Powerful Partnerships – working together for social change

The National Hauroa Coalition, i-TROK, and Athena Software have joined forces to create a practice tool that is revolutioning cross sectorial service delivery in New Zealand.

This integrated and innovative system is revolutionising service delivery while improving the health, independence, and wellbeing of whānau families across New Zealand. Over a decade of global use,development, design and consultation with organisations and end-users has been invested so far in the software, to ensure its high performance.

Put simply, New Zealand has added its intellectual property and content into Athena software. Deployment partner i-TROK then helps organisations in the uptake of the system, providing ongoing training and support.

This alliancing model is based on providing a whānau centric platform that allows providers access to a user friendly comprehensive end to end system. Whānau Solutions unites all multidisciplinary services - regardless of funding streams - under a single unified system including a robust outcomes tracking framework.

Whānau Solutions combines whānau partnership models of best practice within a savvy hi-tech environment. This customised system has a clear focus on advancing better outcomes for Māori Whānau Providers and the families they serve.

The system has been successfully implemented in Te Rūnanga o Kirikiriroa, Kokiri Trust in Taumaranui, with plans underway to deploy in Te Rūnanga o Whaingaroa and Te Hononga in Otahuhu. 

At the heart of this powerful partnership is the vision to exemplify the wisdom of the whakatauki “Naku te rourou nau te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi” – with your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive.
