Midland Governance

One Region


The Midland Clinical Portal is a regionally-focussed project that is governed through an integrated structure.

Collectively our governance bodies are responsible for the strategic direction of our project as well as play an active role in driving, implementing and reinforcing a borderless and patient-centred health system.

CEO Governance Group

Made up of the Chief Executives from each of the five Te Manawa Taki DHBs, the CEOGG monitors the performance of the programme and are an escalation point if required.

Three DHB Governance Group

The three DHBs, Bay of Plenty, Lakes and Hauora Tairāwhiti, that are utilising the full read/write version of MCP are represented on the Three DHB Governance Group. This group is responsible for reviewing project progress and interim results on a frequent, scheduled cycle. The three DHB Governance Group also takes responsibility for delivery of the full read/write system and ensuring alignment with the overall strategic vision and delivery timeframes.

Regional ICT Governance Group

The Regional ICT Governance Group includes representation from all five Te Manawa Taki DHBs who are all utilising the read only version of MCP and who will provide write access either via interoperability methods or via the full read/write version of MCP. This group provides input to matters relating to the read only version of MCP and potential future enhancements that relate to the entire region such and Medicines Management.

The Midland Clinical Portal has always been clinician-led and our overwhelming goal is to make it easier for all clinical staff to do their jobs and to support them by giving them the information and tools to do the right thing for their patients, at the right time”
