The Northland District Health Board (NDHB) IS department services multiple sites throughout Northland, including at Whangarei, Kaitaia, Kawakawa, Dargaville, Kaikohe and Kerikeri. This year will see a continuation of the upgrade of the DHB’s clinical systems that began last year, as well as upgrades to

security and storage infrastructure.

A refresh of clinical protocols on the DHB’s intranet, and implementation of a range of initiatives toward further integration of health information and information services across the Nortland district and the Northern region, will round out the key focus areas for 2010.

“The northern region information strategy RIS10-20 underpins the development of a person-centred model of care, and better, sooner, more convenient healthcare. The strategy, which has been endorsed by the four Northern Region District Health Boards, covers person-centred health information, population health

information, knowledge management, workforce information, business information and IT infrastructure and services,” explains Darren Manley, director information services for Northland DHB. “The DHB takes an integrated approach to planning to ensure resource and investment decisions are made wisely. We will progress our strategic priorities within the context of the RIS10-20 and the health sector reforms.”
