Ashburton SLA key messages - February 2020

05 Mar, 2020 | Return|

The Ashburton Service Level Alliance (Ashburton SLA) is working towards ensuring the people of Ashburton have access to the most appropriate and sustainable health services. The role of the Ashburton SLA is to recommend how to best allocate health services funding in Ashburton and provide a platform for local healthcare providers and community leaders to lead the redesign of Ashburton’s health services.

Key messages 

1. The HealthOne team will commence a trial in March 2020 for a number of healthcare providers to have read only access to HealthOne. Coldstream Lifecare, an Aged Residential Care Facility in Ashburton have been included in the trial and will have the ability to view shared care plans, discharge summaries and medication information. This is a positive step forward for Aged Residential Care Facility being able to view important health information that will improve the quality of care for their residents.

2. Recruitment for a Partnership Community Worker (PCW) is underway and an appointment is expected in the very near future. This will provide addition navigation service resource into the Ashburton area. The joint PHO enrolment/transfer guidelines are being finalised along with the process for the AAU/Navigator/PCW initiative that is due to start in Ashburton Hospital. This initiative will support patients that would like to enrol in General Practice or would like help with navigation through health services.

3. Members of the Ashburton SLA visited Arowhenua marae on Sunday 9th February 2020. The members shared the Ashburton SLA’s current priorities and explored further opportunities to improve health services, specifically access and enrolment.
