Free HiNZ webinar - digital inclusion

eHealth News

NIHI is sponsoring a HiNZ webinar on digital inclusion and ways to ensure the vulnerable are not left behind on Wednesday 11 November at 12.30 pm.

The New Zealand health sector’s rapid adoption of technology and virtual care in response to the Covid-19 pandemic risks exacerbating inequalities in the health system. Estimates are that up to 20 percent of the population will not have access or skills to embrace digital health services. Ensuring the vulnerable are not left behind has been identified as a key piece of work moving forward. This webinar covers local and national examples of digital inclusion projects and discussion around what should come next.
