John Thurgood

New South Wales, Australia

Having had a fascination with gadgetry and technology since a very young age, building a career around information systems has been a rewarding journey. With 20 years specialising in healthcare, working up from frontline IT support to Health Program management, I’ve been working to transform the way patient data is collected to improve clinician decision-making, promote evidence-based pathways of care, and enable health system performance measurement.

My experience includes strategic planning, program management, performance and quality management, and enterprise information management. My IT skills include SAP BusinessObjects, Sybase IQ, SQL Server, Windows Operating Systems, Exchange Server, SharePoint, and at a pinch, OpenVMS.
