NZ Telehealth Forum celebrates 10 years
This month, the NZ Telehealth Forum (NZTF) celebrates its 10-year anniversary - an exciting milestone for the predominantly volunteer-based organisation which began in 2012 with a mission to provide leadership in sustainable models of care enabled by telehealth that support equitable, patient-centred care. The organisation was formed when a telehealth symposium ‘A Call to Arms’ was held in 2012 at the National Institute for Health Innovation (NIHI) and the NZ Telehealth Leadership Group (NZTLG) formed as an advisory group for the Ministry of Health.
