Te Whatu Ora – Health NZ will focus its technology spend on solutions “which bring immediate, measurable benefits, and which promote our equity and efficiency objectives”, board chair Rob Campbell says.
Campbell gave a keynote address at Digital Health Week NZ 2022 in Rotorua, where he talked about Te Whatu Ora’s goal of ‘unify to simplify’, which he described as “not centralisation for its own sake, but simply to get understanding and control of the health services we inherited.
“We do not and will not have much money to spend on new technologies. That means we have to prioritise those which bring immediate, measurable benefits, and which promote our equity and efficiency objectives,” Campbell said.
