Homecare Medical wins NZ bowel screening contract, IT solution tender nears
Telehealth service provider Homecare Medical has won the contract to act as the national coordination centre for New Zealand's national bowel screening program, which kicked off at Hutt Valley and Wairarapa district health boards last month.
The coordination centre’s responsibilities include managing the database and distribution of the invitations for the program, providing test kits to participants and ensuring that GPs receive their patient’s test results electronically. A tender for a long-term national IT solution for the program is expected to be released shortly.
