Support in operationalising core hospital based outcome indicators (CHBOI) – Private sector organisations 2012-2014

In 2009, Australian Health Ministers endorsed the recommendation by the ACSQHC for core sets of indicators of safety and quality, one set of which was the initial set of core, hospital based outcome indicators (CHBOI). The indicators are focused on in-hospital mortality and readmissions for specific conditions.

Health Policy Analysis has been engaged by a number of private sector organisations to help impllement the indicators, as well as develop local processes and in-house skills to derive the indicators. This has enabled these organisations to monitor local practices in relation to the indicators.
