The Ministry has been very conscious of the privacy issues facing responsible authorities in the development of the HPI.
Each practitioner’s Responsible Authority (the organisation with which you must register in order to practice) will inform you (and may have already done so) of its intention to supply information from its register to the Ministry of Health for the purposes of the HPI.
Practitioners the Health Provider Index (HPI) holds information on
- dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists, and dental technologists
- medical laboratory scientists and technicians
- medical radiation technologists
- medical practitioners
- occupational therapists
- optometrists and dispensing opticians
