Board Chair (Elected)
Kate is a global health-care business leader with over 20 years of experience in delivering transforming consumer behavioural change programmes, creative marketing and technology enabled healthcare solutions. She is passionate about improving the health of a population by providing optimal personalised care for each and every individual. Kate believes that effecting sustained behavioural change relies on holistically managing all aspects of a person’s world not just their physical health. To do this effectively requires cross sector collaboration and partnership and a longer-term view of managing people’s overall health and wellbeing. This partnership focus interfaces well with Kate's recent appointment as Director of Digital Health at Deloitte NZ and her previous role as Orion Health’s General Manager for New Zealand from Dec 2015 to October 2018 where she worked on establishing a growing partner community unifying New Zealand’s health information and technology capabilities (NZ Health Inc.). Kate continues to drive towards a more integrated and collaborative landscape for better health outcomes for New Zealanders. Kate was originally elected to the NZHIT Board in 2014 and has recently been re-elected at the AGM held in November 2018.
