PHO Services Agreement Amendment Protocol
DHBs and PHOs have entered into the PHO Services Agreement to enable the provision of primary health care services to enrolled populations and other eligible persons. DHBs and PHOs are also parties to Alliance Agreements that provide for certain health care services to be developed and delivered in accordance with decisions made by Alliance Leadership Teams.
These documents set the contractual foundation for a collaborative relationship between DHBs and PHOs to enable delivery of integrated healthcare services on a best for patient care and best for system basis. This partnership-based approach has patients at the centre, in which care is delivered closer to home by trusted, motivated health professionals working in an effective and efficient manner, and requires strong clinical leadership to succeed. This approach seeks to achieve improved health outcomes for all population groups.
