One of the base codes of Spark Health’s DNA is innovation. Its mission is to bring the future faster to the New Zealand health sector by leveraging the power of digital technologies. This is brought to life through fostering the country’s talented clinicians and technologists to implement their ideas for how healthcare should look in the future, while providing real outcomes for New Zealanders.
The Spark Health Whanau don’t just talk about their mission, they want to make a real difference by producing tangible results. That’s why they collaborated with the National Institute of Health Innovation (NIHI) and Amazon (AWS) to create the Spark Health Digital Innovations Programme, funding five digital innovation projects to the tune of $50,000 each across the NZ health sector. In addition to the funding, the Spark Health also provides mentoring and technology advice to the five projects.
