This is the third national report on the national Key Performance Indicators (nKPIs) data collection. It captures data from more than 230 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 21 ‘process-of-care’ and ‘health outcome’ indicators, which focus on maternal and child health, preventative health and chronic disease management. The report shows improvements against almost all of the indicators.
