Great news!

This is NZHIT’s first in-person networking event since before lockdown and we are also pleased to offer the option of joining virtually via Teams if you’re not able to physically attend on the night.

NZ Health IT (NZHIT) and Digital Identity NZ (DINZ) have partnered to provide members, stakeholders and policymakers the opportunity to understand the growing importance, challenges and potential associated with digital identity and New Zealand’s health, disability and social sectors.
