The original plan was devised under the leadership of New Zealand’s National Health IT Board, and completed in 2010. It set out a strategy for the five years between 2010 to 2014. This update to the National Health IT Plan signals future directions for 2015 to 2019. It discusses major achievements and identifies new challenges since the Plan was published in September 2010, and outlines the strategic drivers for the work under way. In doing so, it describes the work programmes and their state of adoption, and lists the order of priorities for implementation. It also briefly covers the important role of patients and consumers, clinicians, health leaders and IT vendors in co-designing solutions and bringing about change.
