As Director of Austin Health Dept Intensive Care until October 2016, he oversaw the expansion of the ICU, advocated for a high performance team culture and increased consumer representation within the ICU Quality framework.
In 2017 he was appointed Clinical Co-Lead of the Safer Care Victoria, Critical Care Clinical Network which is tasked with improving co-ordination, intra sector learning and quality improvement of the 46 public and private ICUs in Victoria.
His strong interest in Clinical Informatics relates to the belief that increasing person focussed care, personalised medicine, efficiency, safety, quality improvement, evidence based practice and cross sector collaborative care, will be facilitated through the use of the EMR and its enabling technologies and processes. The data generated through EMR documentation will greatly expand our audit and research capability through analytics and translational medicine opportunities.

In 2017, he was also appointed to the Health and BioMedical Informatics Centre, at University of Melbourne. This role includes, teaching, research and course design for clinicians and informaticians and assisting in the uptake of informatics knowledge and capability in the health professions.
