Getting Started

The New Zealand Telehealth Resource Centre has guidance and resources for people who want to set up or improve a telehealth service. We can also offer ongoing support. This resource centre was developed by Mobile Health and the New Zealand Telehealth Forum.

This website brings together information about the various regulations and guidelines that apply to telehealth. It includes case studies of where telehealth is already providing benefits. Site visits, workshops and demonstrations are also offered by the resource centre team. A key resource is the Guideline for Establishing and Maintaining Sustainable Telemedicine Services in New Zealand. This sets out the steps you need to take, and all the considerations, for establishing a telemedicine service.
