As previously announced, we have added the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard indicators created by the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Healthcare (ACSQHC) to PIRT, attached to the Gastrointestinal Endoscopy set.
The Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard indicators were well reported for their first collection with 48 organisations reporting on them.
Since then, we have added the 3rd and 4th Degree Perineal Tear Clinical Care Standard indicators, the Acute Coronary Syndromes as well as the Management of Peripheral Intravenous Catheters Clinical Care Standard indicators. These indicators are available for the first half of 2021 data submission.
In the next few weeks, we will be adding the Antimicrobial Stewardship, the Acute Stroke Clinical Care Standard indicators with a view to add all in use clinical care standard indicators before year’s end.
If you would like any set of clinical care standard indicators which have been implemented by ACHS added to your PIRT account for collection, please notify us at POS@achs.org.au
Please visit the ACSQHC website for more detail on each of their indicators: https://www.safetyandquality.gov.au/standards/clinical-care-standards/colonoscopy-clinical-care-standard/
