Final link secured for shared health records for one million Kiwis
The HealthOne shared care records program has gone live in the last of the five district health boards on New Zealand's South Island, representing the final link in the chain that will allow health professionals in both primary and secondary care to view a patient's health information.
HealthOne was first developed through a partnership between Canterbury DHB, primary care network Pegasus Health and clinical software vendor Orion Health in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquakes that devastated Christchurch. It has since been rolled out to South Canterbury, Southern and West Coast DHBs and is now accessed more than 3000 times a day.
