Queensland Health CIO quits

The Queensland Health chief information officer and CEO of eHealth Queensland, Colin McCririck, has resigned.

The CIO has left his position to take a private sector job overseas. McCririck joined the Department of Health in 2015 as CTO before being appointed CIO and chief executive at eHealth Queensland in December.

He has worked to deliver the state’s eHealth investment strategy, released last year, a Queensland Health statement said.

“He has guided major projects such as the recent eHealth Queensland Expo, interoperability and the integrated electronic medical record program,” said Queensland Health director-general Michael Walsh.

“I’d like to wish Colin the best of luck in his future endeavours; his extensive experience will be sorely missed.”

The CIO was briefly embroiled in a Crime and Corruption Commission investigation during his tenure.

“I am proud of the work that we have achieved over the last 12 months improving access to patient information and working towards a fully integrated health system,” McCririck said.

“A big focus has been on collaborating with Hospital and Health Services – working together for better outcomes. “We’ve also improved our delivery speed – providing the right solutions for our customers faster than ever before.”

McCririck will continue in his role until 8 July. An international recruitment program for a replacement has begun, Queensland Health said.
