Lessons learned from payroll disaster -- and previous clinician and clinical administrator roles -- to help direct the ship

As CEO and CIO, he's also pleased with the fact he is able to weave and blend business outcomes with the world of ICT.

'It's being able to bring the business focus into the ICT domain. To focus all of our staff from architects through to technical support people - to focus everybody on, 'so what are we doing for the business today?' And if you can't draw a line of sight between what you do in eHealth Queensland (the business), and how you're enabling better healthcare, more efficient healthcare, then you're probably in the wrong place.

"We're not here to play around and put new desktops in and new servers and networks and all of that. We have a higher order than doing those things. They are all important, absolutely important and they need to be reliable and resilient, and we need to protect them, but the key thing is making care better for individual patients."
