The Ministry of Health is funding telehealth initiatives that engage people with primary and community healthcare services. The Ministry received 105 applications for funding and Nurse Maude is proud to be one of the 19 successful organisations.
Our project, Hauora Tūhono (Connected Health), focusses on Māori and Pasifika older people with chronic conditions who would benefit from being more engaged with health services. Nurse Maude provides, at no cost to the participant, a blue tooth enabled tablet with health monitoring tools e.g., a thermometer, blood pressure monitor and scales for conditions such as heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
A research nurse will be working with our partner organisations, Te Puawaitanga and Tangata Atumotu Trusts to recruit people into the trial and support them to use the tablet. Participants will be encouraged to connect with general practice, other relevant providers, and their whānau.
The trial aims to improve people’s health and wellbeing through increasing their involvement with primary and community healthcare services. By understanding how people feel about using a tablet and monitoring their health conditions with telehealth, we will be able to evaluate whether this type of service could be rolled out nationally.
The tablets used in this trial are provided by Spritely, a New Zealand company, who have designed the tablets specifically for and with Seniors. Nurse Maude is excited to be working with this innovative company on such an important trial.
We look forward to keeping you updated as the project progresses.

Supporting us when banks go cheque free
You probably already know that from the end of May almost all banks will no longer be accepting cheques. If you support our work through a donation, you can continue doing so – just a little differently – and your bank will help you do it.
Nurse Maude has always relied heavily on your generosity so we can provide palliative care and support in the Nurse Maude Hospice free of charge to our patients and their families so, at the most vulnerable and stressful time of their lives, they don’t have to worry about how they are going to pay for the care they need. For their sake, we hope you choose to continue to donate through…
- Internet banking
- Using the DONATE button on our website
- Setting up a regular donation by Automatic Payment. Our bank account number is 02 0865 0057217 03
You can call us on 375 4200 and ask for accounts payable or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you find the best way to support us.
On behalf of all those we nurse and support at the end of their life, our thanks for everything you do.
