|Title: Identifying and developing future CCIOs|
|Introduction: This interactive event is being jointly delivered by eHealth insider and the NHS Clinical Leaders Network and focuses on developing future clinical information leaders and identifying the skills and professional development needs they require.
The event is designed to appeal to a broad range of different clinicians interested taking on local information leadership roles.
The workshop forms part of the EHI CCIO Leaders Network, a new professional network dedicated to promoting local NHS clinical information leaders through a programme of meetings, events and online resources.
The CCIO Leaders Network has been launched to support current and future clinical information officers across the NHS. It builds on the momentum of EHI’s national CCIO campaign, which has already led to initial appointments being made.
This FREE interactive, practical event will provide an opportunity to hear from one of the first NHS CCIO trailblazers, a workshop and the opportunity to network. It will focus on the following themes:
• What makes a great CCIO?
• Skill sets
• Professional development
|Venue: Cerner Collaboration Centre, Paddington, London|
|Timings and date: 10.30 - 13.30, 29th March 2012|
|Programme Details: Programme to be confirmed but will follow the format of a workshop with 3 speakers, with the second session being dedicated to ‘group’ work where the outcome will produce a document that states what would make a good CCIO, their skill sets and what they need to achieve.|
|Who Should Attend: All clinicians interested in using information and informatics to improve the quality of care, and who want to learn more about the CCIO role and how they can be identified and developed in all organisations.|

When & Where
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.
