Counties Manukau District Health Board (CM Health) is developing a new system of care for primary and community services to support people and whaanau living with Long-Term Conditions (LTCs). This system of care will be co-designed with service users, their whaanau and delivered in partnership between primary and community sector, and the District Health Board (DHB).
The driver for this change is the need to do more to meet the needs of our whaanau with Long-Term Conditions. We need to ensure equity for our population, with people supported to live longer, healthier lives. Our communities have told us that we need to do more and that we need to do things differently; this message has been strongly echoed by the findings and recommendations recently produced in the LTC Discovery Phase Report (May 2019).
Te Ranga Ora speaks of a group of people that pursue the greater aspects of wellness. Those that have long-enduring illness yet seek the greater things in life to assist them with their journey to wellness and/or assist them with managing their illnesses. This restores mana and rangatiratanga to their lives.
Te Ranga Ora will see the development of comprehensive, culturally-capable services delivered across the Counties Manukau rohe. The aim is for a system of care that will enable people in our communities to access a responsive, integrated range of health and social services close to their homes and their whaanau. People will see their culture and what matters to them reflected in the care and support that they receive. The target population is Maaori and Pacific People and people living in Quintile 5 areas with two or more long-term conditions. Long-Term Conditions, to start, are diabetes, gout, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease (not being dialysed), heart failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma (requiring hospitalisation), atrial fibrillation, and bronchiectasis.
We are looking for proposals from a broad range of community-connected, culturally-capable, passionate and enterprising provider organisations of primary and community care; provider organisations who put service users and their whaanau at the centre, and who have manaakitanga at the heart of everything that they do. We are looking for these provider organisations to establish themselves as prototype collectives to co-design and plan with us new models of care for the target population.
