As it executes a transformative vision embracing cloud and modern ways of working, Hauora Tairāwhiti has engaged Insight for guidance across a range of Microsoft 365 solutions and services, derisking the process and positioning the District Health Board for optimal value from its technology investments.
Tairāwhiti District Health Board, branded as Hauora Tairāwhiti, provides health services to a population of nearly 50,000 who live in the area from the East Cape in the north to the Wharerata ranges in the south.
The organisation, based at Gisborne Hospital in New Zealand’s easternmost city, is taking a multi-stage approach to its modernisation. Stage one saw Insight successfully delivering Hauora Tairāwhiti’s Microsoft Office 365 Foundations service, putting in place the corner stones to ensure the organisation is ready to transform onto a more modernised set of information systems.
Since then, the two organisations have been working on building out those foundations, with Insight and Hauora Tairāwhiti continuing to provide tangible – and highly visible – deliverables to the business.
It’s a process that has seen the projects to re-establish Hauora Tairāwhiti’s Staff Directory and commence delivery of Microsoft PowerApps and PowerBI services through to conclusion enabling a more intelligent, more responsive information systems toolset to support organisation’s needs.
With ageing infrastructure and services overdue for an upgrade in line with the recommendations of the New Zealand government which requires agencies to accelerate adoption of public cloud services in a balanced way, Hauora Tairāwhiti is steadily rolling out a raft of Microsoft solutions and services, the DHB’s Project Manager Natacha Blattes says.
