The Clinical Measurement and Reporting Committee was formed in March 2017 to assist VAHI in ensuring that the measurement and reporting of clinical quality and safety and patient outcomes performance information is useful, valid, reliable and easy to interpret.
The Committee aims to ensure that VAHI’s clinically-relevant performance information is useful for clinicians, health services, Safer Care Victoria and its clinical networks, and the Department of Health and Human Services to better fulfil their oversight and improvement responsibilities.
The Committee offers advice on improvements to the measurement and presentation of clinical quality, safety and patient outcome information contained in VAHI’s reports. It also advises VAHI on which measures should be prioritised for development and use in Victoria. This assists VAHI’s research and development agenda and provides valuable insights into how we can help drive improvements in clinical care.
The Committee is chaired by the Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer, Ann Maree Keenan, from Safer Care Victoria. Membership includes clinicians and chief executives, with representation from Victorian public health services and private hospitals.
According to Ms. Keenan, ‘The Committee plays a very important role towards the achievement of VAHI’s goals through the provision of advice on the suitability of measures for driving clinical improvement.’
