Who we are
We are a team of IT leaders and professionals who are focused on enabling a better-connected health system for the benefit of patients across New Zealand.
We are innovative and love to think outside the box to find patient-centred IT solutions and provide quality educational material to support the health sector.
Working right across the health sector – with funders, product vendors and health service providers – we look for the gaps and identify opportunities to use technology and collaborate to create a more cohesive and patient-centric health system.
We are supported by strategic leadership from our Board, Steering Group, and Shareholder, and are funded by the Ministry of Health.
The Patients First team are a highly capable group representing many years of experience, expertise and leadership in the health and IT sectors.
