Advanced Management Systems (AMS) partners with Waikato DHB for workforce management technology & transformation
14 Mar 2019

Waikato District Health Board has partnered with Advanced Management Systems (AMS), New Zealand’s leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider of workforce management solutions to the health care sector, to deliver an end-to-end Cloud solution that serves its workforce management, payroll and HR functions.

 

Waikato DHB has chosen AMS’ innovative new Workforce as a Service (WaaS) platform for health, designed to serve the complexities of New Zealand’s public healthcare sector.

 

The integrated WaaS platform replaces Waikato DHB’s multiple systems and will deliver greater service efficiencies bringing benefits to healthcare staff and patients.

 

AMS CEO Joseph Yip says the new contract cements Cloud technology’s role in creating a more vibrant national health community where system efficiencies are maximised.

 

“AMS is thrilled to launch our Workforce as a Service offering, designed to serve New Zealand healthcare providers needing innovative technology solutions to allow our health workforce to work smarter, ultimately improving health outcomes for all New Zealanders. Our partnership with Waikato DHB means these benefits will filter through to our other DHB customers across a significant portion of the country.”

 

To deliver WaaS, AMS has partnered with Revera, part of Spark Health, to meet the complex requirements of workforce planning, rostering, payroll processing, workforce data collection and monitoring to enable significant digital transformation for Waikato DHB.

 

Yip says while the contract will initially bring benefits for patients and staff within the Waikato region, AMS has a national vision for improvements that support a stronger health workforce.  

 

“This partnership symbolises an important step towards our vision for improving health outcomes for all New Zealanders through effective, integrated health workforce management tools delivered through clever technology.

 

“AMS has a vision to deliver the benefits across all DHBs in New Zealand, to ultimately achieve greater health outcomes for the whole country.”

 

Waikato DHB says the new approach to its health service systems centres around putting its people at the heart to help empower staff.

 

“This is great news for our organisation as our previous systems were complex and not easy to use. This means we can reduce people’s frustration and provide up-to-date systems that are easy to use, allowing people to focus on what’s really important in healthcare,” says Gil Sewell, Waikato DHB Executive Director HR & Organisational Development.

 

“We pay a staff of more than 7,000 and there are many different union agreements and individual employment agreements. The new AMS system will manage this unavoidable complexity more smoothly, whilst significantly reducing the cost and complexity of processing pay,” says Andrew McCurdie, Waikato DHB Chief Financial Officer.
