New Zealand Electronic Health Record (EHR) Market Executive Summary

The New Zealand Electronic Health Record (EHR) market size was valued at $xx Bn in 2022 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of xx% from 2022 to 2030 and will reach $xx Bn in 2030. In New Zealand, healthcare expenditure is primarily financed through a publicly funded system, known as the New Zealand public healthcare system, or "NZPH." The NZPH is funded through general taxation, and provides a wide range of healthcare services, including primary care, hospital care, and prescription drugs, to all residents and citizens of New Zealand.

The total healthcare expenditure in New Zealand has been steadily increasing over the years, with the most recent data from 2019, showing that the country spent around NZD 18.8 Bn on healthcare, which is equivalent to about 8.9% of the country's GDP. The major contributors to the healthcare expenditure in New Zealand are hospital care, which accounts for around 42% of the total expenditure, primary care, which accounts for around 35%, and prescription drugs, which account for around 12%. Overall, the government is the largest payer of healthcare expenditure in New Zealand, accounting for around 84% of the total expenditure, followed by private health insurance, which accounts for around 8%, and out-of-pocket expenditure, which accounts for around 8%.

EMR facilitates clinicians' ability to make informed medical decisions. Additionally, EMR makes it possible for care providers to quickly gather, store, and retrieve patient medical information with the use of the hospital information system (HIS). Along with managing medical data, EMR supports workflow management, hospital order administration, and data security. The existing paper-based approach is inefficient, expensive to maintain, and wasteful. Contrarily, the benefits of EMR include collaboration, portability, and straightforward data recovery.

The New Zealand government has been promoting the use of EHRs as a way to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare services. The use of EHRs in New Zealand is primarily driven by the National Health IT Plan, which aims to implement a nationwide EHR system. The National Health IT Plan includes several initiatives to promote the use of EHRs, such as the implementation of a shared care record, which allows healthcare providers to access a patient's health information from multiple sources, and the development of a national EHR system, which will allow healthcare providers to access a patient's health information from any location. Currently, most primary care providers in New Zealand use EHRs, and the government is working towards making EHRs available in all secondary care providers too. The use of EHRs in New Zealand is expected to increase in the future, as the government continues to invest in the development and implementation of EHR systems.
