HiNZ forced to cancel November conference
Health Informatics New Zealand (HiNZ) has been had to cancel its 2020 national conference, which was due to be held in November in Hamilton.
HiNZ CEO Kim Mundell said in an email to members that running a large conference required a significant upfront investment and there was still uncertainty over whether delegates would be allowed to attend or large crowds able to gather together.
Ms Mundell said HiNZ considered running a multi-day virtual conference instead a survey of members showed most would be unable to pay to attend an online event.
The next HiNZ conference is scheduled for November 29-December 1 2021 in Wellington.
