Update on Health Informatics NZ Conference


Just came back from Roto-Vegas (Rotoroua) attending Health Informatics New Zealand conference, I am so tired can hardly open my eyes, each night meeting people till 2:30 am , early start at 7.00 am.

Some of the interesting topics were online patient portal, SNOMED CT.

Met lots of PMS vendors like Profile (IntraHealth), Medtech32, Next Generation and My Practice.

Enigma was there demostrating their new PREDICT tools.

But good to be back home with family.
