As flagged in the March 2018 VAHI news, VAHI is undertaking a comprehensive review of its current reports as part of our annual reporting program development.

The process for developing VAHI’s reporting program comprises five stages. It is designed to optimise opportunities for VAHI’s report products to stimulate quality and safety improvements, increase transparency and accountability, and inform the community.

The five stages in the development process are:

  1. Requirements gathering (desktop review and formal consultations)
  2. Feasibility assessment (technical and resources)
  3. Prioritisation of reporting developments (impact and effort)
  4. Development and communication of the reporting program
  5. Review – annual review through the next reporting program development process and through ongoing feedback. In addition, formal report reviews will occur at least every three years for each report.

The formal consultations kicked off in March with presentations to clinical directors, the Victorian Clinical Council and health service CEOs. In April VAHI will be consulting with Directors of Medical Services and Nursing and VAHI’s Clinical Measurement and Reporting Committee. Consultations will run through to May.

VAHI will also work closely with Safer Care Victoria and the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure the reporting program aligns with Victorian Government priorities.

These consultations are a great mechanism to receive feedback and we expect to hear a number of views that will inform the 2018–19 reporting program.
