After thirty years of leadership and following treatment for a brain tumour, Ian McCrae is adjusting his role to deliver the company's people plan and leadership transition as the last phase of his five-year rebuild strategy.
"Part of the five-year plan involves me getting Orion Health into a strong position for growth with a strong leadership team across all areas of the business and globe," McCrae says.
Lucy Porter has joined Orion at a governance level and for special projects.
She re-joins the company after holding various roles within the organisation, including business operations of Rhapsody, Orion Health Product Research - Development and UK Professional Services Project lead.
As a director in the business, Lucy rounds out the governance team of Orion Health, alongside Ian and Orion Health's chairman, Michael Falconer.
Craig White and Grant Anthony have joined as Orion Health's chief data officer and chief
information security officer, respectively.
White returned to Aotearoa for the role after two decades offshore working in the healthcare industry, focusing on data and its application to complex healthcare problems.
In contrast, this is Grant's first role in health, and he brings a wealth of experience from the finance and broader technology sector.
"Thirty years ago, Orion Health was an idea based on seeing health problems in New Zealand I knew technology could help solve," McCrae adds.
"Now we've amassed a track record of breakthrough innovation; from being the first New Zealand company to get the internet, right through to revolutionising healthcare for end users via our Digital Front Door technology, and we're backing this up with consistent profitability."
