NOTE ON 6.7.17

The webcast library is denying access to a few members (but not all). Our developer is investigating this glitch.

If your membership is current but you can't get access, please notify and we will give you another link for temporary access.

Q. What is a webcast?

A webcast shows you a video of the speaker and the presentation slides simultaneously, so you can see and hear what the conference audience does. It is easily viewable on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

You can use the webcast library search engine to find relevant topics without having to watch an entire session. When you click on the search result, you’ll be taken directly to the point in the presentation where the keyword was shown.

Q. I want to view the webcast library but the link has taken me to a username/password page. How do I get access?

Only 2016 HiNZ Conference delegates and HiNZ members, or those who have purchased a 'virtual registration' are allowed to access the webcast library. Or join HiNZ now to get access.

Q. How do login to the webcast library?

There are two ways you can login to the webcast library:

  1. If you are a HiNZ member then you should log in here:
  2. Conference delegates (who aren't HiNZ members) should log in here:

(The conference delegate login access is only valid during conference week). To view the webcast library after this you need to join HiNZ.

Q. What is my username and password?

On Monday 31 October 2016, an email was sent from to all conference delegates, and to all current HiNZ members, with their username/password and instructions on how to access the webcast library. Please check your spam folder if you didn't get this.

Q. I can't find the email with my username and password. How do I login?

Have you checked your junk mail folder? If you still can't find it here is what you do....

If you are a conference delegate please go to the registration desk during the conference and ask for your "conference delegate username and password" and they will give this to you.

If you are a HiNZ member, then enter your "HiNZ username / password" to access the webcast library. (If you can't remember your password, go to the HiNZ website login page, enter your email and ask the system to reset your password.)

If you have any difficulties logging in please email

Q. How long do I get access for?
  • HiNZ members get access to the webcast library up until the date their membership expires.
  • Conference delegates get 6 days access to the webcast library, from 1 November 2016 until midnight on Sunday 6 November 2016. To view the webcast library after this date you need to be a HiNZ member. Join HiNZ now.
Q. I'm having technical problems when viewing the webcasts.

If you are having problems viewing the webcast, please email the technical help desk at

Q. When are the 2016 conference sessions available?

The sessions taking place in the NZ 1 room are live-streamed during 1-3 November. All other sessions are available on-demand within 24 hours (except for workshops and a couple of sessions where the speaker has denied consent to be filmed).

To view the 2016 conference programme please go here.

If you have a specific query please email

Q. Which conferences can I access?

All four conferences are being filmed (except for workshops and a couple of sessions where the speaker has denied consent to be filmed). In the webcast library you can view the 2016 HiNZ Conference, Successes & Failures in Telehealth 2016, Global Telehealth 2016, and the NZ Nursing Informatics Conference 2016. HiNZ members can also view the 2015 HiNZ Conference and the 2015 Nursing Informatics Conference.

Q. What is the difference between the webcast library and a virtual registration?

Nothing. It means the same thing.

Q. I am a HiNZ member. Do I get a virtual registration?

Yes, that's right. All HiNZ members automatically get full access to all sessions in the conference webcast library (which is the same as a virtual registration) for the term of their membership. PLUS you also get other member benefits. What a great deal! If you aren't a HiNZ member - join HiNZ now.
