Description

About the seminar

Dr Watson will give an overview of the NSW Bureau of Health Information’s work to provide the community, health professionals and policy makers with information that enhances the visibility of healthcare system performance in NSW, informing actions to improve the safety and quality of healthcare, and strengthen accountability.

In particular, Dr Watson will discuss Bureau of Health Information’s Strategic Plan: 2019-21, its new strategy for the NSW Patient Survey Program, and the different ways researchers can work with the Bureau and use its patient-reported experiences and outcomes survey data.

Speaker Profile.

Dr Diane Watson is the Chief Executive of the NSW Bureau of Health Information. She has led the establishment of three reporting agencies in Australia that use big data to drive decisions on healthcare provision nationally and locally.

Prior to joining Bureau of Health Information, Dr Watson was the inaugural Chief Executive Officer of the Victorian Agency for Health Information, established in 2016 to monitor and report on public and private services that stimulate quality and safety improvements, increase transparency and accountability, and inform the community. She was also the inaugural Chief Executive of the National Health Performance Authority, established by the Australian Government to monitor, and report on, the performance of 1000+ public and private hospitals and 300+ health regions.

Dr Watson was the inaugural Chief Executive of the Bureau of Health Information from 2009 to 2012. She has held senior management positions for almost 20 years measuring, monitoring and reporting on the performance of healthcare systems to drive improvements in health, care and productivity. During this time, she has set the future direction of high-profile, board governed agencies and inspired a strong sense of purpose among highly talented and specialised workforces.
