HINZ 2011 Conference and Exhibition – Auckland, Nov. 23-25

The HINZ (Health Informatics New Zealand) Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Aotea Centre,  Auckland, New Zealand on 23-25 November, 2011 (see http://www.hinz.org.nz/page/conference). With the conference theme “Working together … working smarter”, among the international guest speakers this year will be Dr David Blumenthal, Professor Enrico Coiera, Professor Sabine Koch, Dr Susan Newbold, Andrew Howard, and Baldhur Johnsen.

The event features workshops on intelligent data analysis, and interoperability reference architecture, while other  sessions will include a broad set of topics, including health IT evaluation (Jim Warren), mobile health (Robyn Whittaker), virtual health records (Tom Bowden), post-Christchurch earthquake emergency responses, and nurses’ electronic access to evidence.

A key feature of the event will be the ‘Clincians’ Challenge’ – an opportunity for clinicians and vendors to work together to use  information technology to solve an important and recurring problem that health professionals face in their ‘day-to-day” practice (http://www.hinz.org.nz/page/conference/conference-2011-challenge). Clinicians have presented the challenge by putting forward 56 problems they face in their day-to-day practice that the innovative use of information technology could help solve. HINZ have chosen the three most interesting; now is the opportunity for vendors to respond.  Vendors are invited to choose one of these three challenges and describe their concept or solution to solve the problem. All vendors are invited to participate. Submissions can be made by individual vendors or groups. Submissions should be a Word document, no longer than 8 pages. Please e-mail it to admin@hinz.org.nz by 3pm on 31 October 2011. There will be no extensions.

The winning problem case in 2010 came from a colorectal cancer care nursing service that ‘wants to ensure a seamless and timely interface between hospital and community-based continued care and social support systems’. The winning vendor, Orion Health, is working with the clinician to develop a system and expects to have it completed by the end of this year.

HINZ is a Member Society of IMIA (www.hinz.org.nz).
