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.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

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.
