​Accenture consortium takes home Ministry of Health tech contract

The Ministry of Health selects strategic partner to support the development of the two-stage business case for the single electronic health record (EHR).

The Ministry of Health has selected an Accenture and MartinJenkins consortium as the strategic partner to support the development of the two-stage business case for the single electronic health record (EHR).

Following a competitive request for proposal process, the combined bid came out on top after eight tenders were received and evaluated by a joint team of both Ministry and sector representatives.

According to both parties, the proposal submitted by the Accenture consortium was considered to “offer the best value for money”.

“We were impressed with the depth and breadth of the responses - it was clear this is an area where a number of the respondents have niche skills,” Ministry of Health CTO and digital services officer, Giles Southwell, said.

“Accenture consortium’s response demonstrated key skills across the board that will help in developing a robust business case for the single EHR.”

Terms of the deal will see Accenture working with the Ministry's EHR project team on the indicative business case, which is expected to be presented to Cabinet for approval in early June 2017.

Depending on acceptance, the detailed business case to follow will be delivered in late 2017.

“The team at Accenture and MartinJenkins are looking forward to working jointly with the Ministry to deliver a strong, supported business case for the EHR,” Accenture New Zealand managing director of Health and Public Service, Leigh Donoghue, added.

“This is an important digital health initiative with the potential to significantly improve care for New Zealanders while supporting further health sector innovation.”
