Kestral welcomes Northland District Health Board, Northland NZ

February 2008

Consisting of four hospitals with a combined total of 328 beds, Northland District Health Board provides health and disability services to the 150,000 plus population of Te Tai Tokerau (Northland) in New Zealand. More than 2000 staff members offer acute mental health and other services from Maternity to Occupational Therapy and beyond.

Kestral implementation staff have completed installation at NDHB of a dedicated Karisma system which is integrated with the organisation’s existing Philips iSite and Sectra Mammo PACS. Prior to implementing Karisma, integration with the PACS was not possible for NDBH. The newly installed Karisma system will streamline workflow across all sites, with the data centre located at Whangarei.

To ensure that users were able to immediately implement the new system with the highest level of efficiency, training was provided on-site by experienced and specialist Kestral staff. Programmers too were on hand at Kestral to ensure the smooth transition from the previous system to the new and improved Karisma installation.

Northland District Health Board performs a vital and commendable role in providing essential healthcare to the community of Te Tai Tokerau. Kestral is delighted to play a small part in the day-to-day operation of this outstanding organisation.
