Commission releases Health Quality and Safety Indicators

21 Dec 2012 | Health Quality Intelligence

Health Quality and Safety Indicators are a set of measures of all aspects of quality for the whole New Zealand health system. The Commission will use them to track progress in the health and disability sector over time and compare ourselves with other countries.

The Commission is required under legislation to develop and publish regularly a set of indicators to drive improvement of the quality and safety of New Zealand’s health and disability support services.

These indicators have now been developed and were launched on our website this week. This is the first time the Commission has published these indicators.

Over time we expect that the indicator set will change, as definitions for existing indicators are refined, new indicators are added and others are ‘retired‘ as they become less relevant.
