The development of indicators in METeOR improves quality, relevance, consistency and the availability of national information about the health and welfare of Australians. The drivers for standard development arise from the need for better information - whether it is statistical, administrative, clinical or other information. This ensures the data used in statistics is compatible and it facilitates National and International interoperability.
Information management groups and committees in the community services, health and housing assistance sectors have endorsed the use of METeOR for Council of Australian Governments (COAG) performance indicators to ensure compliance with the intergovernmental agreements of a National registry of Performance Indicators.
What is the value of METeOR to PI development
- Nationally maintained registry for PIs – the only one of its kind in Australia.
- Functional and user friendly templates that provide users with differing PI ‘views’.
- Items in the registry are ISO-11179 compliant, therefore items can be and are used for national and international comparability e.g. cancer registries.
- Established governance processes.
