A big endorsement from Finance Minister Bill English for Whanau Ora and the information systems that underpin it.

The Deputy Prime Minister told Te Pou Matakana's Measuring What Matters conference in Auckland this morning Whanau Ora was already one of the most-audited, most-measured systems around, and he wants to rest of the state sector to meet a similar standard of reporting.

He wants government to develop something like Whanau Tahi Navigator, which gives Whanau Ora providers a view of clients across a range of services.

Mr English says Whanau Ora faces resistance because its success will force other agencies to change.

" So over the next couple of years as we build that toolkit around concepts and ideas that are pretty straight forward that you're implementing, I'm hoping and it's still a hope, you will see the other government systems you interact with gradually become more aligned with the type of approach that you are taking," he says.

Bill English expects the smarter government and mainstream agencies to start competing with Whanau Ora once they see the money is going to commissioning agencies like Te Pou Matakana.
