Hospital CIO ranked 2nd most influential Government CIO in Australia

Author :

Alastair Sharman has been named one of Australia’s Australia’s four most influential Government CIOs as part of CeBIT’s top 50 Australian CIOs of 2016.

Sharman heads the ICT division at Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service where he and his team have recently introduced Tobii technology. The new developments allow immobilised patients to navigate apps using only their eyes, improving their quality of life.

“It’s about a young boy who this time last year was walking around, swimming – just a normal kid and in the space of a very short period of time, all he could do was move his eyes. As a dad that was pretty moving for me,” Sharman told CeBIT.

Whilst technology integration is part and parcel of achieving business outcomes, Sharman has found it is also capable of lifting morale in the ward by providing fun and relief for patients.

Sharman and the Health Service Chief Executive, FIonnagh Dougan, are co-presenting at the Australian Digital Hospitals Summit in Sydney this coming June.

Among 20+ other leading public and private hospital leaders driving the digital transformation in hospitals across Australia, Dougan and Sharman will present a leading case study:

The changing role of IM and ICT in the delivery of healthcare
·         Leveraging data (now available through digitation) to inform clinical and service delivery improvement and change
·         Incorporating the consumer and clinical leadership in the design and implementation of new digital capabilities
·         Moving towards integrated service models
