HealthShare – Midland DHB Shared Service Agency

To meet service and financial needs and Ministerial expectations the Midland Region DHBs recognised that there needs to be a structured and coordinated approach to the planning and delivery of services that would show benefits from a regional approach to delivery. To this end agreement was reached by the five Midland DHBs to initiate a Midland Regional Cooperation Project under the direction of the Midland Chairs and Chief Executives (CEs). Envisaged outcomes include:

*  Procurement
*  Information Systems
*  Finance
*  Legal and Regulatory
*  Workforce (Recruitment/Learning & Development/IR)
*  Media and Communications
*  Audit and Risk


Project Manager Erica Holtsbaum has been seconded from Lakes DHB to progress a plan for the cooperative activities.
