21 May: HISO 10085:2020 COVID-19 Contact Tracing Data Standard published
The HISO 10085:2020 COVID-19 Contact Tracing Data Standard has been published as part of the COVID-19 response. The standard's purpose is to ensure that all data collected and used in the contact tracing process is well-defined, properly structured and coded, and supports interoperability.
The initial focus is about supporting the consumer registration process and recording consistent information about customers and visitors to business locations.
HISO supports the development and adoption of health information standards in New Zealand.
