Australian Health Performance Framework

The Australian Health Performance Framework supersedes both the National Health Performance Framework and the Performance and Accountability Framework (PAF).

The Australian Health Performance Framework (868KB PDF) (the AHPF) provides a navigation tool to support reporting on Australia’s health and health care performance. It supersedes the National Health Performance Framework and the Performance and Accountability Framework and should have primacy over other sector-specific frameworks. It is intended that, over time, other existing sector-specific health performance frameworks will be linked to the AHPF.

The AHPF conceptual framework (77KB PDF) highlights the different factors that affect the health of the Australian population (whether internal or external to the health system) and emphasises the interrelationships between factors within the health system.

The framework was endorsed by the National Health Information and Performance Principle Committee (NHIPPC) on 7 September 2017 and by the Australian Health Minister’s Advisory Council (AHMAC) on 22 September 2017. In May 2019, AHMAC endorsed an initial list of AHPF indicators for reporting from August 2019.
