If you are a transformational, dynamic leader who likes to think about the big picture then consider this exciting opportunity with the Digital Health Secretariat.

Digital health is all about using information and information technology, such as hospital information systems and electronic medical records, to improve patient health and care. Technology advances over the last decade open up the possibility of new ways to get healthcare, from emailing your doctor, to electronically viewing your own health record, to booking appointments online, to downloading an app to monitor your blood pressure and talk to a nurse.
