Using new electronic systems and tools health professionals are able to securely share and gather relevant patient information that will result in safer, better quality care.
Through the South Island Alliance, South Island DHBs have committed to taking a combined approach to delivering and improving information systems. The shared investment will avoid duplication of costs and wasted resources, while at the same time working collaboratively will mean a more efficient, safer transfer of patient information, and staff, between services around the region.
The South Island Alliance Information Services is working on a number of projects and programmes that will change the way future health services are delivered in the South Island, enabling better quality, more integrated care and improved safety for patients.
