A new pathway to Fellowship for digital health executives has been announced by the Australasian Institute of Digital Health.
The move is part of the Institute’s foundation year strategy to grow recognition for individuals with depth of knowledge in digital health and health informatics within the ranks of senior executives across the health system.
All Fellows and Associate Fellows who are executives will also automatically join the Institute’s Digital Health Executive Network (DHEN), a community of practice bringing together senior executives and leaders from across the digital health ecosystem.
DHEN Chair Richard Royle said: “There is a growing global interest from health executives taking the lead on digital in their organisations – never more so than in 2020 as together we face the challenges of a pandemic. Digital health executives and leaders are set to continue to be at the forefront of guiding the health sector through transformation and change.”
Institute CEO Dr Louise Schaper said digital health executives possess unique knowledge and skills that deserve recognition. They also value being part of a supportive network of peers to learn from and support future generations of talented managers and leaders.
“Fellowship is a key strategy to build workforce capacity as we work towards our goal of a strong and dynamic digital health leadership across the health sector,” Dr Schaper said.
In addition to the executive pathway, Fellowship is available to qualified professionals and academics as well as PhD candidates in the Fellowship by Training program.
