Health topics Medicines Videos and apps
Health App News
The safety and security of personal information provided in apps has been in the news recently. Generally health apps are not covered by legal requirements to safeguard data privacy and security, so people need to take steps to protect their personal information when using mobile health apps.
New app reviews are being added to the Health App library on a regular basis. If there are any categories that you would like added to the health app library email sandra@healthnavigator.org.nz

How Health Navigator can help you 
Studies show learning is enhanced when patients are given quality written or online information to support their retention and understanding following a consultation or admission. The Health Navigator NZ website is designed to make this easy for your clinical teams to give patients and clients relevant NZ information and self-care resources. 

You can print out topic sheets, or jot down other topic suggestions on our wallet cards for patients to review at home. We also have posters and recently updated DLE rack cards that are ideal for outpatient waiting room
