HISO is supporting the Ministry of Health’s BreastScreen Aotearoa (BSA) programme in the development of a data standard for breast screening.


The BSA programme will develop and implement a new IT system, which aims to improve the participation of women in the priority population and future proof the system.


The existing BSA participant management and radiology information system will be replaced by a new solution that will support the identification, invitation and tracking of all eligible women, through the pathway and the collection of screening, assessment and treatment data including radiology, histopathology, surgical and oncology data.


The standard is designed to ensure that information for the BSA programme is submitted in a consistent manner for operational, reporting and monitoring purposes.
