ORCHA are delighted to introduce and welcome Clive Flashman who is joining ORCHA as Director of Strategy.
Welcome to ORCHA, Clive Flashman!
Clive comes to the team with a strong background and interest in digital transformation in health and care. Clive was one of the leading innovators of Knowledge Management in the UK at the start of the dotcom boom, and published in a range of journals at the time. He then re-entered the NHS where he set up a national Knowledge System for patient safety, facilitated a WHO committee, chaired a global HL7 Special Interest Group and sat on the NHS Information Standards Board and NHS National Knowledge Service.
He is a member of the eHealth & TeleMedicine Council for the Royal Society of Medicine, and has lectured and mentored at a number of Universities. Clive has worked as one of a small team of global healthcare specialists within CSC where he was tasked with thinking about how CSC can best position itself to deliver the solutions that the healthcare markets around the world.
We feel very lucky to be able to welcome Clive to the team and we know he will help our mission to “promote better health apps for better outcomes”
