Review of accreditation outcomes data

In 2019–20, accrediting agencies continued to submit data on assessment outcomes through the Commission’s data collection portal. The portal automatically validates the data submitted to ensure that the information is consistent with the Commission’s requirements. The Commission analyses the data, and provides reports to state and territory regulators and various program administrators. Reports include:

  • Review of trends in actions that require improvement
  • Examination of the validity of not applicable actions awarded; these are actions from the NSQHS Standards that are not assessed because they do not apply in that service setting
  • Identification of health service organisations that meet the criteria for mandatory reassessment
  • Review of variation among accrediting agencies.
