CHA has provided a submission to the House of Representatives Inquiry into the establishment of the National Performance Authority.
In the submission CHA argues that the establishment of a body that brings together performance information on health outcomes, safety and quality metrices as well as financial and administrative data should be supported. We also argue that care needs to be taken in designing performance indicators to avoid unintended consequences; that information collections need to be rationalised; and that the governance arrangements should provide for representation from across the health sector, including non government hospitals.
The Parliamentary Library has also released its Bills Digest, with quite a few references to CHA's submission to this and earlier inquiries http://www.aph.gov.au/library/pubs/bd/2010-11/11bd086.pdf
