From 1 July 2019 the National Aged Care Quality Indicator Program will be mandatory for all Commonwealth funded residential aged care services. As part of this initiative the Australian Government has committed to publish quality indicator data by the end of 2019 and also committed to consult with the aged care sector on the publication of the quality indicator data.

The department is working with the Australian Institute for Health and Welfare (AIHW) to conduct consultations with peak aged care representative organisations regarding the publication of data for the QI Program.

The consultation sessions are scheduled for 6 June 2019 in Canberra and 7 June 2019 in Melbourne with a discussion paper to be distributed to participants prior to the sessions.

For more information about the QI Program, visit the department's website or email QPsec [at] health.gov.au.
