Author: Karen Blake is co-chair of CiLN and head of clinical informatics at healthAlliance.


CiLN membership continues to steadily grow and we will soon hit 400. As the network matures, its governance is also changing with the introduction of elected members of the CiLN Advisory Panel.


The plan is to start with three new members who will be voted on to the panel by the wider membership, with more elected places to become available in time. More information on how the election process will run to come soon.


CiLN is creating a working group to develop companion documents for our Clinical Informatics Position Statement, including business cases for hiring clinical informaticians and some generic position descriptions indicating experience, qualifications and soft skills employers should look for. Anyone who wants to help with this can contact Becky George, Alex Forsyth or Steve Earnshaw via the NZ Informatics Forum on Discourse.


The panel has also decided to run the Clinical Informatics Leadership Award again in 2020. Entries will open later in the year so keep a look out for news on this and start thinking of a deserving winner to nominate!


In Aotearoa July marks Matariki signaling Te Tau Hou Māori: the Maori New Year. Each of the nine stars holds a certain significance over our wellbeing and our environment. Matariki is the star that is connected to the health and wellbeing of people, and also to the gathering of people, connection to the environment, hope and reflection.


With CiLN being a gathering of people who are focused on the health of all New Zealanders, Matariki holds special significance. I encourage you all to take a moment to connect with each other during Matariki: through Discourse, via email, a phone call, Zoom or text, or in person over a coffee or lunch. I believe our community is stronger because of the connections we have with each other.
