Better Information for Better Care - New Zealand's Approach to Efficient and Affordable Care
Executive Summary
According to the OECD, evidence is growing that, if left unchanged, Europe's current healthcare systems will become unsustainable within the next 15 years. As budgetary pressures take hold, finding efficiencies has become central to the preservation of high quality care. This combined with ageing populations suffering from chronic conditions, and lower proportions of individuals providing the tax revenue on which healthcare funding depends, is creating the perfect storm.

Every European nation has a vested interest in protecting and improving the health of its citizens, and many are seeking and finding ways to leverage IT for this purpose despite the complexity and scale of the various healthcare systems. New Zealand, a relatively small and young country, is well placed to offer a new perspective to Europe, not least drawn from its innovative technological approaches to healthcare challenges, while containing costs.
