National Infrastructure Platform moves out of the red and into reset phase
New Zealand's troubled National Infrastructure Platform (NIP) is currently in a 'reset' phase, with District Health Boards able to choose infrastructure-as-a-service suppliers other than IBM following the latter's failure to roll out a working system on time.
According to the NZ Treasury's interim major projects performance report (MPPR), completed in November and released last month, the status of the project has improved from red/amber to amber and from a rest phase to a reset phase, but DHBs will now be allowed to choose other suppliers from a vendor panel as well as IBM's offering.
Other major projects that the report looks at include the single electronic health record (EHR) and the northern DHBs' Northern EHR (NEHR), which are both still at a pre-investment stage but are due to have some decisions made about them by the middle of the year.
