IT Security and Governance Expert – AI, IOT and COVID-19 are changing healthcare IT

I strongly believe that Information Governance supports better and safer patient care and increases customer satisfaction by providing a framework for using and sharing information in a safe and lawful manner.

I am a proud husband, former NHS staff, traveller to the Far East and Asian food lover.

In my spare time I like travelling around South-east Asia (especially Indonesia), cooking Indonesian food and studying trends in health informatics development in the Far East.

I am keen to hear from healthcare managers in Southeast Asia to explore new opportunities, share ideas and exchange experience about governance (information and clinical), hospital management, use of social media, eHealth and telemedicine. Let me show you how your organisation can be more efficient, safer, smarter and more agile by using a well-managed governance framework. Investing in governance will increase profitability and improve customer satisfaction. Have a look at my portfolio to see how and help you in achieving your targets.

In my role as Information Security Architect at Cerner UK within the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Governance department I am focusing on ensuring that enterprise security is implemented in a consistent, coherent manner that is compliant with country specific legislation, regulations and good practice across the globe.

I am responsible for GRC within Europe and supporting my team in the USA, Berlin and India. I am working closely with IT, Legal and Regulatory Affairs to ensure that Cerner’s solutions improve patient safety and satisfaction while also driving efficiencies and savings within the healthcare setting.

I provide leadership throughout the entire development life cycle of Information Security solutions. This includes assisting with policy and standards management, providing governance support for reference architectures, and providing strategic security guidance to the business through threat modelling and risk analysis.  This includes responding to requests for information and proposal around information security, compliance and IT risk management both from clients and during new business development.

Indonesia’s humongous healthcare plan
On 1 January 2014 the government in Indonesia launched the largest public health insurance scheme in the world. It united a bewildering array of current schemes to cover the entire population, with the poor getting their health care free. Click here to listen to the BBC Radio Crossing Continents program.
