IBM is implementing a new software platform for the New Zealand Ministry of Health that works to personalize patient health records throughout the country, Image and Data Manager reported Thursday.

The company’s Health Identity Programme is designed as an interoperable platform to provide district hospital boards, general practitioners and pharmacists with round-the-clock access to health records, according to the report.

“In the world of Big Data, accurate identification of each person receiving or providing healthcare services, as well as anyone accessing or using this information, is paramount for providing a smarter healthcare ecosystem,” said Eran Horovitz, IBM Australia and New Zealand solutions architect for the software group.

IBM also developed the new technology to integrate with New Zealand’s Healthcare Provider Index and National Health Index, a unique number given to residents who receive health services.
