Presenters

Bianca Jordaan Change and Adoption Manager, eMR Connect

Bianca has previously managed change for large health programs, including a state-wide nursing tool and the national My Health Record. Her career in change management evolved from a background in project review and management, as she was drawn to ‘the people side’ of project implementation. With health programs, Bianca believes it is most important to engage the clinicians throughout the change; however, to reach the stage where an individual clinician is engaged, there are so many layers of stakeholder engagement you need to factor in first, including the professional associations, technology providers, government bodies and executives.

 

 

Joanna Rappolt Evaluation and Benefits Manager, eMR Connect

With 20 years' experience in the health sector gained across New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Australia, Jo Rappolt has combined her professional expertise in both nursing and e-health implementations and solutions with her passion for patient safety in her role as Evaluation and Benefits Manager with the eHealth NSW eMR Connect Program
