Western Bay of Plenty PHO virtualises infrastructure with Revera’s Azure-enabled in-country cloud, Apollo
Administering services delivery to approximately 162,000 enrolled patients, WBOP is one of the country’s mid-sized PHOs. And like many modest-sized organisations, its IT systems heaved under weighty workloads, stifling IT modernisation.
Grant Ardern was hired to turn things around. As CIO, his first move consolidated the PHO's databases in a data warehouse, helping streamline analysis and reporting for administrative functions covering 28 medical practices under the PHO’s umbrella.
Then he turned to infrastructure.
