How digital will define NZ health: removing friction for improved patient experience

Digital innovation has played a critical role in building resilience in the global healthcare industry. Hospitals and pharmaceutical companies alike have turned to technology to enable virtual patient engagements and allow a globally dispersed workforce to do their jobs remotely now more than ever. But there is more work to be done, especially in New Zealand where the already stretched health system now needs a long-overdue digital tech injection.

Whether organisations are working on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to develop life-saving vaccines and therapies, increasing agility in medical supply chains, or protecting workers and patients, they need to accelerate and scale the adoption of digital technologies. These include telehealth, remote patient monitoring, and the use of digital channels to measure, assess, and monitor health status.

  • How can healthcare leaders overcome the challenges of securing critical systems and PHI data while enabling employee productivity?
  • How can organisations create an exceptional experience for their employees and patients built around secure, scalable, cloud-first solutions?
  • What must companies do to support the easy integration and sharing of information, providing access to accurate health data?

Job titles include CIOs, Directors, VPs, and Heads of Infrastructure and Applications, and other senior decision makers responsible for Healthcare in New Zealand.
