The Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council approved the 24 nKPIs to track and evaluate the Closing the Gap health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This report outlines the findings of an objective and independent review undertaken to determine the accuracy of data processing performed to produce the nKPIs, which are one of the key data sets used across government and the health sector to inform policy development. They are also used for monitoring activities in Indigenous health and support continuous quality improvement activity among service providers.

In addition, nKPI and OSR data quality supports the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (HPF). The HPF was developed to support a comprehensive and coordinated effort across and beyond the health sector to address the complex and interrelated factors that contribute to health outcomes experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Published biennially, the HPF reports provide a useful overview of the key national data collections and surveys to monitor progress in health outcomes, health system performance and broader determinants of health.
