We’re working in new ways to ensure injured Māori have greater access to services, improved experiences of ACC care, and better health outcomes. We want to provide whānau with a choice of services that deliver culturally appropriate care and uphold our obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Starting in 2021, in partnership with Māori, we’re developing a new ACC pathway – Kaupapa Māori Health Services. These services will be designed by Māori, principally for Māori, but available to all New Zealanders, and will sit alongside ACC’s existing health services.
We’ll be developing these services regionally, in 12 rohe across the motu (country). We are establishing a panel of suppliers through four separate procurement tranches. The panel will work with us, iwi, ACC clients and whānau to design and plan how we operationalise these services. Each service will be independently designed and delivered by local suppliers. The order of tranches is available on our website.
The first services to be designed will be for clients with a complex and high level of need, including those with serious injuries and sensitive claims. Later, we’ll consider services for other injury types.
He aha e kimihia nei? What are we looking for?
We want to work with kaupapa Māori suppliers who can demonstrate social connectedness to the hapū/iwi of the community they serve. Suppliers must embrace ngā kaupapa tuku iho (values gifted by tupuna Māori) and demonstrate proven experience in delivering successful and whānau-centric health services. They must be recognised for their mātauranga, mana, capability, experience, and infrastructure to deliver kaupapa Māori services.
We define kaupapa Māori services as: indigenous, localised, whānau-centred solutions designed by Māori, with Māori, underpinned by tikanga and delivered by suppliers who identify as Māori, primarily for Māori, but available to all.
