The Role of IT in Improving Patient Safety - Monday 7th August 2006
Information technology (IT) is at the forefront of public and private sector efforts to improve healthcare safety, quality and efficiency. There is clear and compelling evidence that IT can play a critical role in addressing some of the challenges faced by our healthcare system.
Monitoring the Quality of Care in Hospitals - Monday 10th April 2006
The recently released Report of the Review of Future Governance Arrangements for Safety and Quality in Health Care highlighted that a key responsibility for the newly established Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care will be to show measurable improvement across a number of key indicators in the quality of health care received by patients in Australia.
This seminar discussed what quality indicator data is currently being collected, how it is being used and where gaps exist in monitoring performance in hospitals.
