The New Zealand healthcare sector is under constant pressure to cut costs and improve services at the point of delivery. NZ Healthcare Mobile technology is making this a reality and proving beneficial to healthcare professionals, who spend a lot of time out in the community.
Leading the charge with the conversion to this mobile technology is New Zealand owned company Healthcare of New Zealand Holdings Limited (HHL). They are using this technology to provide an enhanced toolset for Registered Health Professionals at the Point of Care. Kinross Group’s proven secure mobile software platform enables HHL’s thousands of New Zealand healthcare professionals to capture data on tablet devices in real time.
NZ Healthcare Mobile Technology is beneficial to Professionals
HHL, Group Manager, Strategic Business Improvement, Jan Hilder says, “Healthcare professionals are busy people, who naturally want to spend more time with their clients, not laboriously filling out forms by hand. We could see that we had a problem in the way that we gathered data, and how this was stretching our staff, so decided to go mobile with AMS.”
“Some education and training was required to get HHL’s healthcare professionals up and running on the new technology, but because it is so intuitive, the transition was quick and readily embraced. There was some concern around security and privacy of information, which was quickly allayed by the knowledge that AMS is hosted in New Zealand. In addition we have wrapped the AMS application inside a MobileIron layer which also ensures complete security for the device” said Hilder.
Clients Using NZ Healthcare Mobile Technology
Anecdotally, some of HHL healthcare professionals thought that the technology might be a barrier when working with clients, but in fact, it has been a bridge. One of the first clients to interact with the tablet was so excited about being able to sign a clinical form electronically and said, “This must save you a lot of time, dear.”
By adopting AMS, HHL healthcare professionals are able to access and complete forms while consulting with clients; agree a service plan; and obtain immediate client verification and consent. This has revolusionised the way HHL healthcare professionals are able to engage with clients. In due course HHL plan to expand their software solution across the organisation, equipping all their healthcare professionals with tablet devices.

Kinross Group has operated in the digital space for more than 10 years and in that time, set a gold standard in the secure and swift flow of data. They work with public and private sector organisations in New Zealand and overseas.
Kinross Group Director, Ruth Bruce says, “We feel incredibly fortunate to be working so closely with HHL, a company whose values, integrity and pioneering spirit so closely reflect our own.”
