The role of the new health CIO
The CIO role in health has changed dramatically across the last few years, with many moving from the traditional technical focus to that of transformation, digital health and innovation. This panel presentation brings together some new wave CIOs to discuss their roles and challenges they face. The session will be completely interactive, so bring your questions, comments and ideas. 

The HISA Queensland Branch Annual General Meeting (AGM) will follow immediately post the event. All guests are invited to join in the AGM and refreshments.

5:00 PM Networking and registration
