Kiwi firm launches healthcare ICT brand

Simplhealth’s area of expertise will be the development of ICT platforms that help healthcare professionals collaborate, communicate and work better together.

NZ firm, The Simpl Group, has launched Simplhealth, a brand that will focus on developing healthcare information technology solutions.

Simplhealth’s area of expertise will be the development of ICT platforms that help healthcare professionals collaborate, communicate and work better together. The platforms it develops will also support the implementation of health policy.

CEO of SimplHealth, Jodi Mitchell said, that an ageing population and more expensive healthcare is a huge issue for many countries.

“It has become very clear that maintaining affordable and effective healthcare for those who also fund the system through taxes is becoming an urgent issue for governments to address. It is here where information technology solutions can play an important role by achieving realistic cost savings, through automation, while also enhancing standards and efficiencies.

“Simpl has always been very strong in health IT and these strengths have evolved into our strongest business sector in recent years. Information technology is already a central part of the medical system – our commitment is to make all collaboration in healthcare work far more effectively This new direction is a natural step for us and will focus our team on providing heightened value for healthcare clients and better health for patients,” she said.

According to the firm, Simplhealth follows on expertise gained over years on health programmes, including the likes of the national disability management system Socrates, the Before 4 School Check programme to support child health, and the implementation of the eRx Script Exchange national ePrescription service in Australia.

Simpl was established in 1989 and has offices in Auckland and Wellington. It started as a systems integration business and has worked in a number of business sectors

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
