HealthShare has a five-member Board of Directors comprising the Chief Executive of each Te Manawa Taki District Health Board. Each DHB has an equal shareholding.
The Board of Directors has oversight of the strategic direction of HealthShare activities, including:
- activities that support future direction and change through the development of regional plans;
- facilitating the development of clinical service initiatives undertaken by regional clinical networks and action groups;
- key functions that support and enable change through the ongoing development of the region's workforce and information systems;
- back office service provision that can drive efficiencies at a regional level, alongside national back office shared services.
HealthShare’s Chief Executive is accountable to the Board, through the Chairman, for the management of HealthShare and day to day operations. The Board meets monthly to monitor performance.
HealthShare has multiple planning and reporting relationships within Te Manawa Taki and to national agencies.
HealthShare works closely with governance of the five Te Manawa Taki DHBs and provides secretariat services for monthly regional governance meetings, supports Te Manawa Taki All Boards Development Days, and facilitates engagement through project management support as required.
Te Manawa Taki DHBs' Chief Executives, Board Chairs and Board Members, and Iwi Relationship Boards are committed to He kapa kī tahi - a singular pursuit of Māori health equity.
