Meet the Game Changer

Introducing the first and only end-to-end SNOMED and FHIR driven digital ACC-45 and invoicing App available in New Zealand.


Co-Designed and Created by Clinicians and Patients

We have designed our services to support the Ministry of Health’s vision for “Data, digital services and technology to power the health and wellbeing of New Zealanders”. To fullfill that vision, Cure8Health apps help move from episodic model of care to a wellbeing model by engaging patients and obtaining explicit permission to use their data to improve their health outcomes.


Capturing patient data has never been easier

Cure8Health apps are designed for Allied Health and District Health Boards in New Zealand that want to adopt SNOMED and FHIR data standards with “keyboard and mobile ready” apps that immediately improve productivity, reduce errors and increase patient satisfaction and equity.

Cure8 Health Products

Digital ACC-45 Injury Claims and Invoices: Our first product is also a first for New Zealand - an Accident Compensation Corporation approved ACC-45 patient injury claim submission and clinic invoices for patient accident claims that is end-to-end digital.

Reduce errors, save time, free up staff and engage with happier patients.

Patients can submit their claim for approval digitally – even on the way to present for an accident.

No more triplicate forms. No more cross checking of data. No more manual transcription.

Begin to measure data and outcomes. Reduce missed claims revenue.

Patients get reimbursed more quickly and can concentrate on treatment.

No more patients or data points falling through cracks in the system.

Medical and IT professionals dedicated to transforming digital health standards.

Founder and Product Innovation Lead

Roheeni is an experienced IT Consultant with a background in Software Implementations, Business Analysis, Project Management and Training. Having been exposed to the lack of a personal health record and the cumbersome processes within the Allied Health Sector, Roheeni experienced the gaps within the New Zealand Health System. She founded Cure8Health and had the vision to use SNOMED and FHIR before they became the clear standards for New Zealand. After creating a patient centric solution with a strong SNOMED integration on a FHIR driven platform, she then joined forces with Dr Matthew Valentine to enhance the platform with a suite of innovative apps. This then led to joining forces with The Sovereignty Network where she now leads the development of ongoing Product Innovations
