Since 2007, the Canterbury Health System has been redefining the future of healthcare, shaping support and services around consumers staying well and independent for longer at home and in the community.

The Customer

Technology has been key to this transformation. Orion Health and Canterbury DHB have been working closely through a long term strategic partnership that has aligned the organisations on goals, deliverables and future vision. The partnership employs a dedicated team model that allows for the rapid delivery and development of new software, which is enabling a more integrated, person-centric healthcare system.

The Challenge
Together the two organisations have implemented a number of revolutionary solutions in Canterbury, and through the South Island Alliance across the region. HealthOne, an Electronic Health Record that gathers clinical information from across care sectors to a secure data repository and gives clinicians the information they need to make more informed health decisions at the point of care, wherever that may be. Health Connect South, a revolutionary web-based electronic clinical record that provides a unified view of patient information in secondary care and is fully integrated with HealthOne. Shared Care Planning, consolidation of multiple technology solutions that enable the delivery of patient-centred care closer to home, and SI PICS, a comprehensive Patient Information System that streamlines the patient journey through the health system. These solutions deliver value and outcomes that make a lasting difference to the lives of all South Islanders and represent a significant stride towards achieving an integrated health system that puts the patient at the centre of care, saves time, resources and money, and delivers a world-class health experience.
