James Allison recognised at NZ CIO50 Awards
Allison and his 360-strong team are working to improve the healthcare outcomes of 1.8 million people in the Northern Region through the digital transformation of the four Northern DHBs’ IT systems.
“We are all working together as a region towards a better, more efficient health system with lower cost of delivery and faster, more accurate and secure information at the point-of-care on any device, anywhere, anytime. That’s our aim,” Allison says.
The clinically-led approach is seeing the region’s DHBs collaborate more closely than ever to ensure future healthcare aspirations are met.
This is reflected in the Northern Region Long Term Investment Plan and the Northern Region Information Systems Strategic Plan – a 10 year strategy that will ultimately deliver a smart, sustainable, patient-centred and digitally-enabled healthcare system for the region and its people.
Allison refers to an old Māori proverb to help describe healthAlliance’s collaborative approach with the DHBs and primary healthcare providers in the region:
“Me mahi tahi tātau mō te oranga o te katoa – we must work together for the wellbeing of all.”
