Digital Health Executive

The six organizations in Brockville, Kingston, Lennox and Addington, Perth and Smiths Falls, and Quinte Region have embarked on a journey that is setting the foundation for clinical services transformation and proactive population health management. The Lumeo initiative is a step towards developing an outcomes-based system supported through regional health information management. Lumeo, which is derived from lumen, is the Latin word for light. Lumeo speaks to the unifying power of light and clarity that will improve outcomes for everyone providing or receiving care in Southeastern Ontario. The formal Lumeo team came together in October 2021 and will provide leadership for the implementation of the Regional Health Information System (RHIS) project across the six partner organizations. This implementation will mark the starting point for the digital enablement of massive health care transformation within the region.

The Position

In this inaugural role, the Digital Health Executive will be instrumental in providing leadership for a regional clinical transformation across six partner organizations. The incumbent will begin with the implementation of a new Health Information System (HIS), Oracle Cerner, which will support the achievement of the organizations’ strategic goals of improved patient safety and quality across the continuum of care. With a vision for shaping digital health capacity and capability across the region, the Digital Health Executive will drive results and effectively lead the development of the integrated and transformational digital strategy amongst a multi-partner collaborative. He/she/they will work collaboratively with teams across all six partner organizations to maximize and optimize the value of the clinical system and future digital innovations to advance the digital health strategy for the partnership. Acting as an ambassador for the region’s digital health strategy, a key part of this role will be developing strong relationships with partners, including various internal and external stakeholders, to lead technology-enabled positive change across the region.
