We established our telehealth data standards working group several months ago and are working with Ministry of Health, district health boards, primary care and industry representatives together to explore the potential key attributes of data and how it is handled amongst standards, e.g:

1. Mode of consultation/appointment
2. Device mechanisms that generated data
3. Clinical findings generated by virtual or device means
4. Patient reported outcomes/effectiveness
5. Clinical episode outcome measures.
