The Ministry of Health's National Health IT Board recently held a series of public and community seminars on the electronic sharing of health information. The seminars were held in Auckland, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch and Invercargill, from July to September 2012.
They provided an update on changes to the way health information is shared electronically, and an opportunity to discuss the issues and what they might mean for future interactions with health professionals.
A document summarising the discussions, questions, concerns and major themes is now available on the Ministry of Health website.
The Ministry is happy to provide articles on the electronic sharing for health information for organisations' newsletters, intranets and websites. If you would like an article developed for you, please contact Robyn Nicholl.
There will be further opportunities to provide feedback on this work, and you can stay informed by visiting http://www.health.govt.nz/sharedhealthinfo.
