Australia hosts NZ's leading health tech companies

10 April 2015: For the first time, New Zealand’s health technology experts will visit Australia as part of the first New Zealand Connected Care Showcase.

New Zealand is recognised for its world-class health sector, powered by a leading health IT industry. New Zealand is a hub for award-winning health technology providers who attract international attention and investment for sophisticated health products, services and information systems including regional electronic health records (EHR) and practice and clinical management systems for hospitals and GPs.

Comprising of 10 leading New Zealand health technology companies, the multi-city roadshow covers Sydney (13 April 2015), Brisbane (15 April 2015) and Melbourne (17 April 2015).

Each of the three events will be opened by a welcome presentation by Michael Rillstone, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise Beachheads Advisor, Managing Director of Rillstone Wells and former Chief Executive of Healthshare NSW.

“The roadshow provides a direct link to senior representatives at companies delivering New Zealand’s world-class health systems across the continuum of care from hospitals, community clinics to telemedicine and home care. Leading health technology providers whose products and services result in smarter hospitals, faster IT interfaces, reduced costs and variations of care and better outcomes for patients,” said Rillstone.

“We encourage Australia’s healthcare industry to attend the Connected Care Showcase, particularly health and social care professionals who are interested in advancing improved delivery of coordinated, person-centred care and health outcomes,” continued Rillstone.
