Co-Chairs GIHIG

Paul Claxton

Paul Claxton is Orion Health NZ Head of Public Sector based in Wellington. Paul has more than 30 years IT experience with the last 15 seeing him working in the health IT sector in New Zealand and the UK. Paul's prior healthcare roles, including positions with Microsoft, iSOFT, CSC, and DXC Technology, saw him develop an understanding of the broader health ecosystem.

The combination of Paul’s recent international experience with his understanding of the New Zealand system presents an ideal opportunity to contribute to the DHA's Global Innovators Health Industry Group (GIHIG) which is focused on New Zealand digital health companies and organisations that export digital health products and services overseas as well as seeking to help improve domestic procurement related practices. Formation of the GHIG comes at a vital time in New Zealand's quest to drive the adoption of digital solutions that connect and engage citizens, empowering them to participate actively in their own healthcare. It also presents an opportunity for companies considering export markets where New Zealand’s reputation for innovation is recognised as world class.
