The first national report on the national Key Performance Indicators (nKPIs) data collection captures data from over 200 primary health care organisations that receive funding from the Australian Government Department of Health to provide services primarily to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It presents data for 19 ‘process of care’ and ‘health outcomes’ indicators which focus on the prevention and management of chronic disease and maternal and child health. The report shows improvements against most of the ‘process of care’ indicators. It also shows organisations that perform better are spread across different geographic and service delivery environments.
