|Report number||AIHW Catalogue no IHW 123, national key performance indicators for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care no 1|
This is the first national report on the Indigenous primary health-care national key performance indicators data collection. It covers all the indicators collected since June 2012, and presents data analysed at the national level by jurisdiction, remoteness, and organisational size. The data are collected from over 200 primary health-care organisations receiving funding from the Australian Government Department of Health to provide services primarily to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The purpose of the indicators is to improve the delivery of primary health-care services by supporting continuous quality improvement activity among service providers. The indicators also support policy and planning at the national and state/territory level by monitoring progress and highlighting areas for improvement.
The 19 indicators presented in this report focus on chronic disease prevention and management and on maternal and child health. The indicators provide information on both process of care indicators and health outcomes for clients.
