What's the difference between transition and transformation? 

Last year, I shared information about the transitional state of HINZ. It was time to assess how HINZ was meeting the needs of its members. We had many discussions with our partners, the National Health IT Board, the Health IT Cluster and Health Informatics Association of Australia, to name a few. We reached out to a number of groups in the clinical, academic, commercial and administrative branches of the NZ health sector.  We conducted a member survey and finally, we did an audit of our internal systems and capabilities.

This helped us produce a vision of what HINZ needed to be. 2014 is a transformational year for HINZ.
