Our Partnership

The Precision Driven Health partnership (PDH), established in March 2016, is one of the most ambitious data science research initiatives to be undertaken in New Zealand. The partnership unites our health IT sector with health providers and universities to create health and commercial opportunities for New Zealanders.

Our founding partners are Orion Health, the University of Auckland, and Waitemata District Health Board, and our projects engage a wide range of parties across the sector. We have received additional funds from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, through the Partnerships Scheme.

Precision Driven Health was created to provide world-leading research into the emerging area of precision health. This involves applying new data science techniques toward understanding the massive volume of data about an individual being captured by health information systems, consumer devices, social networks, genetic testing and other sources.
