Will Reedy heads up Revera's new digital health practice
Digital health expert Will Reedy has been appointed to head up a new digital health practice for New Zealand cloud infrastructure firm Revera.
Revera provides cloud services to the Ministry of Health, Homecare Medical, Waikato District Health Board and Western Bay of Plenty PHO, among others. The company says it plans to offer more than just infrastructure modernisation and is focused on building a digital health ecosystem to help transform the delivery of healthcare across New Zealand.
Dr Reedy is an acute care doctor and has previously worked for Accenture, HP and Cap Gemini. He worked with NSW Health on its PCEHR strategy, digital hospital blueprint and its rural eHealth strategy, and was also the director of the Northern Electronic Health Record (NEHR) program for the Northern Regional Alliance.
He is also chair of the National Electronic Health Record Advisory Committee and facilitated a workshop at HiNZ last year on the HIMSS electronic medical record adoption model (EMRAM).
Dr Reedy said the rise of digital technology and customer expectations of personalisation and immediacy are changing the dynamics between patients and carers.
“Much of the digital technology to fulfil these expectations is here today, but delivering smart solutions requires expert hands and solid partnerships with healthcare providers,” he said.
He has been joined in the new practice by former Northern Regional Alliance technology program manager Jason Perry and former NZ Health Partnerships IT solutions architect Colin Tarrant.
