Description:Help on this term

As part of the National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA), the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed that the Australian Government Department of Health, in partnership with the state and territory health departments and in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, would develop a set of national key performance indicators (KPIs) for Indigenous specific primary health-care services.

The Indigenous primary health care national key performance indicators (KPIs) will monitor, inform, and provide a direct line of sight between the activities of Australian Government, state- and territory-funded services that provide primary health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and the COAG Closing the Gap targets, in particular the targets for life expectancy and child mortality.

The indicators will enable monitoring of the contribution of this part of the health system in achieving Closing the Gap targets. The KPIs are intended to:

  • indicate the major health issues pertaining to the regular client population of Indigenous-specific primary health care services (especially those of maternal health, early childhood and the detection and prevention of chronic diseases)
  • outline the extent to which government-funded Indigenous-specific primary health- care services collect, record and review pertinent data on these issues, and
  • reveal changes in health risks or outcomes that may be driven by the quality of care that government-funded services provide to their clients.

The KPIs provide measures of the extent to which various general indicators of individual health and health-related behaviours among the Indigenous population are being captured by a targeted number of government-funded Indigenous-specific primary health-care services.

The population of interest in the KPIs is the regular client population of an Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health-care service that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health-care KPIs. A regular client is defined as a client who has an active medical record; that is, a client who attended the Department of Health-funded primary health-care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

National reporting arrangement:Help on this term

Each service funded by the Australian Government Department of Health to provide Indigenous-specific primary health care should record service provision in clinical information management systems that allow the electronic transmission of data for the Indigenous primary health care NBEDS (IPHC NBEDS), to be used in the calculation of the key performance indicators (KPIs).
