The judges were particularly impressed with the strength of the Orion business model is and its ability to secure long-term annuity contracts and add further value through consulting services, tailoring Orion Health solutions to specific customer requirements.

Of special interest to the judges was Orion Health’s outstanding and consistent track-record in Corporate Social responsibility, in particular a strategic and close working relationship with the Auckland University School of Medicine”.
