PRIMHD (pronounced ‘primed’) is the Ministry of Health’s national collection of activity and outcomes data. It stands for ‘Programme for the Integration of Mental Health Data’. DHBs and NGOs provide HoNOS data to the Ministry of Health.
This data is used to report on what services are being provided, who is providing the services, and what outcomes are being achieved for tāngata whai ora across New Zealand’s mental health sector.
This information enables better quality service planning and decision making by mental health and addiction service providers at local, regional and national levels.
