Better Health with Better Systems
Patients First works within all parts of the New Zealand health sector to facilitate the development and implementation of information technology solutions and frameworks to support the delivery of health services to the public.
HEALTH INFORMATION SECURITY
We offer health information advisory and assessment services to help primary care providers comply with the HISF (Health Information Security Framework). This includes cloud risk analysis, privacy impact assessment, data governance and service penetration testing.
HEALTH IT SOLUTIONS
We have developed solutions and software that enable integration and the electronic transfer of patient information from one health care provider to another (GP2GP) and transmission of other patient data e.g. lab results and referrals through HIM (Health Intelligence Messenger). Other innovative services include hMael Secure Email for Health, and Conporto EDM (Event Detection & Mitigation).
NATIONAL PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT
We work alongside the Ministry of Health, Primary Health Organisations (PHOs), and Practice Management System (PMS) vendors as programme managers for the delivery of sector health information integration projects and change processes. Projects include NES (National Enrolment Service), NZePS (NZ ePrescription Service), Community Service Card holder entitlements, and GP2GP electronic transfer of patient records.
PRIMARY CARE LIAISON
We provide information leadership support and encourage a collaborative community between Primary Health Organisations (PHOs) through the facilitation of forums, special interest groups, workshops and the provision of a collaboration platform, PHOCUS.
