Sally Glass - Managing Director
is a Healthcare and IT professional with a detailed understanding of healthcare and the delivery of health in online environments honed during a career spanning close to 40 years.
Her aptitude for things technical led Sally to specialise in intensive care, and as computers became more pervasive she commenced technology studies in 1990 before moving from a fully clinical role to the Information & Management Technology Division within NSW Health in 1991.
Having applied her skills to a variety of projects and industry secretariat roles over 9 years, she joined the Collaborative Health Informatics Centre for 4 years as National Manager Health Services until its closure.
Sally established CHIK Services in 2002 building a range of trusted independent research, publication, event and communication services that inform and connect senior executives across health, government and technology.
As an example, CHIK's annual Health-e-Nation Leadership summits have secured keynote attendance and collaboration from national health IT leaders from USA, UK, Canada, EU, Hong Kong and India.
In 2009 Sally
established an online community, eHealthspace.org
- the voice of healthcare - as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee - building on the knowledge and networks established by CHIK
to promote open communication and collaboration, telling the stories of people and institutions working at the forefront of ehealth online and via social media.
