The Commission's purpose is to contribute to better health outcomes and experiences for all patients and consumers, and improved value and sustainability in the health system by leading and coordinating national improvements in the safety and quality of health care.
Within this overarching purpose the Commission aims to ensure people are kept safe when they receive health care and that they receive the health care they should.
The ACSQHC Strategic Intent 2020 - 2025 has four priority areas:
Safe delivery of health care: Clinical governance, systems, processes and standards ensure patients, consumers and all staff are safe from harm in all places where health care is delivered.
Partnering with consumers: Patients, consumers, carers and the community are engaged in understanding and improving health care for all.
- Partnering with healthcare professionals: Healthcare professionals, organisations and providers are engaged and supported to deliver safe and high-quality care.
- Quality, value and outcomes: Evidence-based tools, guidance and technology are used to inform delivery of safe and high-quality care that is integrated, coordinated and person-centred.
