HiNZ 2019: nHIP on track for July 2020 incremental roll-out

A business case for New Zealand's proposed national health information platform (nHIP) is due to be delivered to the government for cabinet approval next February with the intention that it begin an incremental roll out in the next financial year, a Ministry of Health official says.

The government has also set up an interim digital investment board with the intention to appoint a permanent board by the middle of next year that will provide advice on how digital and data can transform the health sector and prioritise investments.

The US Sequoia (https://sequoiaproject.org) has achieved this and connected over 200 independent major healthcare systems and 70 odd health information exchanges. - moving 80million healthcare documents a month! Based on IHE's Cross Community Exchange standards (which are increasingly adopting FHIR as an exchange option). Connected regional exchanges are the way to go, recognising the value of a national component such as MyHR in Australia.
