This page refers to the Performance and Accountability Framework, an intergovernmental document that assigned various reporting responsibilities to the former National Health Performance Authority. From 1 July 2016, activities related to reporting against the indicators contained in the Framework are the responsibility of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
Note: All indicators for Medicare Locals will be reported by Indigenous and non-Indigenous status where statistically possible.
As the Medicare Locals will be newly established independent corporations a large number of indicators will require data development work and it is envisaged that the indicators below will be introduced progressively over time. However, some primary care data is already collected, including through the Divisions of General Practice’s National Performance Indicators framework.

6.3.5 Population health outcome measures: included in healthy communities reports to provide context for the interpretation of Medicare Local performance indicatorsNote: Initially these measures are expected to provide contextual and planning information for Medicare Locals. Over the long term, and as the Framework and measures become more sophisticated, relative changes in these measures may be used to assess Medicare Local performance.
