    Why the ministry supports an ict proposal2

    Why the Ministry supports an ICT Proposal

    • In July 2008 the Ministry of Health undertook an ICT review

    • Selected group of Maori and Pacific providers.

    • Purpose: analyse Maori and Pacific Health providers’ abilities to purchase, manage, and future proof their IT infrastructure.

    • Serious inadequacies in ICT infrastructure across Maori and Pacific providers in primary care.

    • Only 6/38 providers interviewed had an ICT infrastructure that is robust and meets health IT standards.


    Why the ministry supports an ict proposal3

    Why the Ministry supports an ICT Proposal

    • Important review findings:

      • In general, providers do not know what IT solutions are available;

      • Vendor driven – so inability of providers to ensure/realise their systems are compatible with other health system platforms and with other health providers;

      • The overall set up of provider server rooms is consistently inadequate and does not meet industry standards; and

      • Cost (set-up and ongoing) is a concern for all small health service providers


    Why the ministry supports an ict proposal4

    Why the Ministry supports an ICT Proposal

    • Importance of focusing on ICT issues

      • To address findings from ICT review and PPWDF review (2009)

      • To support the Government’s vision for the achievement of a strong and vibrant patient-centred health system over the next five years in primary health care.

      • To enable Pacific health service providers to continue to play a key role in contributing to the Government’s vision for primary health care.


    Rfp process

    RFP Process

    • April 2010

    • The Ministry sought IT specialists in health, to deliver an IT solution targeting selected Pacific health service providers in the Auckland, Wellington and Canterbury regions.

    • 8 providers submitted proposals for the RFP process

    • Successful provider was ASPX-Group, now know as Cloud Region

    • The ‘Cloud system’ is a web-based server that allows health providers access to their information outside of the office.

    • 3 Pacific providers in Christchurch utilise the Cloud system


    Case study christchurch earthquake

    Case Study – Christchurch Earthquake

    Three locally governed and managed Pacific services in CHC:

    - Pacific Trust Canterbury

    - Tangata Atumotu Trust

    - Pacific Island Evaluation Inc.

    • September 2010 earthquake - closed area around the premises of three of the providers and disrupting service delivery.

    • They were regaining some equilibrium when a second earthquake struck on February 22, 2011. Effect was more devastating.

    • Three months later the work premises are still within the cordoned area with no expectation of return.


    Case study christchurch earthquake1

    Case Study – Christchurch Earthquake

    • ICT

      • To assist providers rebuild their services, the Earthquake Recovery fund enabled support for IT infrastructure such as:

        • - electricity

        • - purchase of laptops

        • - other

      • Benefits: – The server being web-based therefore minimised the effect on service delivery for Pacific providers. These Pacific providers continued service delivery.
