BPAC Inc has contractual relationships with more than 21 DHBs and PHOs for the provision of decision support services within New Zealand. In addition to this, BPAC Inc has five contracts with national funders for delivery of national decision support services, specifically:
This contract is to provide decision support for the diagnosis, assessment, management and referral of patients with mental health problems. This programme is expected to standardise care across New Zealand while supporting locally led community interventions by automating the referral processes.
This programme is for the diagnosis and management of children with asthma throughout New Zealand. The unique feature of this programme is the production of an easy to use, tailored management plan for the child and caregiver.
This is for Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) reporting. It has been estimated that for every adverse drug reaction that is reported, there are another 150 that haven't been reported. The bestpractice ADR tool provides a very easy to use, accessible solution for reporting.

The Depression in Young People module addresses the identification of common mental disorders and the management of depression in primary care.
