Mangere Community Health Trust (MCHT) is a non-profit organization established in 1992 that provides primary healthcare services to the Mangere community in Auckland, New Zealand. MCHT's integrated family health centers previously only used a Family Physician (FP) Practice Management System (PMS) to record clinical notes by and for FPs. The software, however, did not provide or facilitate communication between the broader multi-disciplinary health provider team and could not be accessed by mobile health providers. With the help of Microsoft Certified Partner HSAGlobal, MCHT deployed the Collaborative Care Management Solution (CCMS), a unified electronic system that manages longitudinal medical records and care management for patients with long-term conditions. As a result, MCHT can deliver better patient care, encourage patient self-care, and enhance mobile healthcare.
