About NZ Health Partnerships

There are increasing demands being placed on the health system, from an ageing population, the cost of new technologies and growth of long term conditions such as mental health issues and obesity. One way we can help mitigate rising costs is by facilitating greater collaboration amongst our shareholders. By thinking, acting and investing collaboratively, DHBs can achieve greater savings and realise greater value than they would by operating independently.

However, what we do is about more than cost reduction. While the organisation's primary focus is on administrative, support and procurement activities, most of our work has direct or indirect clinical benefits. Ultimately patient care is at the core of what we do.
