NZ MoH sets up data and digital division, renames national EHR

New Zealand's Ministry of Health has finalised a recent restructure that has seen a new directorate for digital and data created, and has also rebadged its national electronic health record project as the National Health Information Platform (nHIP).

Progress on the nHIP, which was first floated at the Health Informatics New Zealand (HiNZ) conference in Christchurch in 2015, has been stalled somewhat since then. An indicative business case was presented to the Cabinet Committee on State Sector Reform & Expenditure Control (SEC) in July 2017, but a request for more detail on its costs and benefits, followed by the change of government last October, slowed its progress.
