NZ Telehealth Resource Centre

Welcome to the NZ Telehealth Forum and Resource Centre. This site has guidance and resources for people who want to set up, improve or use a telehealth service within New Zealand. This resource centre is a joint initiative of Mobile Health and the New Zealand Telehealth Forum.

Recent Updates:

The New Zealand Health System faces real challenges in relation to the demands placed upon it by an aging population facing increasingly complex medical problems. In addition, there is an ongoing need to ensure equity of access to healthcare for all New Zealanders. We believe that telehealth, thoughtfully applied to the right clinical situation, enables the delivery of better, more cost-effective healthcare.

Our goal has been to bring together guidance and resources that should make doing so more efficient and effective, offering you the support you need as you go. We offer ongoing support at help@telehealth.org.nz
