Strategic Approaches

The Board guides its decision making through applying a strategic approach, particularly because of the need tooperate within a financially constrained environment:

  • Substitute, rather than supplementary, services;
  • Upstream interventions, particularly selfmanagement strategies like exercise, diet and Whanau Ora;
  • Reduce health inequalities, by targeting those with the highest need;
  • Increase health gain per dollar spent;
  • Intersectoral collaboration and cooperation;
  • Evidence based decision-making;
  • Being prepared to change the paradigm of how we deliver services (the "who" and the" how") so that we design services that progress our strategic direction; and
  • Patient centred care.
