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 key performance indicators for Indigenous-specific primary health care organisations.

The purpose of the Indigenous-specific primary health care National Key Performance indicators (nKPIs) is to provide reporting organisations with data that they can use for continuous quality improvement (CQI) and are based on best practice/clinical guidelines in three areas which are important for Indigenous health:

  • maternal and child health
  • preventative health
  • chronic disease management.

The data are also used at a national level to support policy, planning and progress (for example to consider progress against the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Closing the Gap targets, and support the national health goals set out in the Implementation Plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013–2023).

The population of interest in the nKPIs is the Indigenous regular client population of Indigenous Specific Primary Health Care organisations or maternal and child health programs/services funded by the Department of Health under its Indigenous Australian Health Programme (IAHP).

Collection and usage attributes

National reporting arrangement:Help on this term

Each organisation funded by the Australian Government Department of Health that is required to provide data to the national Key Performance Indicators should record service provision in clinical information management systems that allow the electronic transmission of data for the Indigenous-specific primary health care national Key Performance Indicators (nKPI) NBEDS (ISPHC nKPI NBEDS), to be used in the calculation of the indicators. Exceptions may be made for organisations that do not have compatible clinical information management systems to manually upload data.

Reporting organisations provide nKPI data twice a year, with the census dates of 30 June and 31 December. Data submission is conducted via the Health Data Portal.

Comments:Help on this term

This indicator set reports a 6 month period from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020.
