2 Regionalisation Midland Style By Kevin White

3 Regionalisation Definition: The process of dividing an area into smaller segments called regions. One of the more obvious examples of regionalization is the division of a nation into states or provinces. Businesses also use regionalization as a management tool and a way to make certain that needs unique to particular areas are met.

14 What Works? More and more doctors are working in multiple DHBs, this enables them to see images of one DHBs patient while being at another DHB. More and more doctors are working in multiple DHBs, this enables them to see images of one DHBs patient while being at another DHB. Dramatic decrease in repeat studies due to patient being imaged else where and images not being available. Dramatic decrease in repeat studies due to patient being imaged else where and images not being available.

15 What Works? Story Hawkes Bay had a very sick patient. No one in the lower North Island could help the patient. Images were transferred to the Midland PACS via the DICOM router. Within an hour an Interventionalist was viewing the images from home. A couple of hours later the patient was in a helicopter heading for Waikato Hospital. A few more hours later the patient is in the Interventional Suite having a life saving procedure. Patient went back to Hawkes Bay in a much better state. Hawkes Bay had a very sick patient.

16 What Works? Continued No matter what politics exist (Some will be mentioned shortly) the patient is who needs to benefit from the system. We have seen many examples each week of this system effecting patients in a positive way.

17 What Works? Continued Multiple PACS/RIS Administrators spread across a large area.

19 What Doesn’t Works? Continued Senior management not turning up to regional meetings. Senior management not turning up to regional meetings. The business in one DHB making a business decision that impacts all 3 DHBs. The business in one DHB making a business decision that impacts all 3 DHBs.
