New Zealand’s national telehealth service – a year on
HOMECARE MEDICAL NEVER SLEEPS: In June 2015, the company won a $257 million national tender to combine New Zealand’s existing helplines into one integrated national telehealth service. It offers advice on everything from medical emergencies, quitting smoking and dealing with poisons, to alcohol and drug addiction, immunisation, depression and gambling, plus after-hours teletriage services for 600 general practices. “People expect to get help and advice through a variety of channels, they expect to be able to talk to a ‘real’ person and they expect a joined up system that ‘knows’ them.”
