Ministry replaces National Health IT Board with digital advisory board

The NZ Ministry of Health has pulled the plug on the National Health IT Board, replacing it from next month with a new digital advisory board and leaving the future of the planned national EHR up in the air until a business case for investment can be presented to Cabinet.

Acting chief technology officer Giles Southwell told stuff.co.nz that the Health IT Board had met for the last time and would be replaced next month with a new digital advisory board. Health Minister Jonathan Coleman said in March that he would retain the Health IT Board despite the disestablishment of the National Health Board.
