HiNZ 2016: Single EHR the next frontier in better health outcomes: Coleman

New Zealand Health Minister Jonathan Coleman outlined his vision for the development of New Zealand's digital health strategy by 2020 at the HiNZ conference in Auckland today, naming the single electronic health record (EHR) as the next frontier in achieving better health outcomes and highlighting the number of patients accessing patient portals and the new National Telehealth Service as examples of new ways of delivering and receiving care through digital technologies.

Dr Coleman said it was a year to the day that the new telehealth service went live, and in that time around 425,000 people had used the service. Growth in monthly calls is booming and more services and channels will be added over the coming months, including new mental health services.
