CNIO Network Survey, 2019/20

May 2020

The results of the first Digital Health Intelligence survey to focus exclusively on members of the CNIO Network offer a ’state of the nation’ insight into nursing and allied health professional leadership in healthcare IT. It is clear that digitisation efforts often succeed or fail based on nurses, who commonly are the main users of systems. This report, based entirely on primary research, indicates the opportunities and obstacles for such involvement and leadership.

Key areas of investigation include:

  • Reporting structures for CNIO/AHP informatics professionals
  • Relationships between CNIOs/AHP informatics professionals and CCIO and CIO colleagues
  • The appetite for a formal career pathway for such professionals

The report will be of interest to anyone involved in healthcare digitisation, and particularly to those with a special interest in nursing and allied health professional contributions to this important area.
