Collective Action with Communities

Localities are considered as a community of interest used for the purposes of localising primary and community-based care.

The locality is intended to drive a focus on equity and priority populations based on the whānau needs and priorities of that community.

Collective action with communities creates an opportunity to foster integration or connected models of care and services to ensure people have greater choice over the services they access. It also provides a platform for health and wellbeing networks to be in the driving seat of design and implementation of localised initiatives.

It is vital that those with lived experiences within a community are part of the network and are provided with a platform to be heard. Networks or localities are supported by a Collective Impact approach that creates opportunities to understand what matters to whānau.

Bruce,

56 Male

While away on holiday, Bruce presented to A&E with stomach pain. When he returned to his hometown, he called his GP who ordered a colonoscopy and CT scan over the phone. Within 24 hours of having the tests done, Bruce was able to access his test results via ManageMyHealth.

“By giving us the information, it actually makes me really aware of my health. It’s like getting ownership of my own health.”

“We like to travel around in our caravan, so the app means we can be anywhere in NZ or Australia and still get the results from any procedures”
