This publication updates the National Health IT Plan, which was published in 2010, and describes the priorities for IT investment in 2014 and beyond.
It describes the work that needs to be done to achieve the Government’s eHealth vision of all New Zealanders having electronic access to their own core health information.
Four priorities are identified for IT investment:
- electronic medication management
- national clinical solutions
- regional information platforms
- community-based integrated care initiatives.
Presentation slides (PowerPoint, 5.6 MB) summarising the main points of the IT Plan update are also available. You are welcome to use these in discussions with your networks.
