IHE International Board approves the "Australian IHE Deployment Committee"!

On February 12, 2009 the IHE International Board formally approved "IHE Australia"! This means that Australia now has a formal "Deployment Committee" of IHE International and has a seat on the IHE International Board.

The founding organisations have formed the IHE Australia Founding Board as follows:

- Medical Software Industry Association (MSIA): Vince McCauley
- HL7 Australia: Klaus Veil
- Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA): Jon Hilton

- Royal Australian New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR): Peter MacIsaac

The IHE Australia Founding Board nominated Vince McCauley as its Chair and will be seeking to expand the organisational membership in the near future. IHE Australia will also continue to pursue the formation of the "IHE Asia-Pacific" group.

Our thanks go to IHE International Board members Chris Lindop (GE, USA) and Todd Cooper (BSF, USA) for their support in navigating the administrative approval process - they will continue to assist us in establishing an effective and well-governed local IHE organisation.

The consensus of the Board is that the 2008 IHE events were substantial and successful steps forward and planning for 2009 has commenced:
