The Victorian Health Incident Management System (VHIMS) is a standardised dataset for the collection and classification of clinical incidents, occupational health and safety incidents, hazards and consumer feedback.

VHIMS was established in 2009 by the Department of Health and Human Services (the Department). It is coordinated by the Victorian Agency for Health Information in collaboration with the Department, Safer Care Victoria and, importantly, Victorian health services.

Incident reporting is important in ensuring that everyone has an accurate picture of where concerns are and where we’re getting it right. Incident and feedback information collected in VHIMS helps to drive local and statewide improvements in quality, safety and experience.
