Ministry of Health IT project on hold as Parliament halts Bill

“With no policy or legislative changes, it has been estimated that the project could be restarted and completed in six to nine months, depending on resource availability and priority against other projects."

A Ministry of Health project to develop an IT system to support a regulatory environment for natural health and supplementary products in New Zealand is on hold pending resumption of the Bill through Parliament.

The Bill was halted after its second reading in December 2013 and the project put on hold later last year. It's understood there are moves to seek harmonisation with Australian legislation.

National Health IT Board director Graeme Osborne says the project budget for the database is $1.83 million, just over half of which has been spent to date.

“With no policy or legislative changes, it has been estimated that the project could be restarted and completed in six to nine months, depending on resource availability and priority against other projects,” he says.
