Private Hospital Data Collection Review Final Report

An independent review of the Private Hospital Data Collection was conducted in 2011.

Clause B86 and B96 of the National Health Reform Agreement (NHRA) require improved data management and efficiency for hospitals, the use of existing national data collections, standardised data collection methods across jurisdictions, and the concept of ‘single provision, multiple use’ of data.

In 2011, in response to this requirement, the Department independently commissioned KPMG to undertake an expert examination and evaluation of the data supply chain from point of generation within private hospitals through to receipt by the Commonwealth.

The information contained in this Report does not necessarily reflect the view(s) of the Department and no endorsement should be assumed for the directions or recommendations proposed.
