Digital Care Record

New Zealand’s platform for child milestone tracking

Improving health outcomes for all tamariki

Orion Health’s National Child Health Information Platform (NCHIP) is a digital health solution that collates siloed health information into a single integrated dataset. 

Ensuring all tamariki are known to the system

In New Zealand, tamariki from birth to six years old are entitled to universal health checks that monitor 30 key milestones, including a metabolic screening, well child tamariki ora checks, immunisations, oral health checks, vision and hearing, early childhood education enrolment and a B4 school check.  The milestones are measured and tracked by many different organisations that often cannot easily capture and share information. 

Our cloud-first NCHIP platform enables the automatic enrollment of all children into the platform via a Maternity File or National Health Index (NHI) feed, which creates a single longitudinal record that follows each child regardless of their location. This makes it easier to identify and follow up tamariki without a general practitioner or Well Child Tamariki Ora provider, and those tamariki missing milestone checks. 

NCHIP helps mitigate data gaps and allows providers to get a clear view of a child’s entire history at one glance. Not only does NCHIP aid in early interventions, but it supports equitable health outcomes by ensuring every child has the opportunity to receive universal health services, and that the most vulnerable children are prioritised. 

Why you’ll love our tech

Our technology helps ensure every child is offered universal health services and has relationships with key providers.

One single record for each child

Offers a single comprehensive view across all of a child’s milestones and services, enabling early detection of care gaps, and supporting the sharing of relevant information at key transition points between providers.

Greater transparency and improved targeting

Increased information-sharing between service providers allows for improved targeting and increased primary care enrollment rates and access to services.

Privacy and security by design

Privacy and security are embedded into the platform, which protects the appropriate sharing of information between providers using Role-Based Access Control (RBAC).

Automatic enrolment of children into the platform

All children are enrolled in the NCHIP platform via the Maternity File or National Health Index (NHI) feed, making it simple to identify and connect with children who are missing a GP or a Well Child Provider.

Easily track and support vulnerable groups

Enables service to better track, reach and support vulnerable groups, to improve access to and uptake of the full package of universal health services. Simplifies the process for applying consistent business logic for generating “high priority” children lists.

Regional consistency and inter-regional collaboration

Cloud-first platform capable of handling the data for all children in New Zealand; allowing child health programme-providers the ability to use a consistent tool. Inter-regional collaboration to track the movement of children and families back and forth between regions is made simple.
