One of the key questions for any clinical information leader is whether they need to be a practicing clinician? What's the ideal balance between retaining clinical practice, experience and credibility and fulfilling the role of a Chief Clinical Information Officer?

Not necessarily

The infectious enthusiasm of CCIO Kim Ashall - who spoke at the event and was a physio but is no longer practicing - shows that a good CCIO does not have to be a practicing clinician. People on the panel thought it would be better for a CCIO to still be in practice but conceded that with people with great leadership qualities, lots of intelligence and enthusiasm could also make it work.
