Measuring and tracking our success
Our 2019–20 corporate plan identified our priority initiatives for the year to contribute to our mission. To mark the first year of our three-year strategy, we have assessed these initiatives in line with the four workstreams identified in our strategic plan: delivering the foundations, enriching our products and services, enhancing impact and broadening scope.
|Horizons||Workstreams||Workstream descriptions||Indicative activity focus|
|Immediate priorities||Delivering the foundations||›||Strengthening and enhancing strong foundational systems, processes and capabilities||High||Mid||Low|
|Enriching our products and services||›||Ensuring that VAHI delivers on its current reporting scope and Targeting zero expectations, while improving on current service delivery targets.||High||Mid||Low|
|Medium-term goals||Enhancing impact||›||Focusing on new information products and analyses that lead to change in clinical practice and ultimately health outcomes||Low||Mid-high||Mid|
|Long-term aspirations||Broadening scope||›||Identifying new themes and data areas that allow VAHI to have impact beyond health and into human services.||Low||Low||Mid|
|Activity focus: Low > Mid > Mid-high > High|
Activity focus: Low > Mid > Mid-high > High
In 2018, VAHI developed an evaluation framework to assess and measure our progress against our strategic objectives. We developed a suite of impact measures that assessed perceptions of VAHI, its product and impact across external stakeholders (including health service executives, clinicians and clinical networks), the Department, SCV and VAHI staff. These were first reported on in our Year in review 2018–19 with largely positive results, while also providing us with valuable insights into how and where we could improve. These insights helped us identify priority areas for VAHI from 2018 onwards.
Our intention has always been to track results across these measures every two years, so we could assess our progress over time. To this end, we were due to undertake follow-up surveys with stakeholders in March–April 2020, with reporting ready for inclusion in this Year in review. Due to the impact of COVID-19, we decided to defer undertaking the stakeholder survey to a time in the future when stakeholders have more time and capacity to share their views on our performance. When that time comes, we will share the results and advise on any changes from our 2018 benchmarks.
