Our Vision

Smart Solutions for Better Health

Our vision is for New Zealand to be recognised as a leader in the provision of smart solutions for better health through the development and implementation of innovative and evidence-based health services enabled by eHealth technologies.

Our Mission

A Strong and Vibrant Network

Our mission is to develop a strong and vibrant network; identifying opportunities and delivering value to its members that enhances their ability to innovate, grow and thrive.

Our strategic direction is based on four key drivers; Leadership, Business Development, Collaboration and Sustainability.

What We Do

We are an independent, representative organisation that advocates on behalf of our members and the health sector to decision-makers, policy setters and strategic planners for improved health services enabled by smart technology-based solutions.  Additionally, we provide a wide range of membership-based benefits that includes networking events, newsletters, information flows, connection services and much more.

We have a well established working relationship with the Ministry of Health and we act as the primary conduit of information and views between the health technology sector and Government. We also have a number of strategic collaborations with key stakeholder groups including the National Health IT Board, NZ Trade & Enterprise, Callaghan Innovations, Ministry of Business, Innovation & Enterprise, leading Universities, research institutions and innovation hubs.
