the community and health sector in progressing digital health. 

The Board would like to thank everyone who expressed an interest.   

I believe the appointments the Board has made will ensure it receives the best advice from a strong distribution of membership skills, experience, gender, ethnicity, diversity and geographic coverage. 

The Board now looks forward to working with all committees on helping us achieve our digital health vision and see Australians living healthier, safer lives.
