Health Information Strategy

Hauora Taranaki PHO wanted to progress a number of health information initiatives but were not sure of the best approach.

I met with them to look at their requirements, understand the environment in which they operate, and made recommendations in the areas of Governance, Architecture, and Projects.

Issues addressed include:

  • patient and provider privacy
  • information sharing between clinicians
  • district wide alignment of I.T. initiatives
  • population health
  • primary care engagement
  • systematic approaches to programmes
  • effective use of technology
  • hosted practice management system technology
  • claims processing
  • electronic referrals (e-referrals).
