Institute for Innovation and Improvement - i3

In April 2015, Waitemata DHB’s board approved the establishment of an Institute for Innovation and Improvement - i3 to help realise the board’s priorities of improving health outcomes and patient and whānau experience.

The Institute will bring together expertise in data analysis, population health, quality improvement, costing analysis, innovation, patient and whānau experience, leadership, digital communications, and evaluation, and this expertise will be used to support clinical teams in the design and implementation of new models of care and best practice care processes. The Institute will lead the DHB’s commitment to clinically-led care redesign and enhanced care management, and will build capability in the DHB to ensure that current and future health challenges can be met.
