Renal key performance indicators (KPIs) were established in 2012 to drive service improvement. Safer Care Victoria (SCV) produces quarterly KPI reports that compare how the state’s renal services are performing against these measures.

To make sure the measures are appropriate and useful, we have reviewed the renal KPIs. This report shares our findings and includes recommended changes and opportunities to improve performance reporting.

What’s changing

Our recommendations are to:

  • develop a better measure of the quality of CKD education to replace KPI 1 and remove KPI 1a
  • enhance the collection of data for KPI 2 on reasons why planned haemodialysis patients start dialysis without arteriovenous access
  • change KPI 3 to a benchmarking approach
  • establish new KPIs to measure bloodstream infection rates in haemodialysis patients, standardised mortality ratio for dialysis patients and transplant patients, and risk-adjusted graft failure ratio for transplant patients.
  • combine KPI 5 and 6 to capture renal transplant status at six and 12 months after beginning renal replacement therapy.
