Clinicians' Challenge 2014

Health professionals with an innovative idea for an IT solution to improve health services are invited to enter the annual Clinicians’ Challenge.

The 2014 finallists are:

Dr Allister Williams, a consultant physician and nephrologist from Taranaki DHB. Dr Williams proposed MyKidneys, a web-based smartphone app to give people with chronic kidney disease the advice and support they need to participate in their own care.

Dr Tom Morton, an emergency physician at Nelson Marlborough DHB. Dr Morton’s entry was for Emergency Department at a Glance, an information system that displays data for managing patients’ journey through an emergency department.

Dr John Garrett, a paediatrician for Canterbury DHB and West Coast DHB. Dr Garrett proposed a tool to electronically record information on clinical consultations about sick children or newborn babies.


The winner, announced at the HiNZ gala dinner, was Dr Tom Morton.
