Project objectives

To ensure data consistency, quality and effective collation of sensitive information relating to its Australian Health Service Safety and Quality Accreditation (AHSSQA) Scheme, the Commission initiated a consultancy to advise on an improved data collection method to capture, collate and report assessment results.

Australian Commission on Safety

and Quality in Healthcare

Our approach

HPA initially assessed of the risks of the Commission’s current processes and management of accreditation information, followed by the development of a solution, which included data set specification (DSS) identifying and standardising the data elements required to manage the assessment process.


HPA developed a plan for implementing the recommendations of the review and the data set specification. The data set specification was uploaded in METeOR – AIHW’s metadata repository.
