Delivering Benefits

|  case studies

  • Information Services - National Infrastructure Platform


    With 40 data centres working in isolation at local and regional levels, and $60 - 70 million being spent every year on IT infrastructure, DHBs stand to benefit from a National Infrastructure Platform.

  • Insurance


    DHBs collectively have assets worth about $5 billion, which need to be insured against a range of risks including fire and natural disasters. To replace them at current prices would cost about $12.4 billion.

  • Banking Services


    When all DHBs moved to one bank, they reduced administration costs and collectively gain $4 million a year through lower fees and higher interest payments. Money they can now invest in frontline healthcare.
