As part of our commitment to deliver high quality, timely and actionable data to drive quality and safety improvement, VAHI is developing an interactive data portal that will be released in the first half of 2019.
When VAHI was established in 2017, it assumed responsibility for much of the health service reporting previously done by the Department of Health and Human Services (the Department). This included responsibility for existing reports that were previously produced by the Department (including Monitor and PRISM), as well as developing new reports for boards and clinicians with a specific focus on quality and safety.
The new portal will transform our approach to reporting the measures contained in these reports by making the information digital, interactive and customisable.
The portal’s functions will be released in stages, with each phase targeting the specific needs of VAHI’s audiences.
The first release will focus on a redevelopment of the existing Victorian Health Services Performance website (performance.health.vic.gov.au). It will also establish the security infrastructure that will allow more granular information to be provided to authorised users (clinicians and health services).
The second release will provide health professionals with the ability to explore the data that sits behind the quality, safety and other relevant performance measures.
VAHI has engaged with a number of stakeholders and user groups to help understand the way they would like to access and use this information, including the Department, Safer Care Victoria, health service CEOs and other health service staff across the state.
We would like to thank those who have taken part in workshops and interviews. The quality and depth of the insights provided will be crucial in designing the best possible user experience for the portal.
We will give further updates as the project progresses. For more information, please contact Steve Graham, Director, Information Infrastructure, Management and Standards on 9096 1519.
