Midland DHBs looking to procure a multi-specialty Clinical Pathway Information System

Waikato District Health Board has published a Call for Registration of Expression of Interest for a Midland Regional Multi-Specialty Clinical Pathway Information System.


The ROI document says Midland DHBs do not have a consistent set of cancer clinical care systems, registries or research databases to manage, support and measure the service provision for the bowel and lung cancer pathways.


“Safe and efficient cancer care relies on clinical quality data from individual healthcare encounters which enable risk adjusted outcomes to be used to drive evidence-based quality improvement,” it says.


“The lack of consistency limits our capability to collect, measure and monitor the degree to which cancer health care benefits the patient and how closely that care aligns with evidence-based practice.


“There is an opportunity to better support the cancer tumour stream pathways by implementing a regional multi-specialty clinical pathway information system to capture/record specific clinical data which can also be used for clinical audit and research.


“We are seeking to identify a regional multi-specialty clinical pathway information system to be used initially for bowel and lung cancer tumour streams that is able (where possible integrated with source systems) to capture and/or record specified clinical data. We want to reduce the administrative burden of supporting cancer tumour stream pathways and release time to care for clinicians and nurses,” the document says.


This system will provide data for clinical audit, research, service improvement and enable measurement of:

  • clinical quality indicators
  • clinical outcomes and equity of access
  • quality and efficiency of services
  • reporting for national and/or bi-national audits
  • reporting against national standards of service provision (tumour standards).

The vision for the solution is to standardise, digitise and make accessible cancer data and deliver improved quality of clinical and service delivery information relevant to the cancer pathway across the Midland region.


Responses are due by 5pm on 7 June.
