Integrating Primary and Secondary Healthcare Systems

Primary and secondary healthcare data has the potential to enhance the accuracy of healthcare decision making; however, it is often siloed and difficult to share and access these data types. If healthcare data across primary and secondary sectors complemented each other, it would greatly assist in the assessment and provision of healthcare to individuals. In New Zealand, the company HealthStat has a primary healthcare intelligence product that is built into software used by 95% of general practices, while Orion Health’s solutions are widely used by all District Health Boards. This project will develop a proof of concept that will explore how Orion Health’s customers can leverage HealthStat’s intelligence tools for the benefit of secondary health providers and researchers.
