Making a difference in health service delivery across the Te Manawa Taki (Midland) region
By working together at a regional level, District Health Boards are able to make the best use of available resources, strengthen clinical and financial sustainability and increase access to services.
HealthShare produces the Midland Regional Services Plan annually on behalf of the Midland District Health Boards (Bay of Plenty, Lakes, Hauora Tairāwhiti, Taranaki and Waikato). The Midland Regional Services Plan details national and local priorities in the Te Manawa Taki region, setting out the region’s collaborative efforts to support the planning, funding and implementation of health services at a regional and sub-regional level. The Midland Regional Services Plan has a specific focus on reducing service vulnerability and costs, and improving the quality of care to people within the Te Manawa Taki region.
HealthShare plays a key role in developing and implementing health services plans, models of care and continuous quality improvement work across the region. HealthShare planning, project management, coordination and facilitation skills are applied across a range of clinical networks, action groups, forums and projects.
The Te Manawa Taki region is committed to realising its two regionally-agreed strategic outcomes:
- Improve the health of the Midland populations.
- Achieve health equity.
The direction of the Te Manawa Taki region is also informed and supported by its six regional strategic objectives:
