Expanding healthcare quality and patient safety reporting across Queensland’s health system

Have your say and be part of the future of healthcare reporting in Queensland.

Expanding Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety Reporting Discussion Paper 2017

The Queensland Government has released this discussion paper to understand the views of the community about the collection, reporting and use of healthcare quality and patient safety information in Queensland.

Supporting the delivery of high quality care in Queensland hospitals and health services is the publication of information about the quality of healthcare services and the safety of patients as they interact with our health system.

We want to hear from patients, clinicians, health organisations, the media and others about the possible ways that healthcare quality and patient safety reporting may be expanded in Queensland.

The overarching desire is to:

  • further enhance information available to patients
  • improve transparency for healthcare professionals
  • support the efforts of the stakeholders funding, reporting on and regulating healthcare services, and
  • continue to drive improvements that maintain Queensland’s leading health system.

The public consultation process for online and written submissions for the Expanding Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety Reporting Discussion Paper 2017 closes at 5pm on Friday 27 October 2017.
