From 1 July 2019 reporting of clinical quality indicators for all Australian Government subsidised residential aged care providers will be mandatory.
Providers will be required to submit quarterly data through the My Aged Care Provider Portal, or to the Department using a user-friendly template, on three clinical quality indicators:
• pressure injuries
• use of physical restraint
• unplanned weight loss.
Under the new program, data will need to be provided for the 1 July 2019 to 30 September 2019 quarter, and for future quarters.
