Te Whiringa Ora is an example of a successful integrated care service operating in the EBOP which is helping to reduce the burden on secondary services by improving patients self-management and strengthening their linkages with providers and other supports (both medical and social). The team of Registered nurse case managers and kaitautoko/ service coordinators work in a multidisciplinary way, alongside patients and their practices and other service providers for a time limited phase to ensure the patients themselves engage meaningfully with their own health conditions and with their providers.
