Health ministry to extend contract with Red Rock

The board has undertaken a program of work to eventually replace the system

UXC's Red Rock Consulting will have its contract with the Ministry of Health extended by three years, says the board director of National Health IT Board, Graeme Osborne.

Red Rock manages and maintains components of the Ministry of Health’s legacy claims and payments system, which handles $7 billion of payments annually to the health sector.

The board has undertaken a program of work to eventually replace the system. Stream One, which handles contracts, is progressing well and will go live later this year, Osborne says.

Stream Two is related to aged care services, and Stream Three processes involve the sectors that deal with payments in areas such as pharmaceutical and dental.

Red Rock is responsible for the legacy CCPS and Proclaim systems. Osborne says there are 59 transaction types in all.

With multiple agencies sharing data, it is a complex system overall. Validation of multiple invoices is said to be particularly difficult.

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.
