from our CE

Ian Anderson - Chief Executive

Thanks for visiting to learn more about HealthPathways.

I’m proud to be part of a passionate and dedicated team improving the health and wellbeing of people around the world.

For the past 14 years we have worked closely with the health and social care community in a number of countries to collaborate and standardise the way they do things locally while sharing best practice globally.

While this may seem a simple concept, the challenge is in successfully melding internationally shared systems and content with the need to establish and clearly document locally agreed pathways.

Our experience of stand-alone locally developed solutions is that they last as long as a few passionate individuals have the time and energy to maintain them, but they are not sustainable over time. By working in state, national, and international HealthPathways collectives we get the benefits of scale and sustainability, while retaining ownership and control of the necessary local variation in our pathways and service information. Together, we are the HealthPathways Community. We collaborate globally for local impact.

If you'd like to join the community that serves the healthcare needs of more than 30 million people around the world, please make contact with us.

About Us

HealthPathways started in Canterbury, New Zealand, in 2008, as a collaboration between Streamliners and The Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB).

Since its inception, over 600 clinical pathways have been produced in Canterbury using HealthPathways. Local Canterbury clinicians now use HealthPathways to make over 2000 better informed decisions with their patients daily.

HealthPathways has been a key enabler in Canterbury’s collaborative and integrated health system which has been recognised in a report by acclaimed British health authority, The King's Fund (August 2017).

Health systems across New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom have adopted and adapted many of the learnings from Canterbury. The HealthPathways methodology and toolset, in particular, has been adopted by around 50 health systems caring for 30 million people. Streamliners provides a shared platform and services to all health systems implementing HealthPathways.
