Big Health CIO debate: “Can informaticians also lead?”

November 3rd, 2014 by Open Reality

<a href="http://www team project” target=”_blank”>EHI Live ButtonDigitisation and paperless have been identified as essential to NHS modernisation, but who is best placed to lead the digital transformation of the NHS?

The Health CIO Network Conference at EHI Live will this year include what promises to be a lively and closely argued debate on the motion:


“This house believes that the skills and attributes required to be an expert informatics professional are mutually incompatible with those required to provide the transformational leadership necessary to take the NHS into the Digital Age”

Speaking in favour of the motion will be:

  • Gwyn Thomas, chair of UKCHIP and former CIO Welsh Government
  • Andy Kinnear, director of informatics and business intelligence at South West Commissioning Support Unit

Speaking against the motion will be

  • Daniel Ray, chair Health CIO Network,
  • Sean Donaghy, Regional Director of eHealth & External Collaboration at Health and Social Care Northern Ireland

The debate will be chaired by EHI Editor Jon Hoeksma.
