Transforming patient experience through shared care plans in Canterbury, NZ
Brought to you by HIC partner Orion Health

Since 2007, the Canterbury Health System has been redefining the future of healthcare, shaping services around keeping consumers well and independent for longer at home and in their community, with technology as an enabler.

One key element of this transformation is Canterbury’s delivery of Shared Care Planning, the goal of which is to enable people with complex health conditions to work together with a range of health providers to plan how their health care is delivered.

Shared Care Planning supports the delivery of patient-centred care to assist clinical teams in contributing to the patients’ shared care plans within the medical record. This is laying the foundation for a future in which care teams can collaboratively work with the patient to proactively manage their care.
