System C Healthcare has appointed Jacqueline Davis as chief nursing informatics officer (CNIO), the first such role in the company’s history and a move that will ensure clinicians have a voice as the company commits to digital clinical excellence.

Davis is a longstanding employee of System C and has nearly 30 years of experience as an NHS nurse. She joined The Learning Clinic, now part of System C, in 2014 where she was involved in rolling out electronic observations and digital early warning scores to help NHS hospitals digitally transform nursing and medical practices.

She now works with customers, advising on the clinical adoption, optimisation and digital transformation of the company’s Enterprise EPR solution.

Davis said: “I’m very excited about the potential of this new role – moving forwards with clinical services, listening to the clinical voice internally and externally, and providing support where it is needed.

“There are some very positive things on the horizon both at System C and the customers that we work with, and I’m looking forward to being part of it as CNIO.”

In the new role, Davis’ responsibilities will include championing System C clinicians internally and supporting areas of the business such as HR, product and marketing.

She will also act as an ambassador for the company, taking up speaking, teaching and networking opportunities across a range of events such as clinical engagement groups, user groups and the Florence Nightingale Foundation Early Digital Healthcare Leadership Programme.

Dr Jonathan Shaw, System C clinical director, said:  “We are proud of the new CNIO role, which should demonstrate how important our clinician relationships are to us.

“We value the guidance and feedback that we receive from the many doctors, nurses, and other clinicians that we have on staff, as well as those that work for the healthcare organisations implementing our digital solutions.

“Collaborating and engaging with clinicians helps us provide them with a better experience and tools that are perfectly tuned for their needs – which in turn supports them to improve the lives of their patients.”
