Collaboration and Development

At the heart of our work is the development, implementation and maintenance of a cross-functional collaboration strategy and framework for our key stakeholders, including District Health Boards, the Ministry of Health, Primary Health Organisations and other health agencies.

The purpose of the strategy and framework is to support and encourage the health sector to team up with other relevant agencies to maximise opportunities to increase innovation, productivity and quality, in turn delivering better health and wellbeing outcomes for New Zealanders.
