National Health IT Plan
The National Health IT Plan published in 2010 has been updated for 2013/14.
It describes the work that needs to be done in 2014 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 in 2014 and beyond: electronic medication management, national clinical solutions, regional information platforms, and community-based integrated care initiatives.
You can read the updated IT Plan here.
A PowerPoint presentation summarising the main points of the IT Plan update is available here. You are welcome to use this in discussions with your networks.
The earlier Plan published in 2010 was the first of its kind in New Zealand to focus on national and regional initiatives and the integration of IT systems. The 2013 update to the Plan builds on the direction and priorities outlined in that earlier version.
