The Adelaide Community Healthcare Alliance (ACHA), incorporating Ashford Hospital, Flinders Private Hospital and The Memorial Hospital; in partnership with its contracted manager Healthscope, have become the first Australian private health care providers to publish detailed quality performance data.
The launch of ourPerformance and www.myhealthscope.com.au on 7 November 2011, provides the most comprehensive suite of quality performance data in the Australian private health sector, showing national and individual data from all ACHA and Healthscope hospitals.
The websites feature hospital accreditation results, infection rates, falls and rehabilitation, unplanned hospital readmissions, unplanned returns to the operating theatre and Emergency Department waiting times.
Publication of this data is common overseas and is developing in Australia through initiatives such as the Australian Government’s MyHospitals website.
Where possible, we aim to collect quality indicators based on the recommendations of the Australian Commission for Quality and Safety in Healthcare, the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards and MyHospitals.
ourPerformance and MyHealthscope also offers useful resources for patients and visitors including tips for improving safety and preventing infection, such as hand washing techniques.
