What can NZHIT offer you and your organisation?
You will join a strong network of members and key stakeholders that acts as a collective to provide the voice for the health technology industry sector through leadership, collaboration and delivering value. You will be represented across a number of related sector activities and have the opportunity to be directly involved as well.
For example, these include the engagement processes with MOH to develop the digital health strategy and related standards covering the likes of interoperability, connected health and digital identity. You can also be involved in specific special interest groups that represent key areas of the health sector such as the "virtual health industry group" and others (see Interest Group section).
This is all part of our broader strategic leadership position that ensures you are part of an influential network that is a trusted and relevant partner when it comes to enabling the delivery of quality health and social care services. In addition, you will be provided with a range of member benefits such as -
Tailored member plan - we undertake a strategic member session with you to make sure we understand "what makes you and your organisation tick" so that we can tailor defined benefits that will deliver value for your membership of NZHIT.

What services can NZHIT provide your organisation?
"NZHIT members are our customers and we work hard to help them be successful" (Scott Arrol, CEO NZHIT)
Sector Leadership - as the industry representative body we provide direction and leadership for the sector for key issues, opportunities and challenges to be proactively highlighted. We work with key parties to assist with creating successful outcomes that "enable a healthier New Zealand". Our members are custodians of the majority of New Zealand's public health data and they take this responsibility very seriously.
Engagement and Advocacy - as the industry representative body we develop and provide many opportunities for members to engage with the health sector, and wider, both collectively and individually. We work closely with our Alliance Partners to provide mutually beneficial opportunities for all stakeholders involved.
Special Interest Groups - our extensive membership creates opportunities for members working within common areas of interest to form into Special Interest Groups and work collaboratively for mutual benefit.
Introductory Services - the NZHIT member , alliance partner and stakeholder network is extensive. It covers the majority of digital health organisations operating in this country (and exporting internationally), healthcare providers, funders and policy-makers. We are a key "connector" in the sector and seek to put people together where collaborative opportunities can be developed into successful outcomes.
Networking Opportunities - we work on the principle that "you get out what you put in" and create multiple opportunities for members to network and engage.
Events - with more than 20 events organised and run annually we offer many opportunities for networking, education and sector engagement. These range from specific NZHIT-only run events to partnering with other organisations (such as HiNZ, HL7NZ or the NZ Tech Alliance) to widen the spread and depth of an event. In most cases, NZHIT members enjoy either free or discounted registration options to NZHIT-only events and also where we have a partner arrangement in place.
Special Events - we will also organise and run individualised events for a member such as breakfast or lunch meet-ups where specific topics can be discussed within a smaller, focussed group of people.
News and Resources - we're proud of the fantastic work our members do to create digital solutions that enable high quality health services both in New Zealand and globally. Hence, we use our website to highlight and showcase members and their news stories as well as provide an avenue to post case studies, white papers, sector reports, presentations and employment opportunities. This is available to all members and alliance partners to take advantage of.
Tailored Member Plans - we sit down with you to understand what's most important for you so we can identify key areas to focus on for you to gain full value from your membership.
Partnerships and Collaboration - we have a range of special Alliance Partner arrangements that provide numerous benefits to members. Our collaborative approach creates many opportunities to engage across New Zealand's health and social sectors, and the wider technology sector.
Consultancy and Advice - we provide advice and consultancy type services to members throughout the year. Most times this is covered in your membership fee plus we can provide specific consultancy services at an agreed rate to members and non-members, depending on what you require.
Project Management - we have a number of independent project managers in our network that we can tap into when you need to scale up for a specific project.
The schedule is based on category levels that relate to revenue derived from New Zealand's health and disabilities sector, ACC and the private healthcare market. Please don't hesitate to make contact if you have any queries relating to these categories and the fee schedule.
