Standardisation of Health Information Technology in New Zealand

800px-new_zealand_23_october_2002

Park and Atalag have written a review of the standardisation of healthcare information systems in New Zealand. Along the way they discuss standards that are being used in other countries including the USA and the UK. They reference the various agencies in different countries with responsibility for standards.

The authors then focus on the New Zealand healthcare system and give a very helpful overview together with the national standards (HISO 10040.1, 10040.2, 10040.3) that have being developed and which utilise HL7. They also reference the endorsement of SNOMED CT with standard status.

This is a very useful overview both for standards in different countries as well as a detailed overview of the development of standards in New Zealand and this can be used in comparison with the developments in other countries.
