IT system for bowel screening program missed 15,000 invitations: Ministry

The interim IT system that was used during the pilot of the national bowel screening program at Waitemata District Health Board along with human error caused up to 15,000 eligible people to miss out on an invitation for screening, the Ministry of Health has revealed.

It was initially thought that 2500 missed out because their addresses in the National Health Index (NHI) were not up to date.
