CCIO Leaders Network aims
“To support and develop
current and future clinical
information leaders”
Why, CCIOs?
• We’re using the term generically – not CMIOs
• Based on simple proposition that health IT
projects do better when clinically led
• A role that will appeal to a broad range of
clinicians not just doctors
• Drawing on US experience of CMIOs (Chief
Medical Information Officers and Chief Nursing
Information officers) over past decade
• NHS Information Revolution depends on local
information leaders – strategy recognises value of
CCIOs and CCIO Leaders Network
Florence Nightingale – the first CNIO?
Florence Nightingale 1820-1910
The founder of modern nursing was a pioneer in
the visual presentation of information and statistics
to highlight seasonal sources of patient mortality in
military hospitals.
NB - Since 2008 ANA has marked her birthday, 12
May, as Nursing Informatics Day
Nurse information leaders needed
• Biggest professional clinical group in NHS – 300K
• Ensure focus on nursing needs and practice when
IT solutions being selected and deployed
• Using data to measure and improve clinical
performance and outcomes
• Help provide a trusted interpreter between
clinical, management and technology groups
• Ensure patient focus to information use
