Briefing to the incoming Minister of Health: December 2011

2 Feb 2012

This briefing provides information about the quality and safety of New Zealand’s health and disability sector and how health outcomes can be improved and value for money increased through better health quality and safety. We discuss why the Health Quality and Safety Commission (the Commission) was established a year ago, along with a brief description of what we are aiming to achieve, how we partner with the sector, what our work programme is, how we are funded and what the future holds.

The briefing also provides information about who is involved in improving quality and safety in New Zealand and provides some international comparisons.

Finally, it introduces our Board members, Chief Executive Officer, mortality review committee members and Roopu Māori members.
