Chief Information Officer
The Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Health and Care Partnership (BLMK) is one of the first wave of STPs to join together to create an Integrated Care System and take the lead in planning, commissioning and delivering care for a local population of over one million. We bring together NHS providers, commissioners and local authorities to work in partnership to improve health and care in our area. As an ICS, BLMK will have the opportunity to contribute to new models that will shape future policy for social care systems and the NHS as a whole.
We are looking for a Chief Information Officer (CIO) to join our leadership team and help re-design the health and social care system to meet the needs of our population. With a budget of over £1bn, we know we can deliver much better outcomes for patients, however we need a strategic innovator, with in-depth experience of working in the health and care system, to see through this change. This is a unique opportunity for those that wish to shape the NHS and social care system of the future.
You will have the full support of a system wanting to invest in digital innovations, and within BLMK there is already considerable investment planned due to the Global Digital Exemplar (GDE) programmes at our three acute trusts. The role will be high-profile and responsible for ensuring that all stages of BLMK’s digital programme are delivered with necessary public consultation, appropriate information governance and within all regulatory assurance frameworks. You will need to develop options for establishing an ICS Digital Team to take forward the core elements of the overall strategy and the collaborative capabilities that are being assembled.
We are looking for an ambitious and imaginative individual to shape a health and social care system of the future, through the provision of industry-leading population health management, information systems and technology leadership. Can you help us use data to transform our models of care? Do you understand the importance of looking at the entire population and identifying the groups who need specialist, proactive attention and help? We want to deliver real continuity of care to our residents and can only do that with new digital capabilities.
You will have extensive knowledge of information management gained through leadership of informatics functions and board level representation, and an interest in how population health can maximise care across a health system. You will be commercially aware, abreast of the developments in supplier capabilities, and ready for the challenge of providing collaborative leadership to a transforming system. In return you will be working in a high-profile role where visibility of progress and success will be widely seen and recognised.
