MOH seeks health IT offering

The Ministry of Health is looking for an IT health specialist to deliver an IT offering to Pacific health service providers in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

In July 2008 the Ministry conducted an ICT review with a selected group of Maori and Pacific providers. Out of 38 providers interviewed, only six had an ICT infrastructure that meets health IT standards.

The Ministry also found providers do not know what IT offerings are available.

According to the review, there is a lack of IT knowledge and providers are limited to vendors that support them. This means systems aren’t compatible with other health system platforms and with other health providers.

The review also found cost is a concern for all small providers, in particular internet connection and software licences which are expensive.

The specialist will need to demonstrate relevant experience in developing and delivering effective programmes to Pacific health service providers along with experience in understanding the IT needs of Pacific health service providers.

The deadline for replies is Tuesday, April 20.
