Report on the performance of general practices in Whānau Ora collectives as at June 2014

29 Sep 2014
Description

Examines the performance of general practices in Whānau Ora collectives – using results from the software package HealthStat, which collects an anonymous summary of patient health information from general practices in Whānau Ora collectives.

Background

Whānau Ora is an inclusive interagency approach to providing health and social services to build the capacity of all New Zealand families in need. It empowers whānau as a whole rather than focusing separately on individual family members and the challenges they face in isolation.

This report focuses on the performance of general practices in Whānau Ora collectives – using results from the software package HealthStat, which collects an anonymous summary of patient health information from general practices in Whānau Ora collectives. Although not all Whānau Ora collectives include general practice providers, the data collected for this report can help highlight any changes in performance over time for health providers in the collectives.

This report includes results for 11 of the 12 HealthStat indicators1 selected by representatives from the Ministry of Health, Te Puni Kōkiri and Tumu Whakarae (the National Reference Group of Māori Health Strategy Managers within DHBs). The indicators were chosen as a framework for analysis because they link to major causes of morbidity and mortality for Māori and support the Whānau Ora Outcomes Framework developed by Te Puni Kōkiri.

The Ministry reports on the Whānau Ora sample every three months.
