The 2021 New Zealand eHealth hot top 10

It was the cybersecurity scare at Waikato DHB that dominated our most-read articles for the year, and the incident continued to make headlines in the following weeks and months. The saga of the build and roll out of the National Immunisation Solution was also top of mind, as was the controversy that followed it.

Medtech’s brand new Application Layer EXchange (ALEX) platform was also keenly watched as more vendors signed on. Medtech’s huge footprint in primary care in New Zealand means people sit up and take notice when it rolls out something as new – and potentially revolutionary – as this FHIR-based initiative, and our readership figures proved pertinent.

It may be still in its planning stages but the new Dunedin Hospital is a big topic of interest. In a city that hosts one of the finest medical schools in the Southern Hemisphere, aiming for HIMSS Level 6 is a good start.

Rounding out the top 10 were the Midland DHBs’ plans for a new medication management system, Auckland’s Your Health Summary and Medtech’s purchase of Dr Info.
