CiLN members are invited to attend the UK’s Virtual Summer School next month, including a New Zealand session featuring Deputy Director-General Data and Digital Shayne Hunter.


Hosted by Digital, the summer school is an annual event bringing together chief clinical information officers, chief information officers and chief nursing information officers for learning, networking and collaboration.


The event is going entirely online in 2020, giving the opportunity for New Zealand members of the Clinical Informatics Leadership Network to attend and share international experiences and lessons on digital responses to Covid-19, as well as exploring what comes next.


CiLN and the Digital Health Networks in the UK already share a collaboration platform called Discourse where learnings from the Covid-19 pandemic and other questions and experiences are regularly shared between the two countries.


HiNZ and Digital Health are collaborating to bring you the New Zealand session on 24 July at 6pm. This will be followed by a session focusing on Australia. Further speakers will be announced soon.


Chief executive of Digital Health Jon Hoeksma says the aim of Summer Schools remains to bring together a diverse range of digital health leaders for sharing, learning and relaxed networking.


“The Virtual Summer Schools will also reflect on how the role of digital leaders and perceptions of digital have changed as a result of the crisis. How can the digital gains of the past few months be secured and become the new normal as the crisis recedes?” he says.


CiLN co-chair Nathan Kershaw attended and presented at the 2019 summer school with a Kiwi contingent and says it is attended by virtually all of the movers and shakers in the UK digital health scene.


“It is firmly rooted in the Digital Health Networks communities that CiLN has been modelled on and is a brilliant opportunity for New Zealanders to get involved,” he says.


Register now to attend any of the Virtual Summer School sessions.
