Orion Health has welcomed Carey Campbell to the New Zealand-based team in the role of New Zealand and Australia Clinical Director.

Campbell joins Orion Health from Southern Cross Healthcare, where she was the Director of Nursing, a role she has held since 2008. Before this, Campbell worked at Waikato District Health Board, where she held a number of clinical, nursing education and nursing leadership roles.

Campbell was the clinical lead and product owner for the innovative partnership between Orion Health and Southern Cross Healthcare that developed and successfully implemented the electronic patient record across the 16 Southern Cross hospitals throughout Aotearoa.

Brad Porter, CEO at Orion Health, says Campbell is a strong addition to the Orion Health senior leadership team.

"We know the expertise Carey brings from her time at Southern Cross Healthcare and Waikato DHB puts her in an excellent position to hit the ground running at Orion Health," Porter says.

"Orion Health isn't just a technology company. It utilises the insights of experienced medical professionals and infuses those with world-leading technology.

"Carey's focus on producing quality healthcare systems and processes, alongside her extensive background in the New Zealand healthcare industry, means she is well-placed to help Orion Health revolutionise healthcare."

In her new role, Campbell will be the advocate for the clinical end users of Orion Health products by engaging and collaborating with customers and local communities with a goal of ultimately making Orion Health's technology deliver the best possible outcomes.

"At Orion Health I'll be working on best-in-class health technology that delivers better conditions for health professionals while improving health outcomes across populations," Campbell says.

"I'm looking forward to adding my experience to the team of world-leading health and technology experts at Orion Health."
