Evaluation of 13 Diagnostic Pilots: Report to The Ministry of Health

Between May 2008 and January 2009, the Ministry of Health Elective Services programme funded 14 diagnostic pilots at 10 District Health Boards around New Zealand. The Ministry of Health published a document that briefly summarises each of the pilots, ‘A summary of the Improving Patient Pathways – Diagnostic Pilots.’ Sapere Research Group (LECG Asia Pacific) evaluated these pilots with the following purposes:\

  • Whether The improvement processes implemented in the pilots were cost effective and provided value for money; and
  • Whether the improved processes introduced in the pilots should be considered for adoption by District Health Boards when improving primary care access to diagnostics.
