National Engineering Centre team grows at SimplHealth

This year is progressing well for SimplHealth with two new senior project managers coming on board as the company looks to expand its business at home and overseas.

Gray Wilkinson has joined from Western Australian software company Sunguard and Kawal Batra from New Zealand based company Intergen. Between them they have considerable international expertise in varied project management and business analyst roles; Gray has experience working in Asia and Australia, and Kawal in India and the UK.

CEO of SimplHealth Jodi Mitchell says building a team of international experts is a reflection of the growing activity in Health IT and the company’s long term vision for business in new markets.

“Information technology is becoming more important to healthcare in New Zealand. A service such as the NZ ePrescription Service is just one example of this and there are many other opportunities for technology to help provide better healthcare for patients, as well as deliver efficiencies and cost savings.

“Building a team of highly qualified experts in New Zealand, to grow SimplHealth as a specialist health IT provider internationally, is a vital part of our long term vision,” she says.

Gray Wilkinson and Kawal Batra join David Frazer who was appointed SimplHealth’s National Engineering Centre Manager late last year, after moving from US based F-Secure, a global specialist in anti-virus, cloud content and computer security software.

SimplHealth is the health IT company chosen by the National Health IT Board and the Ministry of Health to support the roll-out of the NZ ePrescription Service (NZePS). The company has also developed the eRx Script Exchange platform, Australia’s national ePrescription system, which has operated since 2007. This now also provides information for Australia’s national medication repository for the PCEHR (Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record).

SimplHealth is part of The Simpl Group, a New Zealand company, established in 1989, expert in delivering technology solutions that share information and support collaboration.
