The Health IT Cluster runs a series of seminars focusing on relevant areas of business capability.  In conjunction with Victoria University and Grow Wellington, we are hosting a seminar on the economics of health IT investment.  We have a secured an excellent group of experts and health system leaders to present, including: Graeme Osborne (National Health IT Board), Chris Nixon (NZIER), Jayden McRae (Compass Health), Thorsten Engel (Deloitte), David Graham (National Health Committee) and Dr Jackie Cumming and Dr Jaikishan Desai (Health Services Research Centre, VUW).

This seminar will be of particular interest to health care providers, health IT vendors, policy-makers, academics and researchers.
