PHN Performance Framework

Page last updated: 08 December 2015

The PHN Performance Framework (the Framework) will outline the arrangements for monitoring, assessing and reporting on the performance of PHNs. The Framework will encompass three tiers of performance: national, local and organisational.

The national tier will centre on a small set of headline indicators to assess performance against health outcomes. Examples of possible headline indicators include: potentially preventable hospitalisations (per 1,000 population) and percentage of target population screening for breast, cervical and/or bowel cancer.

The local tier will assess performance using local performance indicators selected by PHNs through formal planning processes. The organisational tier will focus on compliance with contractual arrangements in key areas of establishment, operations and activity.

The Framework will use existing data collections where possible. Performance information on all PHNs will be made publicly available.
