Health Information Standards Organisation (HISO) New Zealand's Interoperability Reference Architecture is underpinned by openEHR. One of the building blocks of this national standard (HISO 10040.2 Exchange Content Model) describes a uniform content model for the purpose of health information exchange. The Content Model follows CCR in its top level headings and comprises archetypes from various sources including Nehta and openEHR CKM as well as newly modelled ones. It is intended not to establish own CKM but share Australian CKM as the healthcare systems and cultures are very similar.
