With a core focus on addressing cardiac needs in Canterbury, the team at Christchurch Heart Group is committed to providing its patients the best service possible.

Managing director, Dr Iain Melton, describes himself as an auto-electrician for the human heart – a specialist focused on addressing short-circuits within a body’s pump and then correcting them. Iain is just one of a team of cardiac specialists tending to a growing base of patients in the community.

An ageing population means health needs continue to increase which requires the Christchurch Heart Group team to adopt productivity enhancing technology.

Over the last seven years, the practice has more than doubled in size and systems put in place when it first began were no longer fit for purpose creating a need to spend more time dealing with IT issues rather than focusing on patient care.
