Regional Digital Health Services providing benefits for patients

The Central Region’s Health Informatics Programme (RHIP) has become the Regional Digital Health Services (RDHS) as it moves from being a programme of work to business as usual.

The RDHS, which provides a platform for patient management and a range of applications such as a clinical portal, is operated by TAS on behalf of the Central Region’s six district health boards (Hawke’s Bay, MidCentral, Whanganui, Capital and Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa).

eHealthNews.nz interviewed Whanganui DHB chief executive and service lead Russell Simpson who said the benefits are that costs are reduced because it’s BAU.

“I see the value from the patient perspective that no matter where they go across the region, their information is accessible – and there are documented benefits for patient outcomes.”
