Board Member (Elected)
Vidhya believes that technology in the hands of our consumers, enabling self-direction and simplifying access and choice is not just the way of the future, but needs to be our NOW! The challenges of Covid-19 and the lockdown has given us the much-needed impetus to quickly move forward in this direction. We, NZ Health IT are now at an enviable position of being able to maximise on the new norm that we have embraced and lead the way as an innovative health system in the world. Successful digital solutions rely on well-orchestrated transformation of people and processes that underpin them, and this requires collaboration and strong partnerships based on mutual trust and respect and with a common focus of better health and wellbeing outcomes for all New Zealanders. Throughout her tenure in the NZ Health space, Vidhya has been fortunate enough to work across public and private sectors spanning secondary, primary care and community care organisations which gives her a first-hand appreciation of the spectrum of challenges and therefore the opportunities that exist. Vidhya is passionate about Health IT and the use of technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness of health care delivery with a focus on overall health and wellbeing outcomes. She brings extensive experience in growing organisations having been part of the establishment of Whanau Tahi and now in her role at Mycare. Vidhya has a strong belief in the value of collaboration and partnership and wants to work with NZHIT members in shaping and influencing the NZ digital health journey. Her real-life experiences from the social and community perspective are extensive and Vidhya would love to work with the wider NZHIT network to make a difference collaboratively.
