Regional information Systems

  • To build regional IS capability through the implementation of the Regional Information Services Plan

Midland region operates a coordinated services model for IS delivery.  Regional IS functions within HealthShare are responsible for regional strategic alignment of information services across the shareholding DHBs and facilitating delivery of the Regional IS Plan. Each DHB continues to run its own IS function led by a DHB CIO. 

 Regional IS functions drive standardisation and robust change across all regional IS programmes and initiatives. They create the environment within which regional programmes and initiatives are successful.  Regional IS services are delivered from a ‘lead DHB’ with regional governance oversight.

 As implementation of the Regional IS Plan progresses, and regional IS services are created, there may be a need for further regional IS functions to be created within HealthShare. This will utilise the capability and expertise across the region. The required resources and structures will be defined in concert with the needs of the region under the guidance of the Regional IS functions and DHB CIOs.
