Health services must report certain serious injuries, deaths, safety incidents and other data to Safer Care Victoria, the Victorian Agency for Health Information, or the independent councils we support.

Reporting information like this helps us understand where systems and processes are working well, and where there are opportunities to improve.

We share this data with health services to help them identify areas for improvement. We also release public reports.
