The technology arm of Queensland's Health department has put out the call for its first-ever chief digital strategy officer, one of two new deputies that will report into acting CIO Mal Thatcher.
The new eHealth Queensland executive will "drive and optimise digital strategy" and will be responsible for "enterprise information assets," according to a job ad.
"eHealth Queensland is going through significant organisational change. This is a new role and one that will be drawing together functions from across the organisation," it said in a job ad.
"The CDO champions the use of digital solutions in business model design, and all aspects of the business to create business success."
eHealth Queensland is the department's IT support agency, delivering and maintaining technology for Queensland Health plus the state's 16 hospital and health services.
The new digital strategy executive will need to set the foundations for the new function.
The successful candidate will report to Mal Thatcher, who is currently acting as the chief executive of eHealth Queensland and the Health department's CIO, as it looks for a permanent replacement for Colin McCririck following his de[parture last month.
eHealth Queensland is also currently hunting for a chief customer experience officer, who will also report into Thatcher.
The successful applicant will be tasked with "embedding the customer at the heart of business strategies".
"You will play a key role designing future customer experiences from the highest level of design principles all the way through to end- to-end customer scenarios and interactions," its job ad states.
Queensland Health just recently committed to its first 20-year plan for IT investment.
