Digital Identity in Health - NZHIT Networking Event

New Zealand has an active and engaged digital health community, and we are excited to be exploring how digital identity can enable and unlock digital health problems and opportunities.

In partnership with Digital Identity NZ, and supported by Umbrellar and Microsoft NZ, NZHIT is organising this event to highlight the incredibly important area of digital identity; not only in health but across all agencies and markets as it is being viewed as a key to creating opportunities and unlocking a number of challenges.

It is important to understand how other market sectors are approaching this topic and how this could be applied to healthcare. Digital Identity NZ members represent a cross-section of industries and market sectors in New Zealand and we're pleased to be able to draw on their experts to join the panel discussion at this event. NZHIT and Digital Identity NZ are both members of the NZ Tech Alliance.

You're invited to join us to listen to two of this country's leaders in the digital health and cloud environments as well as have the opportunity to interact with a panel of four market experts representing both health and non-health sectors.
