Monday 25th September, 2017

Cutting-edge, lifechanging e-health companies Celo, Vensa and Orion Health have been named finalists in the New Zealand Health IT (NZHIT) annual innovation awards.

The winner will be announced at the HiNZ conference awards in Rotorua on November 5.

“For the second year in a row we received extremely strong entries and the judging panel found it difficult to determine the final three entries,” NZ Health IT chief executive Scott Arrol says.

“All three finalists are providing systems and solutions that will help to save lives, produce better results for Kiwis with mild to serious health problems – at home or in the hospital. This is an exciting time to be in health IT.”

“NZHIT members represent custodianship of nearly 100 percent of all health-related data in the country and the three finalists are outstanding examples of the innovation that’s happening to enable a healthier New Zealand.”
