NEHTA Appoints a New CEO.

This press release has just arrived!

NEHTA names new Chief Executive

September 1, 2008. The National E-Health Transition Authority has named Peter Fleming as its new Chief Executive.

He will take over leadership of the organisation from acting Chief Executive Andrew Howard on September 29.

Melbourne-based, Mr Fleming leaves his role as General Manager Technology, Business Integration, for National Bank Australia to take up the new role. He was formerly the Chief Information Officer for Mayne Group Limited and before that Colonial Group.

NEHTA Chair David Gonski said the Board looked forward to working with Mr Fleming to meet the challenges of the national health agenda in the future.

He commended and thanked outgoing acting Chief Executive Andrew Howard for his outstanding contribution to the company for the past five months.

I am sure we all wish Peter good luck with his new role.

I do wonder, however, with the Deloittes National e-Health Strategy due to be handed to Government in the next month or two, just what role the NEHTA CEO will actually have in the larger e-Health picture six months or so from now, after implementation of the new strategy begins.
