PICMoRS is a mnemonic and framework designed to guide assessors in their assessment of health service organisations for accreditation to the NSQHS Standards. PICMoRS stands for Process, Improvement, Consumer participation, Monitoring, Reporting and Systems. In 2019–20, a new fact sheet was developed for health service organisations to support them in using PICMoRS to prepare for quality improvement and assessment.

All assessors are required to use PICMoRS for assessments. This is monitored via the post-assessment survey distributed to all health service organisations undergoing assessment, and feedback from accrediting agencies.
