NZ to go to tender for national oral health information system

The New Zealand Ministry of Health plans to issue a request for proposal towards the end of the year for a national oral health information system (OHIS), part of a larger program to build an electronic oral health record for children and adults receiving dental services from district health boards.

The Ministry released a request for information in April aimed at providers of clinical oral health software solutions that can support the delivery of community and hospital-based oral health services. Dental care is free for New Zealand kids until their 18th birthday, and is commonly provided through DHB-run community oral health services. DHBs also provide hospital-based dental services to children and adults.
