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

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
