National Report on Health Services Accreditation Performance

The definition and clarity of information that the Evaluation and Quality Improvement Program (EQuIP) collects allows ACHS to build an expansive picture of healthcare
performance achievements based on organisations' self-assessments and the results of on-site surveys against the standards.

The ACHS National Report on Health Services Accreditation Performance 2011 - 2012
(5th edition) describes the performance of healthcare organisations participating in the ACHS accreditation programs, EQuIP 4 and EQuIP5, during surveys conducted between 1 January 2011 - 31 December 2012. The report's Key Findings provide an overview of survey trends observed across 2011 - 2012, as well as to highlighting areas of high performance and areas that continue to present a challenge.

In addition to the 5th edition of the National Report on Health Services Accreditation
Performance, web versions are provided below of the 4th (2009 - 2010) and 35rd (2007 - 2008) editions.

Big thank you for the excellent webinar on NSQHS Standard 5 on Tuesday 17 March. The topic was presented in a very clear way with lots of examples of what surveyors would expect to see when on site.
