About us

Enabling a Healthier NZ

New Zealand Health IT (NZHIT) was formed in 2002 as a not-for-profit, incorporated society and has grown to become the peak body for the New Zealand digital health industry sector. Our membership represents the majority of digital health companies and organisations operating in New Zealand as well as a broad cross-section of healthcare providers, consultancies, legal, insurance, banking, government, regional agencies and international companies with an interest in New Zealand's health sector.

This strong network brings together custodianship of nearly 100% of this country's health related data and we work collaboratively across the health sector to position digital health technologies as a key enabler of quality health, social care and wellbeing services. Our members make a significant contribution to, and investment in, the development and implementation of innovative digital health solutions to support and enable the future direction of health delivery, both in New Zealand and internationally.  

Our vision is to have a vibrant member network that makes its contribution towards "Enabling a Healthier New Zealand" through world class health and wellbeing for all New Zealanders' fully enabled by digital technology.

Our purpose is to provide an open environment that enables a coordinated, informed voice that maximises social and economic value for New Zealand through digital technology.
