The Ministry of Health, along with the Bay of Plenty, MidCentral, Taranaki, Lakes, Whanganui, Nelson Marlborough and Southern DHBs have joined the four Northern Region DHBs (Northland, Auckland, Waitemata and Counties Manukau) by entering into agreements for the National Infrastructure Platform (NIP) provided by IBM.

The NIP initiative, developed by Health Benefits Limited (HBL), will utilise IBM’s cloud-based IT infrastructure services, developed specifically for government. The Platform will increase security, reliability, service levels and reduce the risk of critical outages.
