As part of the Health System Reforms announced by Cabinet in March 2021, it was decided that ‘Localities’ will be a key feature of the future health system and provide a vehicle to embed a population health approach and to join up services to enable more seamless care, tailored to the needs of the local population.
This Request for Proposal (RFP) is an invitation to suitably qualified Respondents to submit a Proposal to partner with Health New Zealand (HNZ) and Māori Health Authority (MHA) in the development of a Learning & Insights Programme (the Programme) for the Locality Programme, focusing initially on the implementation of Locality Prototypes (the Prototypes).
The Prototypes will test and create exemplar models that inform national policy in how the locality approach can be applied consistently across the country to deliver equitable outcomes and wellbeing. This includes transformational co-commissioning and funding models between Health New Zealand and the Māori Health Authority, data and digital solutions and new pathways of care driving greater sector and intersectoral integrations. They will also provide clarity on what makes sense to be determined by the local context and environment and what locality provider networks will need in terms of management capacity and capability. The prototypes will be early adopters, but will quickly be followed by the rest of NZ. Hence the learning and insights programme should be scaled to obtain key metrics in additional localities as they come on.
Respondents with the capacity to provide either one or all:
Kaupapa Māori evaluation methodology
Pasifika evaluation methodology
Exploring the insight and experience of Māori, Pasifika and other communities in a culturally safe and appropriate manner
Experience in collective impact-based, action-orientated, or similar evaluation and monitoring methodology
Health economics / economic analysis for cost-benefit analysis
Health informatics / intelligence capability for the development of locality dashboards
