CGNZ’s pilot flies at innovation centre

LOCAL Cap Gemini licensee CGNZ joins the line-up of Microsoft partners involved in public sector pilot projects funded by the Microsoft Innovation Centre.

The company is the technology partner to the Department of Child, Youth and Family (CYF), which is one of three public sector agencies selected to receive proof of concept technology solutions at no cost from Microsoft.

The other two partners are FirstBase and Simpl, who were both involved in earlier projects, and are working with Northland District Health Board (NDHB) and Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB) in the fourth round of funding by the Wellington-based centre.

CGNZ is working with CYF’s Services Board to develop a solution that enables social wor-kers to access case data from remote locations securely, while ensuring confidentiality of personal information using data encryption.

In their second innings together FirstBase and the NDHB aim to provide an electronic monitoring system between hospital specia-lists and general practitioners to facilitate the review process for surgical patients.

Meanwhile, the project by Simpl, involved in its third project with the centre, and the WDHB aims to introduce real-time feedback between ophthalmologists and diabetic patients through video conferencing and instant messaging, reducing the need for patients to have recurrent visits to specialists at different locations. CGNZ director Paul Cook says being involved with the project enables it and CYF to trail some innovative thinking that they may not have been able to do without assistance from the Innovation Centre.

“We can take ideas and test them out rather than wondering where the funding and resources will come from. The Innovation Centre is an excellent initiative and we are delighted to be involved,” he says.

Cook says CGNZ will use its expertise in mobility on the project, which was developed jointly with CYF. Other companies involved in previous rounds include EDS, Intergen, Optimation, Provoke and Synergy.
