Plunket's electronic Health Record (ePHR) in the field

Families in Northland are the first in the country to experience the digital future of Plunket’s ‘Well Child Tamariki Ora’ health checks through the electronic Plunket Health Record – or ePHR.  Developed in partnership with Microsoft, Marker Metro and Koorb, the ePHR will help Plunket improve children’s health outcomes by giving families a more effective service. 

The introduction of the ePHR is about a future where frontline Plunket staff access, store and receive children’s health records digitally rather than in paper files. It will help Plunket improve children’s health outcomes by connecting families more quickly with the services they need, and by reducing administration to allow nurses more time to focus on care.

Plunket Nurse Carla Taylor talks here about how the new ePHR is already making a difference in her working day.
