Deloitte is pleased to announce the appointment of Kate Reid as a Director for Digital Health, in its Consulting service line. She joins Deloitte today and is based in Auckland.

Ms Reid has been the General Manager of Orion Health in New Zealand since 2015 and she is the current chair of New Zealand Health IT (NZHIT).
