New Zealand Health Technology Excellence - Delivered to the World

New Zealand Health Technology Excellence - Delivered to the World
The health system in New Zealand is based on the fundamental philosophy that healthcare should be provided to those who need it, when they need it. With a strong focus on primary care, New Zealand's health sector is internationally recognised as a provider of high quality, trusted services that are delivered cost-effectively.

New Zealand is a nation of four million people spread across two main islands. The country's small size and dispersed population constrains levels of GDP per capita and drives the need for cost effectiveness in its health services. Similarly, a tendency for New Zealanders to travel and work overseas presents workforce challenges, resulting in labour-efficiency.

New Zealand's size and geographical remoteness encourage innovation and fresh approaches to deliver smart and practical medical technology solutions that address today's needs. This is supported by a collaborative approach between medical technology companies and the New Zealand health sector. There is a rich cross-fertilisation between surgeons, clinicians and the commercial sector which results in affordable and user-focused health technologies.
