​Vodafone NZ seals multi-million dollar mobile deal with healthAlliance

Northern Region DHBs sign significant mobile deal with telco, spanning mobile, voice and data services.

Vodafone has signed a multi-million dollar contract with healthAlliance on behalf of the four Northern Region DHBs, billed as one of the biggest mobile deals in New Zealand.

Terms of the lucrative deal covers mobile, voice and data services for Northland, Waitemata, Auckland, and counties Manukau district health boards (DHBs).

The new Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) contract falls under Vodafone’s Ready Government programme, with healthAlliance the Northern DHBs’ shared services organisation providing non-clinical support services to these four DHBs.

“We’re very happy with the outcome of this new contract, which not only provides good value for the taxpayer and the region, but also helps our DHB partners continue the enablement of their mobile and digital healthcare strategies,” healthAlliance CEO, Myles Ward, said.

Ward said the new deal provides the four DHBs with benefits which can be used to support improving health outcomes for New Zealanders.

Specifically, it introduces affordable calling rates and increased data packages for designated DHB employees across the region, supporting the DHBs to become more digitised and mobilised.

As a key part of the partnership, Vodafone is also working to help the DHBs further develop mobility and digital strategies to improve the delivery of healthcare.

“The application of mobile technology within the healthcare sector has the potential to significantly increase efficiencies and improve patient experience,” Vodafone CEO, Russell Stanners, added.

“We want to innovate in this space together and further strengthen our 10-year partnership with healthAlliance and the four DHBs it represents.”

Vodafone is a member of the New Zealand government panel for TaaS, which is administered by the Department of Internal Affairs, and reflects the goals of the Government ICT Strategy.
