Draft for comment - HISO 10094:2021 Māori Descent and Iwi Affiliation Data Protocols

You are invited to review and provide comment on a draft of HISO 10094:2021 Māori Descent and Iwi Affiliation Data Protocols.

The protocols describe procedures for the standardised collection, recording and output of Māori descent and iwi affiliation data for the New Zealand health and disability system.

Collecting Māori descent and iwi affiliation information, in a way that is more accessible, connected and relevant to Māori, will ensure that health and disability system information complies with the key findings of the Waitangi Tribunal in Hauora: Report on Stage One of the Health Service and Outcome Kaupapa Inquiry (Wai 2575). This is intended to support the delivery of Whakamaua: Māori Health Action Plan 2020-25 (Whakamaua), as well as supporting the enablers and recommendations of the Health and Disability System Review Report in terms of improving equity of health outcomes for Māori.

This document is consistent with the Iwi Statistical Standard and Classification published by Stats NZ (statistical standard).  It outlines a new set of minimum standards that apply across the health and disability system to all organisations that collect, record and use iwi affiliation data. Integration of the protocols into the health and disability system will assist in the ongoing process of improving the quality, accuracy and consistency of iwi affiliation data.

The public comment process is being carried out by Health Information Standards Organisation (HISO).  The draft standard for public comment can be found online here:    https://consult.health.govt.nz/hiso/hiso-10094-2021-m-ori-descent-and-iwi-affiliation

Please make your submission using the above link on the Ministry of Health’s Consultation Hub by the closing date, Monday 22 November 2021
