In 2019 a new Waitematā and Auckland District business unit Uri Ririki – Child Health Connection Centre was formed to house the National Immunisation Register (NIR) team. The Uri Ririki team works with health and social service providers to make sure tamariki (children) up to the age of six are connected with a provider of their choice and receive all of their health checks and immunisations on- time.

The challenge

The challenges faced by the unit included fragmented data sources obscuring a complete understanding of children’s milestones, difficulty in identifying children missing necessary health checks, managing incomplete medical records when a child does present with an illness, public health issues and the ongoing task of encouraging engagement in the Well Child Tamariki Ora program.
