A collaboration with the Dept of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine at Auckland District Health Board and Precision Driven Health has developed the nzRISK tool - a pre-operative risk prediction tool that provides an estimate for the risk of death at one month, one and two years following surgery. It has been developed and validated for patients in New Zealand based on national observational data, and takes into account risks associated with the surgical procedure and some patient factors.

NZRISK is an unbiased, highly accurate risk prediction tool. As a clinician, NZRISK provides me with valuable insights to help me and my patients in the shared decision-making process before surgery.”
