New Zealand has been one of the few countries in the world able to pursue an elimination strategy in their COVID-19 response. This COVID-19 response has required close collaboration and coordinated decision-making in the health sector between multiple departments and several layers of government, such as between the Ministry of Health, District Health Boards, laboratories and public health units. KPMG's network of expertise enables us to provide the right team to help improve outcomes and support New Zealand on a national level, backed by a leading and well-equipped global healthcare practice.
We believe the Health Sector Reform, consolidating 20 District Health Boards and 30 Primary Health Organisations into Health NZ and a streamlined Ministry of Health, should lead to more agile and efficient services. It will leave more funding and resources for front line health care, in areas where it is needed the most, to deliver on better and more equitable health outcomes for Aotearoa.
We welcome the emphasis on enabling greater access and pathways to care in the community and in primary care, to provide better and earlier care to all, reducing the need for expensive hospital treatment.
How we can help
Healthcare, aged care and social service systems must manage the often competing demands of quality, access and cost. As New Zealand’s population ages, technological solutions advance and stakeholder expectations increase, the demand for health, aged care and human services only continues to grow. The pressure to continuously improve outcomes within a fiscally constrained environment is a challenge for all providers.
KPMG offers governments, not-for-profit and private sector providers with a range of advisory, tax and audit services. Successfully helping payers and providers meet their business challenges requires an in-depth knowledge and experience in the sectors in which they operate.
KPMG brings together professionals with health, aged care and social services experience and insight to assist Government, not-for-profit and private sector providers to achieve better health and social outcomes for New Zealanders. Our team of professionals, with backgrounds in aged care, clinical services and government policy, bring an informed perspective on market challenges and opportunities from one sector to another to share best practice and leading thinking.
