Software upgrade - May 2018

Internal user testing to begin (March 2018) 

As Easter approaches, we are loading the new interRAI software version onto the host servers and preparing Quality Assurance (QA) testing across both host sites.

The software itself was put through rigorous testing (including regression testing) and once loaded into the QA environments, internal user testing will then begin with access to the QA host sites for DHBs and their IT support teams to follow after that.

On 5 April, we will start emailing you each week with a timeline of milestones for all stakeholders to view, as well as highlighting the upcoming enhancements.

As a reminder; the upgrade is targeted to happen on the following dates:

  • Taranaki (Central) 18 May2018
  • Canterbury (Northern & Southern) 25May 2018

If you have any questions or feedback please feel free to send an email to interRAI (at)

Software upgrade schedule change

The next interRAI software upgrade is now scheduled for May 2018. Currently we are on track testing enhancements for this release. The time change will allow us to schedule resources so we can deliver a smooth transition to the next interRAI software version. Information on enhancements and timing will follow later in February 2018.

Software upgrade scheduled for April 2018 (May 2018)

Planning for the first of two interRAI Software upgrades is well underway. 
As in previous years the upgrade will be held with each host site completing the upgrade on alternative weekends.
This upgrade will have six new enhancements relating to assessments. All enhancements will be tested over the coming months to make sure we are ready by April.
Closer to the upgrade we will provide all relevant information about changes. So keep your eyes out over the coming months, especially on the interRAI website.
