Indigenous contributions to governance in health informatics can be drawn from cultural concepts such as Katiakitanga, which implies guardianship, stewardship, governance and responsibility roles.
Kaitiakitanga acts as a guideline to address ongoing and complex issues such as collective ownership, the responsible publication of data, and whether benefits in health for Maori can be explicitly declared and met.
