District Digital Health Strategy ImageWhat is Digital Health?

“Digital health is the use of digital technologies and accessible data, and the associated cultural change it induces, to help New Zealanders manage their health and wellbeing and transform the nature of healthcare delivery” – Ministry of Health.

Developing the District Digital Health Vision and Strategy

It is with anticipation that the Consumer and Clinical Councils, Central PHO and MidCentral DHB invite you to contribute to the development a five-year District Digital Health Vision and Strategy. Over the next three months the strategy and its vision will evolve in collaboration with the community.
The District Digital Health Vision and Strategy will provide a practical pathway to assist a major change to the way we deliver health and social services across the MidCentral District.
The District Digital Health Vision and Strategy will focus on;
  • Achieving Quality and Excellence by design
  • Connecting and transforming primary, community and specialist care
  • Partnering with people and Whānau to support health and wellbeing
  • Achieving equity of outcomes across communities

Getting Involved

It’s an exciting time for the evolution of the enablers that will deliver health and social services in our district. Our new Vision and Strategy will guide us over the next five years on our Digital Health journey. Over the next two months, the Digital Health Vision and Strategy project team will reach out to key system participants across the district for help to develop this important piece of work.

To give system participants some insight into digital health and why we are developing this vision and strategy, we will be holding a Regional Hui in late May and a series of drop in workshops in June 2018. For more information or to register for the Hui, please  register online: or contact:
