National Health IT Board survives MoH restructure
New Zealand's National Health IT Board will remain as a distinct entity answerable to the director-general of health despite the disestablishment of the wider National Health Board under a restructure of the various health entities announced today.
Health Minister Jonathan Coleman said both the National Health IT Board and the Capital Investment Committee, which were sub-committees of the National Health Board, will be retained, but the board itself, which was set up in 2009 to plan and fund national services, fund and monitor district health boards and oversee capacity planning for IT, workforce and capital works, will be subsumed into the Ministry of Health.
Health Workforce New Zealand, the Health Quality and Safety Commission and the Health Promotion Agency will remain unchanged.
