SmartHealth includes HealthTap, a free online platform and mobile app which connects you with a range of health services using your smart phone, tablet device or home computer.
SmartHealth was previously known as the Virtual DHB.
Signing up is easy
SmartHealth is available to everyone covered by Waikato DHB services.
Fill in the online form, take a ‘selfie’ and a photo of your photo ID then attach them to the form. Once your ID has been verified you will receive an email inviting you to set up your account. This typically takes one business day.
Tip: To ensure you receive the New Zealand version of the HealthTap app, wait for your invitation email before you download the app.
You can also sign up by visiting a Waikato DHB campus (Hamilton, Thames, Te Kuiti, Tokoroa and Taumarunui) with your photo ID.
* Usual charges will apply for people receiving services from General Practices through SmartHealth.
