IT Innovators partnering with health providers for better outcomes

IT companies are supporting the New Zealand Health Strategy 2016 through working in partnership with health providers at many levels. A review of New Zealand’s health Tech companies explored the economic performance, R&D dynamics generating insights into how these partnerships are achieving better outcomes for the health system and New Zealand patients. Kevin will discuss some of the exciting work that companies are doing and how this promising New Zealand industry is growing.




Kevin Sheehy has worked across many of the disciplines involved in bringing a health technology to market, from treating patients, through regulatory approvals, clinical trials and commercial roles.

He is currently consulting on projects bringing various medical devices and health related IT products to market. One of his areas of focus is incorporating health economics requirements into the product development cycle as companies are increasingly needing to demonstrate the value of their medical innovation to funders. He has practiced as a GP in South Africa and worked in various clinical placements in UK hospitals, on moving out of clinical practice he has worked at Medsafe on pharmaceutical regulation and post-market surveillance. During 5 years working for the pharmaceutical industry and leading Medicines New Zealand he developed a deep knowledge of market access strategy and is well placed to help companies get their innovations through the multiple obstacles to ultimately benefit the patient locally and internationally.

Kevin is the author of the Health Tech Review 2016, which aims to identify the dynamics of the Health Tech opportunity for New Zealand as well as how Government and Industry can best approach the industry’s challenges.
