Welcome to the Hive, New Zealand's Health Innovation Exchange. We're here to foster discussion and collaboration to promote innovation in New Zealand's health sector.
This Hive is also a Social eLearning network for healthcare students. We host private groups for a range of healthcare courses.
As well as learning in their own private groups, students can connect with health innovators on the network.
HISO 10041 is a developing HISO standard for structured clinical documents, based on HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA). Referrals and discharge summaries, for example, will have a canonical form as CDA documents, communicated via health information exchanges and regional clinical data repositories.
The first part of the specification is a building block describing structured…Continue
Two new HISO draft standards have been posted on the HISO website for public comment. These are both HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) based standards for information exchange.

The Health Sector Architects Group has today released the second part of our Reference Architecture for Interoperability. This part builds on the foundations of the earlier part, published last year, applying our ideas about repository-centred HIEs, HL7 CDA documents as a common currency of exchange, and having a consistent content model, to emerging new requirements in what we're calling…Continue
Great to see that HL7 NZ Chair, David Hay, was present at the first FHIR Connectathon held in Baltimore, USA, on Saturday 10th September...FHIR Connectathon Report.
I wonder if anyone is aware of standards for apps? I have just come across a simple health app for the iPhone which calculates medication dosage without any special algorithm (ie it uses the simple calculator function like body weight x micrograms). I want to know whether it will give the correct answer each time for different inputs. Hence my search for a standard that the app developer could/should have employed. App operability testing standards are emerging (eg Happtique…Continue
Here are the slides from my presentation at last week's HINZ conference Dissecting the Reference Architecture for Interoperability

Clothes based sensors to monitor physiological parameters during daily activities.
I am interested in the various concepts involved in BioSensors. Flexible clothes chip could be used to monitor patients like Monitoring of diabetic patients, Monitoring elderly candidates etc.
BIOTEX EU-funded project that aimed to develop textile sensors to measure physiological parameters and the chemical composition of body fluids, with a particular interest in sweat.

Haemophilia is a rare, yet widely dispersed condition, both in New Zealand  as well as other countries such as America. Due to the nature of this health issue, there are several challenges for the provision of healthcare services. Over the last decade, there has been an increased development in health information technologies, one in particular is a simple, yet comprehensive internet based monitoring and communication…Continue
Mobile Apps are great! The variety and the ideas. Everyone interested in technology either ask how these apps are created or thought about making their own apps or maybe someday make one.
If you open you're app store and type "health" you get a variety of things from drug monitors, quitting smoking, exercise apps (boxing, pilates, yoga, jogging etc), diet, pregnancy, fertility and the list just goes on.
What app did you like that is related to health and what did you like about…Continue
