Digital Health CCIO and Health CIO Network
The CCIO Leaders Network is a multi-platform discussion and events programme designed to promote and develop current and future clinical information leaders to support the growing community of CCIOs across the NHS. The network focuses on creating a career ladder for the development of future CCIOs.
The primary goal is to create the beginning of a professional community of support, best practice and knowledge that embeds and spreads the CCIO role within the NHS. The focus is on promoting the case for clinical leadership on IT and information to achieve quality and productivity improvements
The CCIO Leaders Network builds upon the success of the EHI CCIO campaign launched in July 2011, which encouraged every NHS organisation to consider appointing a chief clinical information officer to bridge the gap between doctors and nurses and the technologists installing and running IT in hospitals and the community. Supported by the British Computer Society and the Royal College of Physicians, the campaign attracted support from the majority of Royal Colleges; the BMA and NHS Confederation; more than forty health IT firms and dozens of individuals.
