Background

This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 3 February to 19 February 2021. Find out more about the consultation process. Below is a record of the engagement.

The Commission on Excellence and Innovation in Health (CEIH) is a new SA Government organisation that provides strategic leadership and advice on excellence and innovation in healthcare.

State-wide Clinical Networks

State-wide Clinical Networks (SCNs) are groups of health professionals, health service organisations, consumers and carers who work collaboratively with the goal of high quality care.

SCNs operate across the continuum of care, in private and public sectors and across all Local Health Networks — both country and metropolitan. Its scope includes the whole South Australian health system.

SCNs will be supported by a Steering Committee who will influence outcomes and implement changes to services as required, with the leadership of a SCN Lead. All staff involved in the particular service area of the designated Network are considered members of that SCN, including those outside SA Health.

The SCNs Lead will report to the Commissioner through the CEIH Executive Director Consumer and Clinical Partnerships.

State-wide Clinical Genomics Network

The State-wide Clinical Genomics Network is the newest network being established by the CEIH.

Clin­i­cal Genomics has the poten­tial to reshape clin­i­cal prac­tice and to fun­da­men­tal­ly change the way we pre­vent, diag­nose, treat and mon­i­tor ill­ness.

It pro­vid­es the oppor­tu­ni­ty to have more pre­cise and tailored health­care and will enable tak­ing for­ward the South Aus­tralian Genomics Plan.

Help us shape the future of clinical genomics in South Australia and apply to be part of the Steering Committee.

More information about the State-wide Clinical Genomics Network is available on the CEIH website.
