All RAPHS service development and delivery activity is in support of achievement of the Health Quality and Safety Commission's Triple Aim:
All RAPHS activity is underpinned by the following principles:
RAPHS will provide services that ensure equity, access and support to all patients regardless of the provider they enroll with, their ethnicity or any other demographic variable. To achieve this, targeted support for priority population demographics (e.g. high needs patient) will often be utilised.
RAPHS will provide and support efficient and effective clinical services delivery.
RAPHS activities will foster an environment of continuous quality improvement.
RAPHS services will advance the role of healthcare teams in the provision of health services, and will promote and support the interests of Maori, communities, consumers and health service providers through collaboration with stakeholders.
RAPHS will promote a high standard of professional ethics and a high standard of professional competence for providers through the support of continuing education programs.
Outcomes are a primary focus for RAPHS. RAPHS will demonstrate the highest standards of integrity and accountability in delivering services, and support contracted providers to comply with sector standards, health targets, and contractual obligations.
