New Zealand Healthtech Opportunities Study

Invite to attend a free NZHIT workshop to discuss the future of our sector

NZHIT members are invited to attend the following important free workshop in Christchurch.

The winds of change are upon us and it's important for NZHIT members to know what's coming and how to influence and position themselves for the future.

In this regard,  NZHIT, with the support of NZTech, is leading a comprehensive study into the current state and future opportunity for healthtech to contribute to a productive, sustainable and inclusive New Zealand.

This study will result in a fact-based report to be used to highlight opportunities, barriers and risks associated with creating an environment where technology can fully enable the delivery of health, disability and social care services that we can all be proud of.

Identifying the barriers and coming up with the solutions is critically important.  This workshop provides members with the ability to feed their knowledge and expertise into the early phases of the study's development.

The Ministry of Health will also be providing an update on the National Health Information Platform (nHIP), which is an important component of the changes coming towards us all.
