Long-time ADHA board member named Chair

The Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) has appointed Lyn McGrath as the Agency’s new board Chair, with members of the Agency expressing gratitude for outgoing chair Dr Elizabeth Deveny.

McGrath brings over 30 years of expertise in complex and regulated sectors, including health and financial services, and has served as a non-executive member of the Agency’s board for over seven years and as the Chair of the Agency’s Audit and Risk Committee.

“It’s with great enthusiasm that I take up the role of Chair of the Agency Board. I look forward to continuing to advance the national digital health agenda and building on the momentum that has already been achieved under Dr Deveny’s leadership,” MGrath said.

“The leadership and vision of Ms McGrath will ensure the Agency can deliver the seamlessly connected and person-centred system that health consumers are expecting,” said Deveny welcoming the new Chair.

Agency CEO Amanda Cattermole PSM appreciated the outgoing Chair’s contribution. “As a board member since the Agency’s inception, including almost five of those as Chair, Dr Deveny led the Agency through a transformative journey which included providing better access for all Australians to their health information through My Health Record, making electronic prescriptions available across the country, significant innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic and the new my health app. Dr Deveny’s leadership and contribution will leave an ongoing legacy for Australia’s digital health agenda.”

McGrath’s three-year appointment as the Chair of the Australian Digital Health Agency Board takes effect on 29 September 2023.
