Information for health IT suppliers
Having Connected Health specifications makes it easier for new IT suppliers to enter the health sector market and allows for innovation.
Note: The Connected Health Programme is certifying networking products only at this stage.
The health IT industry will be given advance warning of any future plans to develop new specifications/standards, and will be invited to participate in their development through the New Zealand Health IT Cluster. The Cluster is the representative body for working with the industry on the development of Connected Health specifications.
Below is further information for telecommunication service providers or suppliers of networking products
If you are a supplier with a networking product, gaining Connected Health product certification will allow the users of your product to interconnect with the secure Connected Health network, and, therefore, with other healthcare providers on the network.
The Connected Health Network is being developed to meet the requirements of future sector initiatives, including National Health IT Plan initiatives such as eReferrals and eDischarges. It will therefore be the network of choice for all sector initiatives that transfer health information, and a requirement for all new initiatives that require approval from the National Health IT Board.
