Vensa Health takes out top spot in NZ Health IT awards
Auckland firm Vensa Health has won vendor association New Zealand Health IT's (NZHIT) innovation award, taking out the top award over Celo and Orion Health.
Vensa is best known for its TXT2Remind practice-patient messaging system, which is used by 70 per cent of the GP market in NZ to deliver health messages and appointment, screening and medication reminders.
The company also launched its Vensa.com online appointment booking platform last year, promising to add further functionality in the near future.
Vensa Health CEO Ahmad Jubbawey said the award sent a signal that the platform was “the best of its kind”.
“Vensa is shaping the market by taking medical centres on a digital transformation journey to increase their adoption of technology,” Mr Jubbawey said. “We want to enable more innovative and effective ways of doing business and encourage access to healthcare.
“This is particularly important at a time when the primary care industry is increasingly under pressure with a retiring medical workforce.”
He said the company had developed strong relationships with GP providers to gain insights on how technology can increase more access to primary care.
“When it comes to technology innovation, to create a compelling business proposition and for it to be readily adopted it must be simple to use,” he said.
“By improving efficiency for healthcare providers, and making it more convenient, more affordable and more accessible for people to access their GPs services.”
