The Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care is pleased to bring you the next webinar in our webinar series with Bernadette Aliprandi-Costa from the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care: Revision of the Framework for Australian clinical quality registries and the development of a CQR Quality Standard.

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) acknowledges the value of clinical quality registries (CQRs) informing health system improvement, and has undertaken significant work to assist CQR establishment and ongoing standards of practice. In 2014, all Health Ministers endorsed the Framework for Australian clinical quality registries (the Framework) and, in November 2019 the Commission convened the Clinical Quality Registry Advisory Group to advise on the project to revise the Framework.  

The purpose of the revised Framework is to minimise duplication and maximise the use of health data for the community. Upon completion, the Framework will provide a contemporary quality Standard for CQR governance, reporting, and technical infrastructure arrangements. These principles will be applicable to traditional and future-focused multi-dimensional CQRs and the various ownership models.
