The CCIO Leaders Network has been established to promote and develop current and future clinical information leaders across the NHS. The network is being developed in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians and the British Computer Society. It has been made possible thanks to the support of foundation sponsors BT, Cerner and CSC.
Each year the CCIO Leaders Network delivers an extensive programme of events with our partners, culminating in the CCIO annual conference at EHI Live. Face to face discussions are backed up by the CCIO Leaders Network website, providing online resources, interviews, case studies and community features.
Sign-up to receive information about forthcoming events or join the CCIO Group on EHI Groups to contribute to discussions on clinical leadership, best practice and the professional development pathway for future CCIOs.
Without clinical input systems do not deliver a usable tool for the workplace. At a time when we are all seeking efficiencies this is one way the NHS can reduce unnecessary duplication of effort. Co-operation and co-ordination with all stakeholders is key to successful implementation
Having been involved with many IT implementations, not only in the UK (within the National Programs or Client funded) but in Europe as well. I always find that Clinical and other Health Professionals input arrives too late.
Even PAS systems from an early stage needs clinical input to achieve an IT system that the Healthcare Professional wants and is meaningful in use (and is used%u226).
As we move towards more clinically rich solutions the role of the CCIO becomes even more important within any Healthcare Provider environment.
The Information Centre welcomes this rallying call across all healthcare professions. Clinicians need to take professional responsibility for the data that describes their activity, it is only then that we can ensure that data quality accurately reflects what happens to patients. The clinical community are used to using local information to improve services , their influence and leadership is essential in ensuring that the same applies to national information. The CCIO role will help provide the engagement needed to deliver the service and cultural changes required, across professional as well as organisational boundaries.
